Quotes from the science blogosphere

(...) I need to start acting like a politician when I particpate in the question and answer session of a talk- i.e. if I don't like the question, I should talk about a question that I want to answer instead of the one that was asked.


I think many of us, even though we are no longer students, are used to being tested and grilled and answering questions like students. But in fact, we are under NO obligation to entertain retarded questions during talks. Fuck that shit. We are in charge of our own show, and we call the shots.
Candid Engineer in Academia, on a post on her blog entitled "Conference Questions and Getting Angry"
