    And you don't think coming up with better methods is a sign of intelligence?
    Sign of intelligence =/= More intelligent than Florence.

    Yeah, it's the classic book smarts vs Street smarts dynamic. Both are useful in their respective places.

    That would be impressive, but I don't think Gregor is subject to that restriction as he decided to stay with Tess and not to go back.

    Hey now, the good thing with GMOs is that you don't have to adapt to them, you adapt them to you!

    And again Gregor sounds like a man of wisdom. They're starting to remind me of a series from the 90's, where a hippie married a lawyer for...well, for plot.

    There were a lot of those quirky series and movies based around a single-sentence idea. And that sentence was often: "One's an X. One's a Y. Together, they Z" That's actually three sentences, but very short ones.

    I'm starting to see how these two make their marriage work despite being polar opposites. They play well off each other.

    And Sam is continuing to scope out the situation. I wonder if he'll also bill the station for consulting on their security system.

    Just to reassure you that you got the physics right--realistically, yes. She would know which way it was spinning. This being her first-or-so day there, she might not get the 'how much do I need to correct for this' factor right and still spill, but this would not be a mistake she would likely make. Either Rockphed is right about groggy early morning mistake, or it's just because it's funnier this way.

    Nothing in his characterization indicated that he would. He is very reserved but does not say outright no to anything - he just wants to cautiously collect relevant data before making a decision. Above all else he respects Florence far more than his wife does.
