Nobel Prize for Medicine. or coffee rules !

From the NYT:
American researchers Richard Axel and Linda B. Buck shared the 2004 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine on Monday for their work on the sense of smell -- showing how, for example, a person can smell a lilac in the spring and recall it in the winter
But this is the best quote:

Told of his honor, Axel told Swedish public radio: "That's really marvelous, I'm so honored."

[... snip ...]

Asked what he would do first, he replied: "I'm going to have a cup of coffee."

Amen to that....
