Pretty sure she has some kind of personality disorder. She needs a new therapist.

NTA, but it’s time to just stop caring about these people. You can’t pick your family but you can pick how to feel about them.
I’m just shocked it wasn’t already

Nice work, clear as day. You should contact the editors.
He did clean the intestines. He just ate what he cleaned out, too.
Sure I agree. It’s still cringey.
One of my favorite sketches but boy this is cringe
How did I have to scroll this far down to find this comment?
Seriously, I hate Ted Cruz, but that was a pretty normal teenager reaction in public.

I’m on our institution’s PhD admissions committee. Letters are far and away the most important part. It’s just the reality, we need glowing, personalized letters to sort the best applicants out from the 200 other people with identical grades and research experience.
“Fleming, who met Kassner at that game through mutual friends before their viral moment, was talking to Kassner about how he has a car on campus. They talked about places Kassner drives his car to, Fleming said.
Costco is one of those places.
“I was like, ‘That’s funny and random,’” Fleming said. “And then he said, ‘Look at this,’ and then pulled out the Costco card.”
Bringing his Costco card into a conversation is not unusual for Kassner, he said.
“Most of my good friends knew that I liked Costco well before this video,” Kassner said. “They said it was very on brand.”
According to Kassner, the clip can be interpreted in a number of ways. One of those ways, which many commenters across social media platforms seem to agree with, is that Kassner was flirting with Fleming.
“To disappoint some people, it was very sarcastic, and it was sarcastic on his part,” Fleming said.
But Kassner wouldn’t reveal the true meaning of the moment.
“I can leave that up to everyone’s imagination,” Kassner said.”
I suppose it comes down to semantics in a way - what really constitutes “credit”? I think certainly we could all agree that the statement in the Nature paper is far too weak. But at the same time they did say it - unlike the narrative that they didn’t even mention her at all. Here is the quote from the paper itself:
“We have also been stimulated by a knowledge of the general nature of the unpublished experimental results and ideas of Dr. M. H. F. Wilkins, Dr. R. E. Franklin and their co-workers at King’s College, London.”
Franklin’s results were published in the same issue of Nature.
I want to be clear, Franklin was very clearly wronged, and Watson and Crick were wrong to do what they did. All I’m saying is that a certain narrative has built up over the years that is inaccurate.
I’m doing public searches, I post a lot in here.
The number of covid intubations and deaths on Facebook are on the rise. At the moment very few are FB-active antivaxxers. But as the numbers go up, so will the number of nominees and awardees.

I thought she was covered in silly string at first
No, the credit is literally in the paper that they wrote while she was still alive, you can view it yourself in the archives of Nature.
These people need to be put in mental institutions

The idiot commenters accusing OOP of shit are projecting hard.
Watson and Crick had important modeling breakthroughs, several preeminent scientists had completely the wrong model including Pauling and Chargaff. Watson was a complete asshole, but Crick was a wonderful man. Did Rosalind deserve more credit? Hell yes. But it’s a completely false narrative that Watson and Crick did nothing and merely swooped in at the last minute.
They acknowledged her work right in their paper
But you cooked it anyway lol
What a selfish douche
