Stuff Scientists Say

January 19, 2012 at 3:34 pm Leave a comment

There’s a crazy trend going around YouTube these days called “Stuff (only another word is used) that (fill in the blank) say.” Many of these videos are a tremendous waste of time. Unfortunately, scientists are not immune from engaging in such frivolous, time-wasting behaviour. In the following parody, a group of “scientists” (if they really are scientist…we’ll never know), produced a video with a collection of statements that scientists say. While I am hesitant whether or not to post this video on our blog, as of this posting, it has been viewed over 37,000 times and it seems as though some of the statements actually resonated with a genuine scientific audience. One viewer left the following comment:

A parody, you say? I hear these every day. My PI excused himself to ‘do some grant writing’ during a conference. We found him at the condo watching UFC wrestling.

The statement that I identify with the most is “in conclusion, more research is required.”

What about you?
