科学家的幽默

前几天在Salk开了个会,一度有五个诺贝尔奖欢聚一堂的盛景,是我从来没经历过的,在Caltech没有过,在Princeton也没有过。

而今天想说的不是这些诺贝尔的八卦,而是一个talk里的一小幕。讲这个talk的教授叫Larry Young,是做animal behavior的。他做的两种小老鼠很不相同,一种喜欢老婆孩子热炕头的腻在一起,从一而终,也不找新欢;而另一种只喜欢独居,一夜情不断,也不找个终身伴侣。更有趣的是,两种小老鼠基因非常相像,极小的差距造成生活习惯上如此不同引起Larry的兴趣。他通过各种基因,蛋白,信号通路的手段找出造成这种差距的原因,最终运用转基因手段能使独居老鼠变得顾家,或者反之。

最后一张slice是一个Larry自己做的“电视广告”,上面是一张一对年轻情侣很开心的图片,大字写着:用情专一喷雾剂,only $99.99。而如果你注意的话,后面还有一串小字:Antagonist (抑制剂): $499.99 ……

  1. oh, how much i love this!

  2. 挂一挂诺奖人士也行呀:)

  3. 哈哈,太好玩啦.

  4. 抑制剂为啥贵那么多呢?
    是工艺考虑还是市场考虑?

  5. 哈哈,牛。。。

  6. 我觉得这个主要看老婆够不够hot…

  7. to jiner: 当然是市场考虑。 也许翻译得不好,Antagonist 或许应该翻译成“解药”?

  8. Science decodes ‘animal’ behavior; then money controls the application of science.
    Thus, money is the God of physical world and behavioral world.
    Maybe, we guys should make money instead of making love. …:(

  9. don’t be so negative, Joke. Larry is trying to be ironic to this commertial world 🙂

  10. hehe, 牛啊,有意思
     

  11. the nicest story that I’ve heard today!

  12. It is difficult to find the genes which determine the behavior of love,for human behavior is also determined by the factors in environment
