Nerd Notes: Academic Seeks Oxbridge Egg Donor

That's right: a British zoologist is seeking an egg donor, but only if the donor attended Oxford or Cambridge.

Speaking of this topic, I can't resist posting this satire from 2006.

In all seriousness, I've actually seen signs and flyers in Nerdworld asking for egg donors. Apparently you can make a pretty penny if you (or, really, your ovum) is selected by wealthy, infertile couples. I've seen figures ranging from $10,000 on up.

You know, like all nerds I'm always short of cash, but I don't think I'd sell my own ova. That just sounds ... creepy.
