Ok, so I have to give the Paris Hilton of Physics, Caolionn O'Connell, a major shout out for successfully defending her thesis. Well done Caolionn!!!! Oh, and if you didn't want to be known as the "Paris Hilton of Physics" you should never have used the phrase in your blog! :-)
Which leads me to wonder. If I was a "celebrity of physics", who would I be?
