After a hard day down the lint mines realigning brackets, its nice to turn to the comic section and such greats as:
rpielke says: January 3, 2014 at 1:21 pm: …Your work really should be funded by the NSF or other such grant awarding organizations.
I hasten to add that RP Sr is not speaking of me, no, he is talking of renowned blogger Bob Tisdale. BT has, he says, been spending 8 to 16 hours-per-day blogging, writing books and producing videos over the past few years, but alas it doesn’t pay the rent so he needs to get a job. I don’t think I need to say any more about that.
The “*” is another great one:
*You are a Ph. D. de facto; Einstein’s doctorate from Oxford was “honorary.”
As you’d expect from the Dork Side, this is wrong/misleading: Einstein had an earned doctorate from Zurich.
[Update: 2014/01/17: BT has yet another whinge up at WUWT (don't bother follow the details) in which he says I am an independent climate researcher and regular contributor at the award-winning science blog WattsUpWithThat. But this isn't really true. He's retired, as he says himself, and no longer a regular at anything.]
