Obama got his for doing nothing.  I can do that.  Where's my prize?

Maybe someone can buy it and give it to this woman's family:

Of course, the biggest issue was Watson claiming that it was all his and Cricks ideas, and those dum girlz would never be smart enough to do this sciency stuff.  He whined that she was no good at dressing sexy for him.

So, when W/C had brain blocks the the size of the Enterprise, she took a look at her x-rays, noticed that the diffraction pattern was caused by a helix, her adviser took that info and the photographs from her desk, showed it to W/C, at which point they started to claim that they came up with the Helix idea right from the start.

So maybe she couldn't have had the prize because of her untimely death, but maybe she could have been given the credit for the actual discovery, which she wasn't until long after the fact.

Still think it's funny that we don't take the nobel peace prize with an air of irony, nobel's whole dynamite thing considered

//here's a hint- no one ever actually ushered in peace by trying to speed up war. What it usually does is simply make war more deadly.

Dunno, but the guy's kids must either be really hurting for money, or real idiots/jerks to not appreciate the significance of the work and either hold onto it for posterity or put it in a museum somewhere.

Hopefully, whoever ends up with it  will put it in a museum somewhere.
