Why is it that when men win a Nobel Prize or get a patent on their own, it's
ok to claim that men get most of the prizes and awards, but when a man let's
a woman on his research team, it's all of a sudden the woman who "deserved"
No wonder men don't want women around in the lab.
Women got 4% of the patents last year, and my bet is that 95% of those
SHOULD have gone to men. Why? Because women are too far down the bell
curve to really have the intellect to do this
