One person asked me, after reading my science report,"where do you get your ideas from?"
"I get my ideas from an antique store situated in a little known corner of Chinatown. I have to flip through piles and piles of old Chinese manuscripts that are wrapped in dust. Once I find a good idea, I bring it back home, and translate the manuscripts into English. Finally, I analyze the writings to pick out any useful concepts that might provide insight into the kind of work I am interested in. It's a lot of work."
