It's better to be a Politician than a Scientist

I note that Silvio Berlusconi has been sentenced to four years, reduced to one (thanks to a law he passed), which he'll never serve (thanks to a law he'll pass).

Meanwhile the scientists who tried to predict earthquakes and failed, get six years

Which just goes to show. If you want to get on in life and stay out of pokey, don't be a scientist. Hire some stripping housewives, commit some serial fraud and just make sure you get to be Italian President. It's certainly what my old nan told me when I was young.
