DrugMonkey has a post on why he's a scientist, despite his -- and others' -- love/hate relationship with it. The passion for discovery and the pursuit of truth pretty much sums it up for him. He recounts one of his most vivid memories of grad school when, late one night in the lab, he was finally able to see a protein that he'd been working for months to visualize. "It was totes awesome!!!! I went running around the building trying to find someone to share the thrill with, and ended up dragging the janitor -- a buddy of mine -- into the room and forced him to look in the scope. That feeling is what we are all chasing."
C'mon, Wish Science a Happy Valentine's Day
