Count me as surprised…

And that award also marks the only interaction I\’ve ever had with a Nobel prize winner. Admittedly only a few emails talking about kidney allocations but a first for me all the same.

  1. “And that award also marks the only interaction I’ve ever had with a Nobel prize winner.”

    Oi. Do you mind? I’m one of the joint winners of the 2012 Peace Prize…

  2. That’s what comes of living in the arse end of nowhere. I’ve met numerous Nobel laureates. Usually I’ve remembered to remove myself from their presence after drinking copious glasses of vino.

  3. I once had a research project stolen lock, stock and barrel by a Nobel laureate (rather, by people in his lab). Took my idea, grant, and got it funded with his name on it but didn’t give me the job of doing it. No wonder he made it in academia.
