Comment 4 by DeepFritz :

I get a feeling that science won't become sexy unless there is big dollar careers to be made out of it.

Scientists should start holding the world to ransom and ensure that the purveyors of the dismal sciences (economics, accounting, law) experience horrible diseases until funding is restored to a level where everyone WANTS to do science...

^^^ This.

Why is science not lucrative? It's the most useful thing in the universe, yet the average scientist makes less than the average professional bowler, it's mind bogglingly stupid.

Ahhh, yes. Stupid religious people control everything.... Why again? How have scientists, being so smart, not usurped the reigns?

We're waiting...
