Science is sexy. And to prove it, we show you 50 sexy scientists.
No, I'm not joking. It's real, check it out:
50 Sexy Scientists
So, what do you think? Would you be flattered to be on that list?
I find it a little disturbing. Giving the scientist's looks the same merits as his/her work is like comparing pears with oranges. Or, like comparing liters with watts. In fact, I think it promotes a disturbingly negative message, which is: do I need to be beautiful to have my work noticed?
What do you think? Am I over-reacting?
