Is my Sweetheart a scientist?

I fucking LOVE my sweetheart. It is our anniversary, and I wanted to share something funny that I love about her.

She is a scientist, or is not one, depending on the observer. Heisenbergs Scientist (or maybe Shroedingers Scientist)

Years ago, she worked for the Government of Canada. Her title was 'Scientist', according to the business card drawn up by HR. This card was drawn up for her when working in a Lab, where she has an office, a white lab coat, safety glasses, a pocket protector, closed-toe shoes and logs in samples, runs them, conveys results to clients, provide referrals to other laboratories when appropriate, and complain to the few 'real scientists' she works with about how the Gub'ment don't know who is and isn't a scientist.

Her BSc and other technical certifications aside, I have to accept her ruling that she isn't a 'real scientist'. I mean, you know me - I'm no scientist!

Anyway, I just wanted to share one of the funny things that happened on my way to loving this beautiful, loving partner and friend. If she isn't a scientist, she is certainly science-minded.

What do you think? Is she a scientist?

What are her degrees and certifications?

Do you need a PhD to be a "real scientist"? I don't know the answer to that one.

Not having a degree in music does not make a person who makes music not a real musician.

Cunt, took me years to mentally accept the "engineer" in Software Engineer as designating me and others as true? engineers. (I earned a BA in Chemistry, so was merely an artistic chemist (lol) who then never earned a dime with that, and went instead straight into scientific computer programming.)

I had/have lots of respect for those who go through the classic Engineering schools of EE, ME, CE, etc. (electrical, mechanical, chemical).

My degree is in Computer Engineering. I took a lot of the core EE classes (except e-mag fields) and my Sr. year had a bunch of Comp Sci classes.

Sounds like a technician role.

My job title is Commonwealth Scientific Officer. This is the same job title for almost everyone who works at CSIRO.

I'm not a scientist.

I think so, too. As to doing 'real science', I remember a quote which, at first, seemed a bit derisive to scientistls...it went something like this:
Quote:
most scientists are bottle-washers and button-sorters
Upon careful reflection, of course I realize the importance of sorting those buttons, and having those bottles washed. The daily grind is indeed science.

However, I don't think she is a scientist. Not because of what I know, but because of what she knows.

Her BSc makes her understand that her job is not 'doing science'. Her technical certifications tell me that she knows how to operate the equipment, not necessarily how to design an experiment.
