If you haven’t already (and I’m willing to bet most of you haven’t) read this article about Dr. Aubrey de Grey from the October 28 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education, here it is…

“If you wish to be a prophet, first you must dress the part. No more silk ties or tasseled loafers. Instead, throw on a wrinkled T-shirt, frayed jeans, and dirty sneakers. You should appear somewhat unkempt, as if combs and showers were only for the unenlightened. When you encounter critics, as all prophets do, dismiss them as a idiots. Make sure to pepper your conversation with grandiose predictions and remind others of your genius, lest they forget. Oh, and if possible, grow a very long beard.”
