Yes, exactly. When a Nobel Prize winning scientist announces a
revolutionary discovery in Nature or Science I am interested, very
interested indeed; when a similar announcement is made by Henry J
Bumblefuck in the National Inquirer I am somewhat less interested, if
truth be told I donít consider it worth 10 seconds of my time.
