What the Cookie Said, ii

As I have said before, I love fortune cookies.

Yesterday's fortune was:

How much deeper would the
ocean be without sponges?

That's a great fortune!

I have 2 favorite fortune cookie messages tacked up at my bench in the lab. They're so appropriate that I wonder whether the restaurants near VU are buying cookies from a company that makes them special for eateries near big biomedical research institutes:

"If at first you do succeed,
try and hide your astonishment"


"Put the data you have obtained
to good use."

Back when I was a volunteer vaccine test subject (ah... grad school, when your blood is valued more than your time), the nurse practitioner who handled my case had a framed fortune cookie slip above her desk. She had received it in college. It said, "You should consider a career in medical research."

Awesome, but did it make you nervous having your blood collected by someone who let a fortune cookie guide her life?
