Can you make it look like you're really, really busy working at your terminal? Hey, that was pretty convincing! Now you can safely spend the rest of the day with one of the summer's coolest time-wasters: Professor Julius Kelp's Endless Summer Chemistry Test, the sharpest movie quiz ever named for the Jerry Lewis character in The Nutty Professor.

Actually, it's less a quiz than a surprisingly thought-provoking questionnaire. "What movie have you encouraged more people to see than any other? Is it possible to know with any certainty if you could like or love someone based partially on their taste in movies? If so, what film might be a potential relationship deal-breaker for you, or the one that might just seal that deal?" Then there's also this no-brainer: "George Clooney or Matt Damon?"

I found this via The ScreenGrab, the excellent blog Bilge Ebiri runs over at Nerve.com. Without Bilge's tip, I'd never have found the site hosting the Summer Chemistry Test: Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule, which would make a great title someday for Randy Horick's autobiography.
