Even if you never make the cover of Time, there is glory in simply working to advance the human database of scientific knowledge forward, even if only by a scoche. And if you happen upon some bit of fabulously important knowledge that had previously eluded us, you may even move us forward a scoche-and-a-half. As a scientist, you may truly take pride in opening up our collective minds. Just sew them back up when you’re done, please.
