Its not every day that you get a phone call from a nice man who wants to sell you a $600K instrument for a fraction of that price, but that’s what happened to me yesterday. Because my Head of Research is a very, very nice man and a damn good scientist he didn’t laugh me out of the room when I casually dropped by to mention it. So I better get off Tumblr and work on the 200 or so words he asked me to write selling the idea to the Dean!
