We’re a mixed bag, folks that Ed and Cecil have accumulated over the years from one spot or another. A few of us have actual professions that are relevant to some of the questions we get – such as Doug, the bug-looney, or Jill, the AIDS-expert. The Straight Dope Science Advisory Staff includes an auto junkyard dealer, a lawyer or two, a professional Tuba player, a national park ranger wannabe, a coupla military folk, a coupla computer whizzes (that means they pee on computers, I think), a chef/pathologist (don’t ask), an actuary and mathematician, a professional singer of church music, and a photographer with purple hair (at the moment.)
That answer your question? Eclectic, I’d say, as most of Cecil’s resources.
