What black pants, that are light, did you switch from Tommy Bahama silk?

Agreed on role of presentations

Someone once told me that a major key to success is "who knows what you know."  It's not enough to know it (or do it) -- others have to know you know it and have done it.  Presentations are a key way to do that.

In talking to students, one comment I've often made is that I (mistakenly) went into science partly because I hated English class.  Admittedly, most of the reason is that I love science.  However, the top drawers of scientists are mostly good writers and good presenters (at least in comparison to the competition ;-) ).
