a learning curve

It's the same thing that causes a baby to touch a hot stove even when they've been told over and over that it's hot and will hurt them.

Scientist have the same reaction to something new and they can't seem help playing with it even when they know it's bad and could hurt them. Unfortunately hurting "them" usually means bad for us too.

In that sense babies are quicker and better learners than scientists lol
