Scientists

MARINE ROCKET opines and questions:

Yet how many times do you read a story or hear a report where the phrase "scientists say" is used to give credence to the latest fad? (And it's always plural. Do scientists run around in great thundering herds on the plains, never talking alone lest they be considered mad by their herd mates?)

Some scientists run in thundering herds on the plains.  But the best scientists stalk that herd, preying on the weak and infirm.  In this way the herd is actually strengthened and the average speed of the herd increases.  See the Beer Theory of Brain Speed (or the "Buffalo Theory" though it should be the "Bison Theory").
