A SuperHero assumes that physicality solves problems, speed and brawn.
Scientists use brains to solve and resolve, but sometimes, you can overthink or narrowly think and end up being bullied by some physical overachiever….
Over on The Love Pirate, there’s a kewl set of posts, examining this issue facing Scientists (regular or Mad) today – Public Relations and a non-scientifically literate public who are all war or peacetime war: sports.
