Science - Slang
|English term or phrase: crackpot|
|Same paragraph as the previous question:|
More than a few physicists, meanwhile, took to blogs to trash his idea. “A huge joke,” one called it. “Nonsense,” said another. Some reached for the ultimate scientific insult: “crackpot.”
Será que existe um insulto equivalente no meio científico brasileiro?
Mas se um pesquisador de verdade passa a ser visto como um tipo meio tantã, aí ele está perdido. Cientistas de carne e osso, ao contrário dos personagens da ficção, dependem de credibilidade social.
