Mike the Mad Biologist

Not to pick on anyone, but this is what I go through with far too many projects:

“My grant is due tomorrow. I just need to know….”

And: “I can put you on my grant for a 0.5% FTE…”

    He should just use the biomechanics method: You need 4 animals. If you need more after that, get some more. If you need less, determine if they’re edible or make good pets.

    At least he went to that statistician *before* doing the study, instead of once everything is done and the mice are dead, with a quivering grad student handing you a jumbled mess of an excel sheet and telling you with hopeful eyes that their chances of graduating before the getting-kicked-out deadline hinge on the resulting sacrosanct “p”.

    And I’m in UK :(

    Actually, I’ve already watched it once before, but it’s so funny I’d love to see it again and pass it on. Does anyone know if there’s a copy of it on some other YouTube channel or whatever?

    First time I’ve seen this. It’s not funny because it’s true.

    “This video contains content from Comcast Entertainment Group”

    Huh!? That is the L.A group behind ‘E! Entertainment’.

    What content of this video are they claiming ownership of ? The dialog? The setting?

    Did they see it on the internet and decided that they would claim copyright to it? Why !? How !?
