How (not) to communicate new scientific information

Some one has sent me this link: Laurence Klotz. How (not) to communicate new scientific information BJU International 2005; 96: 956-957.

 BJU International

Maybe they think I need to write the Blog in a different way.  However, I will not have my pants round my ankles:-).


  1. The author is quite admiring of the communication method.

    On a different note, perhaps Prof David Baker will someday be counted in 'the pantheon of British eccentrics who have made spectacular contributions to science'

  2. Fabulous, should be more of it - a 'hands-on' lecturing style guaranteed to retain attention, not entirely sure of what message exactly though. Something to consider when lecturing to Gen Y who have seven second attention spans.

  3. I was at the Institute of Psychiatry when Giles Brindley was there. He was a true legend. The walls of his office were covered with pictures of children that were sired as a result of his research.
    You wouldn't believe some of the pictures we found clearing out his old lab!
    Those were the days!

  4. Thank you for sharing this gem. Hilarious.
