Science is not for wimps (but regular readers already knew this). There are dangers lurking everywhere, even surrounding the lab. I urge all scientists and wannabes out there to watch this video and take notes.
Shameful. But Brian is a physicist, not an astronomer (though he later redeems himself). I would have grabbed the snakes and spiders, thrown them in the back of the cart, then headed on over to New Orleans to get them made into a po' boy sandwich with mayo and a side of red beans. Yum!
Brian will be here in Boulder in April for a meeting. I better not tell him about the rattlesnakes and coyotes.
