THEY HAVE A SCIENCE DEPARTMENT AT LAWRENCE?

A graduate of Lawrence University in Appleton, Dr. Thomas Steitz has won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in the field of cellular research. Having a Nobel Prize winner from our area sort of makes you feel like maybe you could win one next year. Here\'s some signs....

SIGNS YOU\'RE PROBABLY NOT GOING TO WIN THE NOBEL PRIZE


A graduate of Lawrence University in Appleton, Dr. Thomas Steitz has won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in the field of cellular research. Having a Nobel Prize winner from our area sort of makes you feel like maybe you could win one next year. Here\'s some signs....

If you\'re listening to this show while sitting in your Spiderman Underoos and eating a bowl of Fruit Loops...and you’re at work...you\'re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If your idea of "cellular research" is Googling T-Mobile looking for sexy picture of Catherine Zeta Jones...and you’re at work…you\'re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If you think Quantum Mechanics are who you take your Hyundai Quantum to for repairs...you\'re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If your life\'s work as a scientist has been testing the effect of dipping a sleeping friend\'s hand in a bowl of warm water...you’re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If you think Thermodynamics are the high school football team from Thermo, Indiana...you\'re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If you believe Einstein\'s Theory of Relativity was E=MC Hammer...you\'re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If you don\'t think that the basic structure and function of the ribosome shows that the peptidyl transferase is an RNA catalyzed reaction...you\'re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If, like me, you have absolutely no idea what that last one meant...you\'re probably not going to win a Nobel Prize.

If the closest you\'ve ever come to creating a chemical reaction is the time you turned a six pack of Milwaukee\'s Best and a fifth of Jaeger into a puddle of sticky vomit...you\'re definitely not going to win a Nobel Prize.
