Hey, Dudes Isn’t that What’s-his-name?

Thomson Scientific hosted a party tonight at Madame Tussauds’ famous wax museum on Baker Street.

Standing among the wax figures, who appeared quite lifelike at first blush, it was sometimes difficult to tell the guests from the statuary.

Here David Hoole, Nature Publishing, and Matthew Cockerill, BioMed Central found themselves in the company of Nicholas Cage.

Leaving the museum I exchanged words with a gentlemen in the elevator who observed, “at first the dummies looked real. Later it was the people who started to look artificial. But that’s what good art is.”

“Real art,” he said, “is supposed to make you change your perspective. And this did.”

Hats off to Thomson Scientific for selecting a most unusual and unforgettable party venue.
