Happy Birthday! Is it PZ Myers or Captain Barbosa in disguise?

Long ago, I worked in a large lab that was divided into several small rooms. For part of that time, I shared one of the small rooms with a graduate student from Taiwan. She was a wonderful person who taught me that many cultural norms are not normal in other cultures. One moment stands out.

Yesterday, I posted a memorial for Ron Mardigian, an enthusiastic champion of science education at Bio-Rad. Today, I scanned RPM’s blog and what do I see? A choir! Bio-Rad has produced a really funny music video. It reminds me of the music video from “We are the World,” except some members of the choir are…

What’s that taste?

This wasn’t in the lab, but it was an accident, and it was funny later on. Normally, I wouldn’t think twice about storing bacterial cultures in a refrigerator. After all, bacteria on a petri plate, inside of a plastic bag, are kind of stuck. They can’t get out of the plates, and even if they…

or E. coli, or perhaps a little Giardia (just to loosen things up, of course), or maybe even Herpes. All these scary pathogens become works of art, when Infectious Awareables puts the images on neckties. And what could be funnier than a pair of boxer shorts full of Gonorrhea?

Judging from their groans and moans, I think sometimes that it’s hard for kids to grow up with two scientists as parents. Still, over the years our kids have come to accept (and ignore) that we seem to babble in some kind of strange code peppered with discussions of DNA, software, and lately something called…
