I can translate it, but still don't get it.
I geddit (after a little googling) but it's far too clever and highbrow for the likes of us, and it rather dismisses the part that Messrs Watson and Wilkins played ... (does that help, Jeni?)
But stars for being such a smart-arse.
Surely this is a Neat-o for "not Cricket" and should score a duck.
'Crick et Watson' as a latin answer I was aiming for. Never a shining moment when you have to explain it though. To be fair, 'Non Crick et Watson' still works, if you want to get revisionist on the Nobel award.
Ah, not my finest moment.
Got it at last...
Some cunt just gave this a one.. So..
I met Crick. Wonderful funny man. I also spend hours interviewing Maurice Wilkins. A real sweetie – strangely religious. Something to do with being on the Manhattan Project? Always suspected he secretly fancied Rosalind.
The most fascinating of the ones I came across is Aaron Klug. Someone really should add him to your 'death list' in the Chat Room..
Big five for the ticker.. May it win..
