Jenner, originally uploaded by julesberry2001.

Jenner's paper didn't get accepted first time around, but according to Wikipedia, he was undeterred, did more work, and got it accepted a year later. And so now we are all not dead from smallpox. hurrah.

But that story is just by the way. The reason I took the photo was because the phoning woman's posture reflects that of the statue.

Yeah but was he just asked to do more work or was he told that the paradigm he was testing was sufficiently implausible as to be a priori grounds for rejection irrespective of his results?

Jenner has better legs. Plus he doesn't look bitter :-)
