My psych professor started talking about controversy in the language acquisition sector, particularly between "Skinner and Chomsky". I started grinning, a lot. Knowing that Noam is an MIT linguist, I raised my hand, "Is that Noam Chomsky?" She got all apologetic, "Yes, it is, but I don't know anything about his politics."

I heard much confusion from the rest of the class about who in the hell this is. It made me grin a lot.
