Wow. I just had an incredible revelation watching Mr. Wizard.
The scientific community has a political system of it's own, ideas are crushed because the mainstream disagrees with them. Mr. Wizard took the best
and the brightest kids and explained scientific topics and theories to them. He was, essensially, testing his theories on a blank slate. Someone who
didn't care what Dr. X and Dr. y thought, because she/he didn't know Drs. x and y existed. So not only was Mr. Wizard helping us gain a passion for
science, and explaining topics in a way the average joe blow could understand, he was also helping himself by listening to the ideas that kids got
after being explained a basic principal. Groovy! (He's still on, by the way)
