This is where Projectors learn just how geeky Bil is. I have a new crush. He's not a model, or a body builder, or a sweet little twink. Instead, he has a receding hairline and a PhD in Robotics. Oh, and two Masters. Does your crush have two masters degrees? He's written three books and is a contributing editor to Popular Mechanics. Smart, cute and funny? Be still my heart.

dan_wide.jpgI was watching the History Channel last night and this new show "The Works" came on. The show itself? Not that exciting; it reminded me of Discovery Channel's Build It Bigger. But the host? I'm completely smitten with Daniel H. Wilson.

When I first saw him, I asked Jerame if Discovery had given their geeky host Danny Forster an extreme makeover. When I realized that it was a different guy, I hit "The Google" looking for more. Other than a few videos of him talking about his book "How to Survive a Robot Uprising" and his personal (not updated often enough) blog, I came up with bupkis. I have graciously provided the clip after the jump so you too can spend a few minutes stalking fantasizing learning how to survive that android takeover.

Best part? I'd bet my bottom dollar that he's gay. My gaydar tingled from the moment I saw him. *sigh* I'll bet he doesn't even know I exist.

Bat I bet after that blog post he will be told by a friend that you exist.

Oh, I love the nerdy types, too. I can see why you're obsessed. And I'm totally gonna check out the book about surviving the robot uprising. I'm not as worried about robots as I am zombie uprisings. Much more threatening to humanity and the planet in general. But still . . . a girl likes to be prepared!

My God, I hope so. *swoons*

And if anyone finds photos of him like I did on the Big Brother guys...

If he's not gay, I'll leave my wife and join your *learning* experience.I think it's the glasses.

Bil, I think you are seeing Bill Gates in his eyes

Now that I know your type, you have to check out the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. I think of it as a really funny show, but you'll think of it as mancandy. ;-)

Jeramie, I think it is time to grab Bil's mouse. Just saying, his mind is wandering.

What's funny, Rory, is that he's not my usual type at all. (I have a thing about balding men since I'm, well, becoming follicley challenged myself.)

I don't know what it is about him. It's something more than just the looks. I liked the way he moved and I really like how intelligent he is.

Well, either way, you should check out the show. The premise is that these guys are *so* intelligent about things academic and worldly, that they're barely functional on a human level. It's very funny. And one of the main characters is a fairly close physical match for your mancrush.

As far as follicles, I'm growing my forehead myself. But Patrick Stewart still doesn't do anything for me. ;-) (Well, other than save the universe, of course)

I made out with him in college and last I heard he was married so no, not gay. Sorry boys! He's ours!
