More ToC Silliness

As usual, keep an eye on TOCROFL for similar entertainment.


In a shocking bit of news:



Go the fuck to work

From Labsolutely, in honor of Labor Day:

The windows are dark in the microscopy room,
The pumps are down to one millibar,
I’ll buy you a coffee if you swear
You’ll go the fuck to work.

The reflux went off and the reaction is almost dry,
The oil bath is on and the solid in the flask is black by now,
I know you’re not on your way.
That’s bullshit. Stop lying. Wake up, my darling,
and get your ass in the lab.

The condenser crashed and the lab is flooded,
Safety inspector whistling while looking around,
It’s been thirty-eight minutes already.
Sweet Berzelius, what the fuck? Go to work.

All the undergrads are at the fumehoods,
The postdoc is head-banging the NMR
Hell no, you can’t stop to the supermarket
You know where you can go? The fuck to work

You should go read the whole thing.



That is all.


Every time I see the word ‘cleavage’ in a scientific article referring to some action of biological cells, I just shake my head ‘no’, and say to the article, “No, I’m sorry, science, you can’t really take back that word, no matter how hard you try.

Spot on, Dante.

Risk it!


We made it. Wonder how much my “empty reserve” holds…


PhD Comics; as amazing as usual.

Also don’t forget that Jorge Cham and I have been BFFs since the 2010 Boston ACS:
