Cassandra, Sabine and Lubos

Cassandra always told the truth, but nobody believed her. That was her destiny.

Sabine is a well-known blogger and researcher in quantum gravity. She tells the truth and people believe her. That is her destiny. She recalls that string theory is wrong and that supersymmetry is wrong. Who gets upset? Nobody of importance. The most upset person is a funny little man who has given up working on the field. Why did he give up?

Lubos has given up on string theory because he does not believe in it himself. Now he insults women to hide his own mistakes and lack of intelligence. To hide his own lack of motivation. And to hide his failure.

Lubos is the Czech word for Looser. We women know how to handle such men: we smile at them and turn away.
