Hired as a new associate professor right out of graduate school, you spend some time after hours in the lab where you create your own mini nuclear reactor that accidentally fries all the lab mice.
You paint yourself with fluorescent body paint in order to get through the crowd of nuclear energy protesters outside the plant. This clears the way for you and you're able to keep your job with the power company.
Your forays into nuclear science are of historical importance. Unfortunately, when being interviewed by the press, you use the words "explosive" and "set your hair on fire" when discussing your latest discoveries.
You have discovered a new, safe way to irradiate food and rid it of diseases and toxins. You stop at McDonald's to celebrate and end up with one of your own.
You're the President's top adviser regarding nuclear energy. You keep calling the President "Homer" and are unable to squelch the Mr. Burns act.
