They don't give Nobel Prizes for being Gamal's colleague.

One of my undergrad lecturers from TCD rented a house in Cambridge from Watson as a PhD student..

I vaguely remember that Rosalind Franklin discovered DNA, essentially.

Photo 51 from Rosalind Franklin's Lab

Regarding Watson, if someone dim enough to hold views unscientific in so many ways manages to discover something, it could only be a 5 tone neon pink elephant who sat on his head and farted in his nose.

it seems the nobel committee didn't listen that carefully to bob dylan's lyrics before they gave him the nobel
Use of n-word in Bob Dylan song found not to breach NZ broadcast standards, BSA finds
so they gave him the nobel for using the n-word?
