Step 1: Complete disbelief that this data can possibly be correct (oh that method was used to get the results...)
Step 2: Trepidation at the joy that potential insights from the new data seems to provide (could it possibly be right?)
Step 3: Sheer delight at the magnitude of nature's diabolical schemes (it is right!)
Step 4: Convincing cynical reviewers that you are right (no...Joe did NOT show this...)
Step 5: Fending off underhanded attacks from Joe and company for the rest of your life....
.....all for the love of Science...

The PI Blog
This blog exists because my wife seemed a bit tired of being the only recipient of my random pontifications on life and Science for many years; and gently encouraged me to vent in a blog instead. From time to time, I put down thoughts that occur to me as I naiively stumble through a life in Science - bestowed upon me by accident (literally!). Please keep in mind that these musings are rather obvious things of little or no use to anyone, and are certainly not personally targeted in any way, even though they are obviously derived from my experiences. OK, enough said.
