You mean your people don't do that already?  Mine do...and discuss 
politics loudly, and debate the relative merits of the Rolling Stones 
and Jimi Hendrix and that more modern rubbish, and have competitions 
involving putting out a candle with a spoon dangling from a string 
tied to the back of the belt...(not my students, those - from the 
floor below).  Oh, and making mobiles  out of dried stained 
acrylamide gels, Eppendorf vials, pipette tips and toothpicks.  And 
modelling phages on African cultural weapons...the possibilities are 
endless - and scientists / virologists is people too!
