Nominative determinism 6

More from the Feedback column of New Scientist, who originally coined the term "nominative determinism".

The funniest is the official profile of one doctor: "Dr. Richard (Dick) Chopp is well known in the Austin community for performing Vasectomies."

While an article in the Journal of Neuroscience on "How fish hear and make sounds at same time" is by someone called Andrew Bass.

And there is a Reuters reporter named Elaine Lies.
