By “Superscientist”, I mean in the Rusty Venture/Hubert Farnsworth/1950s Sci-Fi Film Mad Inventor way, not the Albert Einstein/Alan Turing/Stephen Hawking vein.
So, let’s pretend that Little Johnny Bloggs is about to turn 18 and is thinking about going to university. Not be a doctor or a lawyer or an HR representative, but something far cooler- a Superscientist.
Little Johnny loves Science!* but has no idea what he should be studying to fufil his dream of becoming a Superscientist. Assuming for the purposes of this discussion there’s a university that offers a generalist Bachelor of Superscience degree (and a postgraduate Doctorate in Superscience course, with optional majors in either Scientific Inventions or Supervillainy) what (ostensibly “serious” or “real”) subjects should Little Johnny be considering in furtherance of his goal?
*A distinct concept to conventional science, as it involves a lot of stuff about Atomic Power and Lasers and Walking Eyes and Robots. Just go and watch The Venture Bros; it sums the whole thing up pretty well.
