Rule of Thumb on Speeches About Science

Rule of Thumb on Speeches About Science

by Dr. Hsien-Hsien Lei
Posted November 18, 2008 in DNA in General

When giving a public science lecture to a general audience, there will always be one weirdo who asks questions that have nothing to do with your lecture. There will also be one smart-aleck who asks questions to show how smart he is. The faster you silence both of them, the happier your audience will be.

Which one are you? The weirdo or the smart-aleck?
