Dude, it's like you started a lecture series on semiconductors,
then took sebatical for six years to snort coke in the Andes,
then you come back to the lecture hall and start shouting at
everyone for not worshipping your Royal Gayness while the rest
of the geeks went on to build a quantum computer.  What do you
expect?  Even if you did start the group, you're not likely to
regain your popularity by telling everyone that they're not as
cool as you.

Has anyone ever seen Britney Spears' guide to semiconductor
physics?  Check it out for a (better) laugh:
