"The log from the Sea of Cortez, the famous American author, John Steinbeck recounted the description his dear friend Doc, a fish biologist, gave of his father, who was also a biologist: Doc stated, He is always wrong. If a man makes a million decisions and judgments at random, it is perhaps mathematically tenable to suppose that he will be right half the time and wrong half the time. But you take my father- he is wrong all the time about everything. That is not a matter of luck but of selection. That requires genius.(Steinbeck 195. The degree to which Docs fathers powers are attributable to being a fish biologist is something we fish biologists might ponder."
