So What Do They Want To Hear?
One student has started asking what he calls “Miss America Questions” to everyone in lab. Last week’s question was: If you were a fish, what fish would you be? Predictably, a lot of people answered, “Shark.” This week, the question is: What would be your perfect vacation?
Various answers from other lab members:
Visiting all the Greek islands1
Some place with a temperate climate with water nearby2
Touring Africa while giving out Bibles and anti-malarial tablets3
Any place where they speak Spanish4
South Africa, taking care of penguins6
