But he—how would I say it?—doesn’t touch my soul.

You’re scaring us, George. wink

On the topic of good science communicators, I’ve liked Robert Sapolsky for a while - anyone familiar with him? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Sapolsky

His book Monkeyluv was cool, and he seems like a fun loving guy who can be serious when necessary; his appearance does fit the “weird scientist” image, though.

I don’t know why science is so dark?  But I do have 10 reasons why people hate scientists.

Also, black mamba venom is a better painkiller than morphine.  Because, well…..*shrugs*  I don’t know.
