Can you tell the difference between the sort of person who would write a programming language and a serial killer?

It's getting close to Halloween so this is a good time to test your powers of detection.

Malevole has a lovely survey that asks if you can tell whether a person is a famous computer scientist or famous for another reason.

I'm interested in whether biologists as a group are able to tell the difference.

If you'd like to play:

1. Go take Malvole's survey first,

2. Then come back here and take mine.

It won't take much time and I'll post the results up in a couple of weeks.
