Sometimes, I Even Imagine They Duel

I love it when I hear a story on NPR that describes some esoteric (to the layperson, anyway) point as being a point of contention among scientists. I always get this mental image of a group of scientists in white lab coats-- they look a lot like they just stepped out of a Far Side panel-- trash talking and arguing at the top of their lungs until one of them loses it and slaps another, and then it turns into a melee, with white-coated, thick-spectacled scientists screaming things at each other like "String theory is wrong, you jerk!"
