How did a science geek like you get such an attractive wife? GARY HAMMOND, LondonNo, geek has an image problem, applying geek to a fan of all things science isn't the problem.
I suggest you go to salon.com, type "The Sexiest Man Living" in the search box and eat your words. But seriously (of course you knew there had to be a "but seriously"), science has an image problem with young people, and phrases like "science geek" don't help. Isn't it a bit like "kraut" or "dago"?
