    Mr’s Olsen’s response also began with the same letter!

    It must be cosmic alliteration!

    That should be good for a grant or two.

    You can fall off a six-foot ladder and not get hurt if you haven’t moved past the bottom step.

    Hmm. I am not sure if this was the intent… but I find the words of Caulfield (Jef) a bit annoying today:

    Again, I am not sure if this was the intent, but as a scientist, the last statement by Caulfiled rubbed me the wrong way….. “Research for research’s sake” is often used as a way to denigrate scientific research that does not have a clearly identifiable, immediate benefit. It is sometimes referred to as “pure” science (as opposed to “applied” science with is more immediately applicable). If the comparison of the word “aphorism” and the 45-letter aphorism phrase is going to be equated with “pure” research… then it feels like Caulfield is slamming pure research.

    But, the reality is that pure research (while it may NOT have an immediate, direct benefit) IS carefully structured, well-thought-out, and designed to discover truly new information about the natural world. And, a GREAT deal of pure research in all scientific fields has CONTRIBUTED greatly to scientific and societal advancement.

    Caulfield’s words today just grind me… because they sound much like the balderdash that a lot of anti-science folks spew all the time.
