How many nuclear engineers does it take to change a light bulb ?

Seven: One to install the new bulb, and six to determine what to do
with the old one for the next 10,000 years.

If science were explained to the average person in a way that is accessible
and exciting, there would be no room for pseudoscience. But there is a kind
of Greshams Law by which in popular culture the bad science drives out the
good. And for this I think we have to blame, first, the scientific community
ourselves for not doing a better job of popularizing science, and second, the
media, which are in this respect almost uniformly dreadful. Every newspaper
in America has a daily astrology column. How many have even a weekly
astronomy column? And I believe it is also the fault of the educational
system. We do not teach how to think. This is a very serious failure that
may even, in a world rigged with 60,000 nuclear weapons, compromise the human
future.

"A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple
system that worked."

"Well, you see, its such a transitional creature. Its a piss-poor
reptile and not very much of a bird."
-- Melvin Konner, from "The Tangled Wing", quoting a zoologist who has
studied the archaeopteryx and found it "very much like people"
