A little light reading:

“My contention - and this is a wildly unscientific view based on  
observation, drunken conversations and gut feeling - is that the  
popular image of the scientist is based so closely on fictional  
representations of science and - in particular - on science fiction  
that the public view of science itself is becoming just a mirror of  
these fantasy creations. ...  So - stop reading this for a moment and  
find a web browser. Go to your favourite search engine and run an  
image search on "scientist"....."
