"These two incidents remind me that I am, for better or worse, an oracle on all things life-related. People expect me to advise them about life itself. I don't know a darn thing about relationships or healthy lifestyles or communication strategies, but I can tell people how likely it is that micro-organisms flourish in the cold, dark subsurface ocean of the icy Jovian moon Europa. I can't tell you how many times I've answered the phone at three in the morning and been forced to explain the difference between RNA and DNA."
