I keep thinking I'll write a post about our NCT classes and how the people we met were invaluable but the stuff we were taught was, especially if you're a scientist, rather questionable at times. As a colleague of mine put it "the NCT - the most expensive group of friends you'll every buy".
Fortunately, it seems Dara O'Briain has saved me the time in actually writing this down and done a much better job and with much more humor, on one of his tours (BTW he also has a science degree).
If you've ever been to these classes or wondered what goes on at them - enjoy:
PS. Many thanks to Gemma for sending this to me
