Seriously, it kills me when I see people hold scientists up as pinnacles of logic and reason.

Because one time the professor I was interning for got punched in the face by another professor, because mine got the funding, and told the other professor his theory was stupid.

This same professor told me to throw rocks to scare the “stupid fucking crabs” into moving so we could count them properly.

SCIENCE

thank you

this is one of the best comments this post has recieved

I have witnessed:

Two professors hiding around a corner and snickering, “Shhh, here she comes!” While a female professor approached and, when she finally found them, she proceeded to scream while pointing from one to the other, “You! I called your office but you weren’t there! So I tried to call YOUR office to figure out where HE was but YOU weren’t there!”

Two grad students standing outside a closed and locked door yelling, “Come out of the damn office. You haven’t left for days. If you didn’t have a couch in there I’d be concerned as to where you were sleeping!”

A religious studies professor apologizing for being late to class because, “security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit”

Watched a professor snort the results of my experiment to determine if I had the right final compound.

Two archeology professors toss priceless fossilized teeth back and forth in an attempt to figure out who is smarter by “guessing the type of tooth and species of animal before it lands”

Multiple fully degreed individuals throw dry ice at one another in an attempt to be first to use the lab/get that piece of equipment/or change the iPod song.

A genetics professor build furniture out of stacks of paper and planks of wood because she is that far behind in grading papers/responding. One of the impromptu furniture pieces housed a fish tank.

I could go on but I think that covers the larger portion of the insanity…

Every time it comes around on my dash, it gets better.

I have had a professor buy a huge fuckoff bottle of rum during fieldwork in Costa Rica and let the undergrads get wasted because “you’re not underage in Costa Rica and we’ll be up all night with the bats anyway!”

- Same professor hung a bat from her headlamp and wore it as a decoration for an entire night. 

- A whole swarm of older women - and these are women with PhDs and world-renown bat experts, the bigwigs - all, to a woman, go to the formal charity dinner at an international research symposium in Toronto in late October dressed in skimpy Batgirl costumes. Because Halloween was that weekend, you see.

- At a different conference, a professor get blackout drunk and pass out on the side of the road. 

- “Yeah, we have to say we did it properly for the grant but to be really honest, Miracle-gro works better.”

- Teaching lab: we had liquid nitrogen for a demo, and after class the professor, the other TA, and I spent a good two hours freezing and breaking things in it. 

a chemistry class begins with 30 students nine months later just six of us left sitting on tables dipping paper into contaminated chemicals to see what happens when we burn it teacher making idle suggestions while he marks our work

"go to the fume hood thing, yeah now put some potassium in chlorine" can i burn the results sir? "fuck it sure whatever its tainted anyway"

The prof I’m working for just asked me if I knew how to pick a lock, and when I responded “yes” she replied, “see, this is why I hire the former delinquents instead of the suck-ups. You’re actually useful.”

I then let her into her office.

switzerland is my favorite part of europe youve got this bullshit triple entente shit to your left and the entire goddamn triple alliance to your right and youre sitting there just outside the battlefield switzerland does not have time for your world war 1 crap switzerland is strong

They avoided getting involved with their natural mountain defenses and the fact that, well
A HUGE PORTION of their populous had rifle training with the possible estimate of every household in the country owning a rifle, meaning that despite its relatively small official army, every citizen had the ability to defend themselves and the training to do it with.
When the Kaiser of Germany in World War I, during a demonstration of military maneuvers, asked a guest of the Swiss government what their 500,000 strong Swiss army could do against a 1,000,000 man Germany army
The guest promptly replied
"Shoot twice and go home"
To demonstrate how fucking crazy awesome Switzerland is, they also apparently have 300,000 detonation points across the country so that in the case that they do get invaded they can cripple infrastructure to prevent their enemies from using it.

i fear switzerland

We need a sci-fi or dystopian story where Switzerland takes over the world.

Since the 1960s, it has been law to have enough nuclear fallout shelters for the entire population. It’s estimated there are enough nuclear fallout shelters for 110% of the population. The likelihood of a sci-fi/dystopian post-apocalyptic future of switzerland taking over the world… well they’ll be alive.
