18 Things Scientists Have Done At Least Once

That moment when you try to CTRL + F your paper lab book.

1. Accidentally called something by its scientific name in ~the real world~.

TFW you can't find iron supplements at the store because you are looking for Fe. #scientistproblems

4. Stored food in a lab fridge/freezer.

5. Pretended to have read a paper when they actually just skimmed the abstract.

It's where all the important information is supposed to be, anyway.

6. "Borrowed" lab equipment for household use.

7. Tried to CTRL + F to find something on a printed page.

I wish I could just hit Ctrl + F. 😕


10. Spent longer making a figure for their thesis than it took to do the actual experiment.

Big decision of the night; I have chosen a Braggs law figure for the thesis. #realtimechem #mustbeperfect #perfect-ish


16. Turned up the music and danced around the lab when nobody else was there.

I have DEFINITELY not been dancing in the lab all day to @jtimberlake's new song. Nope, totally not me.
