Mad scientists are made, not born

Know how I said I was susceptible to madness? It’s worse than I thought:Crap. I’ve experienced everything on that list except for building a Doomsday device. Hopefully my data point is closer to neural failure so the world has enough time to defend against me.

    I’ve already begun work on a robot which automatically blackmails you with embarrassing photographs any time it detects brainwave patterns in excess of 4 milivaders worth of evil.

    I’m not sure about that 100%. We need a larger sample size to confirm.

    The sad thing is that I was at the same stage as the woman in the cartoon (talking to my paramecia) way back in the early 1980s. Just think what mischief I can get up to now!!!! (insert evil laugh here)

    Thanks for posting this! I owe anyone who reposts my stuff.

    Whoa. Creepy. I talked to a paramecium just last week. Thursday, to be exact. Using nearly those same words, though I believe mine contained a few more profanities.

    Jen, If you don’t have an evil laugh, I suggest you cultivate one soon.

    Sorry, ALL scientists worth their weight ,mad or not, are born not made.

    I’d bet my sack on it!

    Others are just dabblers in the field of science. Whom there would still be discovery of the highest order even if they did not exist or choose to participate.

    Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Tesla, etc. were living proof. Yes Ford was a scientist in a sense. Very much so.

    Einstein needed no assistance whatsoever writing down “his own personal” theories while working alone in a patent office for minimum wage.

    TRUE scientists ,of the highest order, are born not made …
