Science Burn of the Century

This… this is just fucking awesome. Go give this a listen. It’s everything wrong with the graduate school and doctoral thesis process. It’s everything wrong with the intelligentsia (as they exist in the university structure). During the call-in section, scientist and writer/director Valerie Weiss get’s posed a question, answers politely, gets rebutted, and then atomizes the caller while pouring herself a beverage and simultaneously lighting a cigarette. She’s cool as iced Swedish ice fish or something.
Listen (If you want to cheat, start from half-way through the clip.)
