The popular Facebook page “I F****** Love Science” is getting its own online show through the Discovery Network’s online Test Tube, and site creator Elise Andrew also is developing a show for the Science Channel, according to Adweek.

In short, it pays to have a kick-ass FB page that has 6.6 million “likes” and myriad daily reposts. So hang in there “Dude Who Lives in His Mom’s Basement,” valiantly holding on to the dream that your “Sexy Robots Appreciation Page” may go viral.
