Will they void out their paycheques for the past 100 years? I would not hold my breath.
... also return all that Nobel Prize money!! The applied sciences appear to have died with John F. Kennedy!! We've had a half century of "breakthroughs" with no apparent practical applications! We're constantly getting "physicists" claiming responsibility for the achievements of real engineers like Flash Ram and storage substrates! Like Stephen Gould calling himself an "anthropologist" after getting himself attached to a paper by Lewontin!! Gould actually managed to buffalo his way onto the front cover only after it was being prepared for publication.
I knew the wheel was going to come around again like this.
