Even kids in jr high can figure out that we’ve been spoon-fed some misconceptions of how scientists look and act. I wonder where they get these ideas from. Certainly not the media. They would never create caricatures of real people.

    Good stuff, Evil! Is there something similar for IT professionals? We might have it even worse than scientists.

    How beautiful!
    “A scientist is a person who had very good grades in school. A scientist is a person who can adapt to different languages. A scientist is a person who can relax. A scientist is a person who really likes his job. A scientist, truly, is a normal, happy, nice person.”
