Quote of the day, 16 December 2011

“As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life—so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.”

–Matt Cartmill

“Of course, you become an archbishop to meet boys.

–Doug Nelson

“Scientists don’t meet girls either”


or why I love BoingBoing comments.
