This is one of four images illustrating how a "too slow" is inflicted while faking a high five.
On the right, the victim of said "too slow"
On the left, one who won't be getting much tail, if at all, in the coming days, and will probably sleep on the couch
Barry Marshall obtained the Nobel Prize for medicine in 2005. The badassery lies where, exactly?
Simple: until thirty years ago (that's 1982), the scientific community believed stomach ulcers were solely caused by stress, spicy food, or too much acid. Barry Marshall - along with Robin Warren - investigated the role of Helicobacter pylori in stomach ulcer.
Their findings were ridiculed, saying that "wtf no bacteria can survive in such an acidic environment lol you suck" 
1984. Barry Marshall tries to infect piglets with the bacteria, unsuccessfully. Any normal person would have given up. But SCIENCE compelled him, and he ate a petri dish of the bacteria (no reports of side dishes (heh) survive), after having a baseline exam done. He expected to have to wait a few weeks for the symptoms to kick in, but after three days he started feeling the typical sensations of ulcer.
Amid cries of victory and/or pain, and having taken the name of $DEITY in vain more than you can possibly imagine, he began treatment with antibiotics, successfully.
Rumour has it that he had to find an enormous amount of self-control to avoid publishing the article with a picture of his massive cojones, possibly accompanied by an obscene caption, involving creating a vacuum, directed to the scientific community.
Flawless victory pls
Going to Punat for a few days. No clue about internets over there, so see you all Monday at worst! :D
(well, at worst, technically, we will never come back, so it's not quite "at worst", more like "at semi-worst")
