Fun science

  • I saw this image in a yogurt ad one time. Sure gave it the ring of authority. Feel free to use this image in your own thesis or publications! You draw your own conclusions!

  • New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast on evolution. Well that clears that right up!

  • Doonesbury on Creationism.'It is to laugh' (D. Duck)

  • Lady Gaga explains about life in a biology lab and what it's like having a 'Bad Project'. The best parody vid of them all. By the Zheng lab. Tears running down my cheeks...!

  • OMG! If you've ever been the victim of a bad reviewer you'll love this vid. Herr Professor hears what Reviewer #3 has to say. Beware of some bad language...
