Someone will be talking about this Dean:
But you think of this Dean:
It can get really weird really fast.
Ok, this is not robotics related but it is way to important to ignore.
Some of my followers may be familiar with Vader (http://maythefoxbewithyou.tumblr.com) the pet fox who has taken Tumblr by storm. He was as friendly and well behaved as a fox could be and was loved and spoiled rotten by his owners.
A few days ago the police were given an anonymous tip that Vader bit someone. The police, instead of asking the person to file the ‘attack’ or even provide evidence of the bite, sent a cops to take the poor little fox away. The owners noted that Vader was taken by a cop (not a trained animal control officer) and handled roughly. Vader, scared by the cop, bit him in a panic (as any dog or cat would do if scared and cornered)
The owners, concerned for Vader’s well being, called the police, the department of health and the animal health board to make sure the fox was safe. They were assured that, because their was no solid evidence of the attack, Vader was simply being monitored to ensure he had no diseases.
This was a lie.
The next day the police returned to the owners house, not to return Vader, but to give the owners his collar. Vader had been euthanized, after the anonymous ‘bite victim’ had produced evidence of the bite. That evidence was only a picture, a picture that could have been Photoshoped or taken from Google.

Skill required vs. fame acquired.
I would have to disagree with all but the bottom one. All of these require different types of skill. Sure an athlete may not need much science knowledge but they will have a metric butt ton of physical skill and control, more than any scientist would. Just because an activity doesn’t involve ‘science’ doesn’t mean it take’s no skill, just a different type of skill.
