It doesn't matter if you're a scientist or a bra-fitter, Lord Kelvin was right:

"I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of Science, whatever the matter may be."

~Lord Kelvin

  2. That's a hilarious photo set, LL. I'll bet that job has a certain qualification--NTTARWT,
