Get the latest, best machine in this episode - and learn how to talk about it to your friends! Slow dialog: 1:36 Explanations: 3:23 Fast dialog: 18:47 Oleg: Geez, look at that dinosaur. Raquel: This is not a dinosaur. It’s a classic. It will never go out of style and it’s built to last. Oleg: It’s an antique and belongs in a museum. You’ve got to get with it and get one of these. Raquel: What’s that? Oleg: It’s the latest model, with cutting edge design. It’s brand spanking new. Raquel: That’s all right. This machine is tried-and-true and it never lets me down. Oleg: Why don’t you take this for a test drive? It’ll be an eye-opening experience for you. Raquel: No, thanks. Oleg: You don’t know what you’re missing. Raquel: That’s true, but I’m happy with my machine. Oleg: Fine. I’m just trying to help you move with the times. Raquel: Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll stick with what I know and love. Oleg: It just goes to show there’s no accounting for taste. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
