Re: [biocurious] New Meetup: Ending the Year of Citizen Science + the Future of Participative Health.

From: Patrik
Sent on: Wednesday, December 22, 2010 12:32 AM
Couple of hours late, but I figured I'd share this one with you:

Q: How many citizen scientists does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: Hang on, I'll go get a twelve-pack of light bulbs at Safeway, we'll
split up into groups of different sizes, and we'll settle this
question once and for all!

Merry winter-holiday-of-yo­ur-choice, everyone!

Patrik
