When you work in nanotechnology - the science of engineering the very small - it helps to have a sense of humour. It especially helps when lay people ask you about the tiny robots you're supposed to be building - or whether they could be used to turn meek scientists into rampaging green man-mountains, like in the Hulk movie.
