    Other attempts:

    query "star trek fan" - 81% male (nerds!)
    query "condensed matter" - 82% male, age 18-24 (nerds?)
    url "www.nytimes.com" - 60% male, age >50

    but
    query "einstein" - 55% female, age 35-49
    although the crackpot's version becomes
    query "einstien" - 54% male, age 24-39

    query "richard dawkins" - 54% female, age >50
    query "william dembski" - 60% male, age <18 (dumb kids!)

    url "www.myspace.com" - 63% female, age 18-24

    url "xxx.lanl.gov" (the arXiv) - 57% male, age 18-24
