Seriously, it kills me when I see people hold scientists up as pinnacles of logic and reason.

Because one time the professor I was interning for got punched in the face by another professor, because mine got the funding, and told the other professor his theory was stupid.

This same professor told me to throw rocks to scare the “stupid fucking crabs” into moving so we could count them properly.

SCIENCE

thank you

this is one of the best comments this post has recieved

I have witnessed:

Two professors hiding around a corner and snickering, “Shhh, here she comes!” While a female professor approached and, when she finally found them, she proceeded to scream while pointing from one to the other, “You! I called your office but you weren’t there! So I tried to call YOUR office to figure out where HE was but YOU weren’t there!”

Two grad students standing outside a closed and locked door yelling, “Come out of the damn office. You haven’t left for days. If you didn’t have a couch in there I’d be concerned as to where you were sleeping!”

A religious studies professor apologizing for being late to class because, “security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit”

Watched a professor snort the results of my experiment to determine if I had the right final compound.

Two archeology professors toss priceless fossilized teeth back and forth in an attempt to figure out who is smarter by “guessing the type of tooth and species of animal before it lands”

Multiple fully degreed individuals throw dry ice at one another in an attempt to be first to use the lab/get that piece of equipment/or change the iPod song.

A genetics professor build furniture out of stacks of paper and planks of wood because she is that far behind in grading papers/responding. One of the impromptu furniture pieces housed a fish tank.

I could go on but I think that covers the larger portion of the insanity…

Every time it comes around on my dash, it gets better.

I have had a professor buy a huge fuckoff bottle of rum during fieldwork in Costa Rica and let the undergrads get wasted because “you’re not underage in Costa Rica and we’ll be up all night with the bats anyway!”

- Same professor hung a bat from her headlamp and wore it as a decoration for an entire night. 

- A whole swarm of older women - and these are women with PhDs and world-renown bat experts, the bigwigs - all, to a woman, go to the formal charity dinner at an international research symposium in Toronto in late October dressed in skimpy Batgirl costumes. Because Halloween was that weekend, you see.

- At a different conference, a professor get blackout drunk and pass out on the side of the road. 

- “Yeah, we have to say we did it properly for the grant but to be really honest, Miracle-gro works better.”

- Teaching lab: we had liquid nitrogen for a demo, and after class the professor, the other TA, and I spent a good two hours freezing and breaking things in it. 

a chemistry class begins with 30 students nine months later just six of us left sitting on tables dipping paper into contaminated chemicals to see what happens when we burn it teacher making idle suggestions while he marks our work

"go to the fume hood thing, yeah now put some potassium in chlorine" can i burn the results sir? "fuck it sure whatever its tainted anyway"

The prof I’m working for just asked me if I knew how to pick a lock, and when I responded “yes” she replied, “see, this is why I hire the former delinquents instead of the suck-ups. You’re actually useful.”

I then let her into her office.

The professors named our group the KGB as a joke. One of them has a building named after him.

My Art professor was stopped by campus police because she looked like a hobo.

Mama… just killed a man…

Picked him up and bit his head,

Swallowed him whole and now he’s dead

Mama… The fight has just begun

But now I’ve gone and thrown my limbs away

Mama..Ooooooo

I’m gonna make you scream and cry,

You won’t be back in time for bed tomorrow,

You’ll be gone, you’ll be gone

Too late, my time has come

Body’s decapitating all the time

Goodbye, everybody, I’ve got to go

Gotta leave you all behind and face the titans on your own

Your mama,

She’s gonna cry,

It’ll be like you were never even born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man,

Rivaille, Rivaille, will you do the Titan K.O,

Sexiness with lighting,

Very, very frightening.

(Ravioli) Ravioli

(Ravioli) Ravioli

(Ravioli) Heichou

Magnifico

I’m just a shifter nobody loves me

He is just a shifter with barely any family,
Spare him the crime of destroying the city

Titans come 
Titans go
I’ll shift, then I’ll go?

MA-RI-A

No! We’ve let our cities go!
(Eren, go!)

TROST DIS-CTRICT

We must seal the hole!
(Squadron, go!)

LE-ON-HART

We will catch her now!
(Annie, no!)

Sina’s not our home!
(Don’t you know?)

Kill, Kill all the titans.

Eren, let me go, oh!

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, BRO!

Oh, Wall Maria
Wall Maria
(Wall Maria we will go)

My old basement has secrets put aside for me,
for me, 
for me.

Can you kill all of them in a blink of an eye?

Could Marco come back and others who have already died?

Oh, maybe.
Can’t cry over this, baby.
Just gotta let go
Oh, freckled jesus don’t you fear.

(Oh yeah, blood bath)

Killing titans matters,
Everyone can see.
Killing titans matters,
Killing titans matters,
To me.

All the bloodshed starts here…..

someone make an audio post of this. i mean, I’d do it but no one wants to hear my voice, so someone else has to

The battle between Fingolfin, High King of the Noldor in Beleriand, and Morgoth, the Dark Foe of the World, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion

For the rocks rang with the shrill music of Fingolfin’s horn, and his voice came keen and clear down into the depths of Angband; and Fingolfin named Morgoth craven, and lord of slaves. Therefore Morgoth came, climbing slowly from his subterranean throne, and the rumour of his feet was like thunder underground. And he issued forth clad in black armour; and he stood before the King like a tower, iron-crowned, and his vast shield, sable unblazoned, cast a shadow over him like a stormcloud. But Fingolfin gleamed beneath it as a star; for his mail was overlaid with silver, and his blue shield was set with crytals; and he drew his sword Ringil, that glittered ice.” - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Morgoth looks like Sauron
Anyone else notice that

There’s a reason for that, you know. 

Aside from the same author?

Morgoth was the original ancient evil of Middle Earth, and the most powerful by far; Sauron was Morgoth’s principle lieutenant and greatest servant. After Morgoth fell: "Bereft of his lord…[Sauron] fell into the folly of imitating him," and in his desire for power and control became the new Dark Lord. I’m not 100% up on all the lore, but there’s more info/quotes here. :)
