Loved this snippet:
In science, there is always an experiment to be performed, an unexpected result to troubleshoot, a poster to prepare, a conference to attend, newly published research to read, old research to brush up on, a minus 80 to de-ice, primers to borrow, a protocol to overhaul, a technician to train, a bench to disinfect, equipment to order, reagents to prepare, glassware to clean, and malfunctioning computers to turn off and on again. And, of course, there’s never a time when a scientist can’t be thinking about his or her research. Often, this thinking permeates through scientists’ entire lives — not because they’re required to, but because they’re driven to. By curiosity, by pride, by the challenge of pushing knowledge forward. Scientists are workaholics. Caffeine-addiction likely fuels their work-addiction.
It is an article on which professions drink most coffee and Scientists and Lab Technicians top the list.
I am surprised that programmers did not figure high on the list!
