Scientists are like that – they can land a man on the moon, but they can’t talk to a girl. – Paul
Ne plimbam în tăcere. Nu mă deranja liniștea, but I was curious to find out whether it bothered him.
– Not at all. Not talking isn’t necessarily bad. Besides, people should say things only if it brings something new and useful to the conversation.
Ah, yes. Efficiency – the holy grail of scientists.
I took the advice and bonded with him over a 20 minute discussion on the evolution of light bulbs.
The problem is that people and relationships are everything but rational, practical, or efficient.
I tried explaining that.
– You know, people don’t really mean the things they say.
– Well, why not?
Smart. And equally annoying.
I left the conversation thinking:
How does he always know to ask the right question?
Would I ever be able to love a scientist to the moon and back?
