      Well I don’t do experiments personally, but friends of mine that do say the answer is definitely “NO”.

      Not always, which is frustrating. Doing science can be quite “messy”. But eventually if you do the experiment enough times or tweak it until it’s perfect, you get an answer. Not always the one you were expecting though…

      Not always no, in fact I find that quite a lot I do an experiment, then later realise that it was not really that useful to do at all. Or like at the moment I am doing something no-one has ever doen before, so I have no idea what is useful and what isn’t, so I am doing everything I can think of just incase I do need it.
