re: Nobel Winner Motivation TOTD
So it appears that Dr. used the last 26 years improving their resesrch, possibly based on the attached notes... or are we saying 27 year old research made 0 improvements?

Also room 420

August of 1992. That's a long time of motivation.
I'm impressed. I'd be even more if I knew whatever it was that he was motivated about

i imagine it's a bit of both. if you are a true trailblazer, which he apparently is, the paradigms and algorithms of contemporary bureaucracy will stifle you. science is a large bureaucracy who wants you to check the boxes it finds necessary while being judged by potential competition who holds the power to silence you.

Read the letter. It isn’t that they didn’t find his research probative but rather that they felt it wasn’t a good fit for their publication. He probably would have gotten the same response from Sports Illustrated.

More info?

Nature is a highly reputable journal, but if this was merely a medical oriented study, Scruffy agrees with you.

Wait, so you're not a peer reviewed attorney? I actually saw a friend post an article a couple years back, dealing with hand washing with soap vs antibacterial soap. It was literally my 7th grade science project, from 1993, but apparently I didn't submit it for review I instantly felt slightly jaded, so I appreciate this man's drive. And for bonus points, all my findings were backed up in the 2nd study.

Short of medicine, I'm totally unaware of what this guy did... anyone want to save me from web searching and cliff note his scope of research?

re: Nobel Winner Motivation TOTD
Great motivation for the weekend, thanks for the find. However, I know one thing for sure, no matter how much motivation for a weekend, I think it is safe to say I will never have Nobel Prize winner by name.

This story reminds me of Einstein’s theory of Relativity. He was rejected numerous times by academics and called disorganized. The telescope used to check calculations, due to conditions of astronomy, could only be checked every four years-he failed the first two times. Logistically, the entire pursuit was a nightmare. Not to mention, his marriage failed, his kids moved, and most in the upper echelons of Academia thought his theory was not relative. After years, he found the simple mistake he had made that was overlooked for three years. This time everything lined up, and we now owe a good part of our satellite technology to his theory.
