In other words, guys like this should be receiving a bit of the gajillions of dollars their scientific insights bring in real-world applications and markets. And tail. Lots and lots of tail.
If the true movers and shakers of the world actually benefited from their contributions, what would the other 95% of the population do for a living? Have to actually contribute to humanity for once?!

And who would feed these "movers and shakers"?

The worlds a tiny little bit more complicated than the confines of your playpen.

Robots? I know there's still people who work at coffee shops in Star Trek but we definitely need to get our priorities in order when we're paying sports players millions of dollars and teachers can barely afford their mortgage.

Are you saying that 95% of the world population is made up of lady gagas and the like?

Interesting.

I always thought of electron "spin" being an antiquated term that arose from a lack of explanation during the onset of quantum mechanics. I thought it was always clear that electrons do not actually spin, but possess qualities that imply if it were a more massive particle, that it would spin (like a moving charged particle generating a magnetic field, having angular momentum, etc.).

After reading the article, it doesn't explain WHY or HOW an electron has spin, it only explains how the property of graphene effects the spin of electrons in its lattice--unless I missed something? I mean, mathematically, as was stated, it doesn't explain that if an electron does, indeed, rotate (I think that's still debatable), how it can do so when its rotational velocity would be faster than the speed of light?

I think the problem comes down to decoupling "classical" understanding/concepts of physical phenomena from quantum mechanics. It's very difficult--if not impossible at times--to conceptually understand quantum mechanics from a classical mechanics conceptual basis.

Pretty much. That percent is not represented on here of course though.
