This is the "Nerdiest Keychain Contest" spreadsheet - The contest is now closed, and winners will be announced shortly.

3
the winner will be chosen from among entrants who submit a subject for a "nerdy" product. This product's function (keychain, brooch, necklace, etc. ), as well as other design elements will be determined later by TaylorCustom.

5
Entries will be judged according to this equation:
w=an^2/dwhere:
6
7
w=winner
the three entrants whose concept score the highest according to the above equation
8
a=aesthetics
Some nerdy products might be aesthetically suboptimal... for example, stromatolite earrings (no offense intended to our prokaryotic brethren!). Also, some very attractie objects, such as eliptical galaxies, might look unspectacular as pewter castings, and so these would also score low in this category.
9
n=nerdiness
This is a quantity which we are considering to be a function of a concept's scientific importance, and its obscurity. For example, a ribosome would score high in both categories, while a star would score high only in the first.
10
d=difficulty
This quantity is a function of manufacturability and mechanical rubustness. for example, a hippo keychain scores better than a giraffe keychain for this parameter.
