Or so the guy on the Nova special told me.
Compared to what, I wonder. The other worlds this fellow has lived in?
UPDATE: Oh my God. I watched about two minutes of the show, which is called Hunting the Elements. I hadn't thought about chemistry in a while, I thought it might be interesting to delve into it for a bit. But apparently Nova thought that having some whiny, sniveling idiot named David Pogue make stupid jokes throughout the show would make science more interesting. He was completely unbearable, however interesting the subject matter was.
UPDATE II: By the way, I am sure David Pogue is not really an idiot. The point is, rather, that he thinks we will like science better if he acts like a complete idiot while someone else explains science.
