I just sat through one of those “sales-pitch” type science talks. You know the kind: some amazing nanoshit is going to save the world and make investors a trillion dollars—nevermind if/how/why/when it works.

Anyway, my favorite part was when the title on one slide had the word “Intrasellular” by mistake. Great Freudian slip.
