The best sentences a scientist gets to say

Submitted by drupaladmin on 15 May 2011.

Some candidates:

"That's a great question, which my next slide addresses."

"The error bars are too small to be visible." (one of the benefits of being a microcosmologist is that I get to say this a fair bit)

Then there are the sentences you wish you could say, but which you will never get the chance to say. Here are a couple of mine:

"Mr. Darwin, have you considered the possibility that species might change over time as favorable variants increase in number at the expense of unfavorable variants?" (to Charles Darwin in 1835)

"Bob just called to congratulate me on my Nature cover article comprehensively solving the stability-complexity problem."

Provide your own in the comments. ;-)

Just for fun
