As children we are continually encouraged to remain curious. Parents and educators alike foster our
creativity and our curiosity and push us to never stop seeking answers. As we become adults we have college professors and employers who continue to reward curiosity and who suggest incredible advancement is science and medicine are due to nothing other than human curiosity.   We hear positive terms like “visionary” and “inquisitive” attached to those who are naturally curious, and we are taught that asking questions is important.

Then one day you decide to observe a liver transplant procedure and suddenly the only questions being asked are “where did you get that lab coat” or “how did you get past security” and people start tossing around words like “fanatic” or “felony”...  suddenly it becomes obvious that maybe curiosity isn't such a big deal after all.
