Not Lab Members
Physicist, Nobel Prize winner. You see my physics students don't understand it... That is because I don't understand it. Nobody does. That's why we stick with biology.
Singer. Why the heck is it called Evolution anyway? It should be Elvislution! Yes, the Big E is everywhere...
Wernher von Braun
Applied rocket scientist. Basic science is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing. Still, we know what we're doing.
Sang We are scientists, we do genetics, we leave religion to the psychos and fanatics. Why? We don't know, he's not a scientist, he's a singer.
Philosopher. Fervent advocate of the objective discourse. Truth began at the moment when empirical knowledge itself, and on its own, allowed access to the truth. That's why we love experiments.
Actor. Icon. Rebel without a cause. Is that a student activist?
Writer. Realists do not fear the results of their study. We do not.
Impresario. Luxury is the freedom of mind, its independence, in short the politically incorrect. We could not have said it better.
Author. Eminent former citizen of Lausanne. All that is human must retrograde if it does not advance. So let's move forward.
Car mechanic from Trois-Rivières, Québec. Coined our lab motto
Artist, punk icon. Dreamed of Paris while sitting on a coffin drinking coffee, wearing black on black, with negative feelings. Just like us when one of our papers is rejected.
Eminent composer. I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings. Maybe a good advice on how to do science.
Secret agent. There's only two things I cannot stand in this world: scientists who cannot take criticism from their colleagues, and peer review.
Phycisist, Nobel Prize winner. If your experiment needs statistics, you ought to think of a better experiment. Right, unless you do .... OK, no comment.
Actor, NRA president. I'll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands! Well, who has it now?
Johan van der Smut a.k.a Goldmember
Villain. He's from Holland, isn't that weird? Smoke and a pancake anyone?
Philosopher. Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth - more than ruin, more even than death. Time to be fearless then.
Musician & writer. How could evolution have had a trajectory towards a man who invented such hilarious stories? Is it divine intervention?
Philosopher. Thought our efforts are tragically in vain, because in the end We can never know why the world exists.
