  1. Wow, that is so true. And that is why it is comical.

  2. insert “BPA” here… except if it *were* BPA, the researcher would be being flown round the world by non-BPA baby bottle companies to explain why damage caused by injecting rats with BPA under the skin is exactly like what happens to your baby should you be irresponsible enough to use plastic baby bottles.

  3. Love it, thanks. Just posted the phdcomics link to my tumblog, (with credit here.)

  4. This is so awesome. I’m going to use it when I teach research methods in the fall.
