  • Another several hundred dudes probably.
    This shiat has been in the works longer than I've been alive, it was a pipe dream forever, much like cold fusion.
  • This dude has some pretty good evidence that he has just cause to his claims.  He didn't pop out of the woodwork this year looking to make a quick buck - he's got years of history and data backing him up where he's been fighting for recognition before COVID came up. He could be the Rosalind Franklin of this field fighting for what he deserves.

    Rosalind Franklin was the woman who actually discovered DNA and took photograph 51 but Watson and Crick got the Nobel prize and their names in the textbooks.

    I invented both genes and gumbo.
  • I invented Ivermectin therapy in order to kill off idiots.

    Someone else got a Nobel prize for other work on it's effects for a completely different problem.

    My work may be longer lasting.
  • Oh, I was hoping that email guy got covid and died. Too bad.

    Wiki says Photo 51 [was] taken by Raymond Gosling, a graduate student working under the supervision of Rosalind Franklin.

    In either case, til.

    Ehhh...

    It's pretty well recognized that Watson and Crick did the theoretical modeling while Franklin was the experimentalist.  They did very different things, and I don't think its fair to say that any of them individually discovered the structure of DNA.

    And Franklin was pretty well known.  Her main problem for posterity is that she died so young at age 37.  She almost certainly would have won the Nobel Prize in the 80s, and probably would have been the 3rd on the 1962 Nobel Prize (Watson said she should've been) had she not died in 1958.  The Nobels didn't do posthumous awards.  So the scientific community certainly recognized her pretty well at the time.

    I found this paper really useful in thinking about her contributions:

    But anyway, comparing Franklin to this Malone guy is insulting to Franklin.  Malone made some contributions in the middle of the very, very long process of working on mRNA technology.  Franklin was much more central and important to the DNA discovery process.

    Also, Malone has been spending his time recently saying that the COVID vaccines aren't safe without anything to back it up.  So that's not good.

    DNA was discovered long before she was born.

    Watson got her data without her permission. He and Crick used it, with other data, to deduce the three dimensional structure of DNA which is something she did not do. She was a co-author of a paper accompanying the Watson and Crick paper in the issue of Nature which announced the discovery. Her role has always been known by the scientific community.

    id rather be the guy who invented Jeans.

    i invented the word Invention(s).  every time its used, i get paid.

    Maybe not...

    Legend has it that the earliest versions of Levi jeans had a rivet right where the panels convened at the crotch, so when people warmed up around a campfire and then stood up...
