Should Scientists Really be THIS Honest?

September 2, 2014 at 4:51 pm Leave a comment

I found a great post while surfing around called Scientists explain their processes with a little too much honesty [17 pictures]. The post is a compilation of some fantastic quotes from scientists letting you know what, politically incorrect, thought they are actually thinking when explaining their research data.

I really can’t do the post much justice without copying their material word for word, however I will give you my top three favorite quotes. I highly recommend that you check out the site and share your favorites with the rest of us. Here are mine:

  1. “We didn’t read half the papers we cite because they are behind a paywall!”
  2. “Experimental time points were chosen so that I didn’t have to come into the lab in the middle of the night or over the weekend”
  3. “Sample size was smaller than planned because I had been in grad school for 10 years & my supervisor wanted me to graduate!”

Don’t forget to checkout the original post here.
