Sung to Beverly hillbillies:
Let me tell you a story bout a man named Rick
A really brilliant guy, who did’nt know dick
Then one day he was cutt’in him some wood
But did’nt really know what he outta should.
Flooring that is …Table saw… Push’in stick
Rick, a molecular biologist, a life long friend and one of the smartest "scientists" i know called me the other day. He said he was going to put new laminate flooring in his house. He said he was going to do it himself. I asked "why don't you hire it out?" He stated he wanted to show the little lady he was handy around the house and was tired of paying huge fees for things he could do himself, and it would help calm him for his long days toils. And besides, he'd already bought a table saw for the job. I stated some things were best left to the professionals. He said "Hey, I construct DNA molecules, I sure I can handle this flooring. Well OK, lets talk about this summers get together.
I got an E-mail from him a couple days ago. A picture says a thousand words.
My point is........
Just because your a scientist, professor, Baccalaureate Magna cum loudly
, etc. really does not mean you know all things or are right about what you may spew. Sometimes it the little people that have a greater grip on the actual world around them. Did not the scientists of the day, back when, say the world was flat? Some things require tangable evidence and some just require faith. Faith, for the most part cannot be backed by research and facts, but in my experience, is right a lot of times.
