Thing to do: Visit Richard Heck’s grave

Richard Heck 1931-2015 image from nobelprize.org

I dunno. I just feel like I need to visit his grave. Pray for him. Say sorry. I feel like I should apologize or something. Man, a Nobel Prize winner, rejected admission to a hospital because of unpaid bills! There is something seriously wrong there.

as a (pretend) scientist (i honestly don’t consider myself one yet. maybe not ever.), i feel disturbed that i might be like him in the future. he, despite having made such a great discovery, grew old poor and alone. and then there’s myself — a trying-hard nobody in science.

Rest In Peace good sir. Rest well.
