Thank A Scientist
« on: August 30, 2012, 03:11:55 am »
We hear a lot in this country that we should thank the vets. Thank a veteran for your freedom! Honk for the troops! Multiple national holidays, etc, etc.

While I appreciate and respect the veterans, what I have possibly never heard is "Thank a scientist." Thank a student of science for your freedoms... It makes sense, right? The freedom to live past thirty? Freedom from a plethora of old-world disease? Freedom to refridgerated food, air conditioning, automobiles, chairs, glass, plumbing, electricity, recorded music, computers, phones, the internet, eyeglasses, hearing aids, lasting teeth, airplanes, hospitals, even (for better or worse) televisions... Thank a student of mechanical engineering, for example, for your doors, cabinets, dresser drawers... Thank an architect for having a shelter to live in at all... Thank a student of science.

Obviously not everybody shares my opinion.

Sorry, I'm boycotting scientists until they cough up what they've been promising for 60 damn years:

- Radiation-proof metallic unisex leotards.
- Flying cars.
- Rocket packs.
- Moon/Mars colonies.
- Ocean-floor cities.
- Hoverboards.
- The end of famine, disease, war, and poverty.

Remember those things? What happened there?

- Flying cars.

I vote against this one.  I don't want humans driving the REGULAR cars.

Thankfully, that's one thing you can't blame scientists for.
