My roommates were watching "Finding Nemo" tonight and I overheard a really funny quote that relates to the last couple weeks of class. Nemo's school teacher, the ray, is trying to help settle a dispute between Nemo and his father. He swims over to them and says:
"Excuse me, is there anything I can do? I am a scientist, sir. Is there any problem?"
That made me laugh and I thought about our discussion of how science is often seen as objective and as the realm of the 'experts.' A nice, subtle joke on the part of the screenwriters, and if you haven't seen the movie I recommend it!
