Certainly could be wrong, but I think Huang is "Yellow." Does that make He "River"? If so, maybe just Huang should work.

CLinton was not impeached - it should be Nixon. They went through impeachment proceedings but was not impeached.
+9
level 77
Feb 13, 2014
Really? OK, I'll bite. "Impeachment" means to be formally brought before Congress on charges, it doesn't necessarily lead to removal from office. Johnson's impeachment ended that way, Clinton's didn't. Nixon resigned before any official impeachment could take place.
+3
level 76
Feb 13, 2014
Yes, what he said^. Nixon and his supporters believed that he was going to be impeached, and probably removed from office. He resigned in order to avoid this, and was never actually impeached.
+3
level 51
Feb 13, 2014
Bob Saget is absolutely correct, so both Johnson and Clinton were NOT removed from office and continued to serve out their terms. Nixon knew he would be convicted and thought it less disgraceful to resign than to go through the indignity of being stripped of office.

^ what are you talking about? I don't make comments not based on fact. Clinton was impeached. This is a fact. The whole affair leading up to that impeachment was a ridiculous and embarrassing waste of time and resources, but he was still impeached. and I'm not in love with Bill Clinton or anything.

You're kidding, right? Clinton served his entire second term after being impeached, then George W. Bush was elected by the states with the electoral vote even though Al Gore won the individual popular vote.

Nov 16, 2018
I don't think he's kidding. He's probably referencing the fact that the Florida recount was still ongoing at the time that the US Supreme Court, precisely along party lines, voted to end the recount, effectively choosing the president.

All of those other people weren't having lunch with them at The Eagle pub when they figured it out

level 50
Jul 20, 2014
Yeah. They actually stole the X-rays of Rosemary Elsie Franklin, which she had done all the hard work for, that showed the double helix structure of DNA. They received a Nobel Prize for work that wasn't theirs to claim. She never received a Nobel Prize because she died too soon, and because they stole her work. Better that they never received a prize.

level 76
May 24, 2016
A very simplistic view of the whole argument. 1. Crick and Watson did not steal the x-rays, as they were publicly available. Where they went wrong was in not formally asking Franklin for permission to freely interpret her work. (Watkins being a dick didn't help either.) 2. Crick and Watson built a (later confirmed to be correct) model of the structure of DNA. This goes far beyond the observation that it takes the form of a double helix. The Nobel prize was certainly theirs to claim. 3. Crick and Watson showed the model to Wilkins and Franklin before publishing. The latter both agreed it was probably correct. Franklin was subsequently invited to publish alongside Crick and Watson, and Wilkins in the issue of Nature (vol 171, no 4356).

Of course they're has to be a conspiracy ofwhich only the enlightened such as yourself are wise enough to see through. Why? Because there is always a conspiracy.

level 54
May 24, 2016
Agreed. Franklin definitely deserves a mention. To save the question, I would rephrase it to 'people who received the nobel prize for...', then it should indeed be Crick and Watson alone.

Three people received that Nobel prize: Crick, Watson and Wilkins.

The scientific name for a platypus is 'Ornithorhynchus anatinus' , Ornithorhychus literally means 'Bird Nosed' so it is a peculiar name to have in French when 'Platypus' is just as easy.

Nov 4, 2016
In the old days, Harry was the English short form for Henry. The name Henry came from French and German similar names and the English oft used Harry instead. Most of the English Kings called Henry were known as 'Harry' to the population in general. Like Ted is use for Edward and Jim for James ....... and Tom, Dick & Harry.
