go punk! @ 02:46 am

Current Mood: pleased pleased

No, this still isn't the squid sex dream post, nor the what it means to be a high-functioning autistic person post... this is the 'go punk rock!' one.

This article is a little too fawning over the guy's attire, but the gist is 'punk prof wins €1.25M science award for mitochondrial DNA research'. They don't include pictures, but you can see what he looks like here and here. To quote him:
And as for the general issue of why I dress like a punk, it's a non-question. Punks are rebels and scientists are rebels. So this fits perfectly.
I can only hope to be that cool/successful when I'm 49.
