Slightly Irritated Scientist

You know, you hear about mad scientists all the time. But the lesser-known, slightly irritated scientists of the world sometimes get pushed to the back burner. These underappreciated laborers deserve attention, too. Where are the movies about them? Where are the novels and comic books that herald their achievements? They have complaints and issues, too. In fact, they relate to us more than the mad scientists. How many times have you been mad, really mad this week? Now, how many times have you been slightly irritated? Chances are it takes you all ten fingers to count the slight irritations. And that's just today! Think about that the next time you watch a movie about mad scientists and their insane creations, and take a moment to honor those who live life outside the spotlight. Thanks!
