Dr. James Watson is a Nut

You know that he and Francis Crick discovered DNA, but did you know that this particular scientist is a "mad scientist"? mwa ha ha ha ha...

London's Science Museum canceled a talk by Nobel Prize-winning geneticist James Watson after the Long Island-based scientist told a newspaper that Africans and Europeans had different levels of intelligence.
...

He was quoted in the Oct. 14 issue of The Sunday Times saying he feels "inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa" since "all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really."
Oh but wait, perhaps he's being more madcap than mad: perhaps the James Watson stand-up routine is just heating up:

In 2000, he told an audience at the University of California at Berkeley that there is a correlation between skin pigmentation and sex drive, saying melanin content increases sex drive.
...
"That's why you have Latin lovers. You've never heard of an English lover. Only an English patient."
...
He has also reportedly said women should be allowed to abort their unborn children if tests could determine that they would be homosexuals.
Outrageous! He should do a guest appearance on Sarah Silverman!
