Field of Science

This sounds like a great idea for a grant proposal

Mark Liberman over at Language Log proposes we should go hunt for the Hat Gene*! =D
(sums up the average humanities major's understanding of genetics quite nicely)

*In case you didn't click the link, before you lynch Liberman: he's mocking poor reporting. Intelligent humanities majors (especially in linguistics) do tend to have a decent understanding of genetics. Although the artsci cross-talk still needs a lot of work...
