A story from Richard Wilson

Like most physicists of his era Pief understood the effectsof radiation on people. While walking past the technicians having coffee at the Mark III accelerator in 1952, Pief was asked: "does radiation cause infertility?" As a man with 4, shortly to be 5 children, Pief replied promtly: "Don't count on it."
