There is a microwave downstairs from where I work. Some researcher has taped a sign on it that reads:
FOOD ONLY — NO CHEMICALS
I love scientists.
Also, I read the Wikipedia article on kurtosis today (it’s pretty boring, I just put the link here so you can fact check me), and it includes what may be the single most pedantic and self-aggrandizing sentence I’ve ever seen:
“The far red light has no effect on the average speed of the gravitropic reaction in wheat coleoptiles, but it changes kurtosis from platykurtic to leptokurtic”
I love-hate the internet.
