Page 3 Scientist ?

It was a surprise for me to read this about Faraday. Till now I had a prejudice that all scientists are media shy and shun publicity. I am going to change that from now on.


Faraday was “well aware that pictures could provide powerful propaganda” In portraits for books, newspapers and portrait cards he adopted seemingly nonchalant poses that would make him look like a solid, honest and practical person to whom genius came easily.

That brings to my question why Page 3 persons are generally considered dumb ?

    I am worried that these Page 3 persons are the ones who are driving the Indian mainstream media. Be it newspapers, television channels or any other. The Indian media is dumbing down and I do not like it. Somebody should put an end to this degradation.

    Page 3 persons are generally considered dumb because generally they are not scientists, or engineers or any other type of intellectual!

    Actually Karthi, the pic is intended to be creative art. No one actually clicks on the link. Ive linked the pic to the original page. But you are very observant, no one else replied to the originality of the pic.

    //Einstein was very media shy, he had so much in his life that made him very embarrased that he cant do anything proper. But funny, hes the most fdamous sceintist ever after newton.
