Screwing up royally on purpose at work and having absolutely nothing happen to you. Named for Dr Richard Sternberg.
I think being Sternberged means going from being a third-rate scientist in a clerical position at NIH with a hobby of indulging, and possibly sharing, Creationists' fantasies, to being wined and dined by Fox news and Coral Ridge Ministries, flown around by the DI, giving lectures to fundies and interviews for hefty fees, and possibly getting a do-nothing job for life at some Christian college. Not a bad deal if you're into that kind of stuff.
