Humor: The Methodology Section Translator

This is hilariously accurate.  I think people forget that most university research is done by 20-25 year olds… Normal grad students who just want to get their degrees.  I always try to remember that when reading a paper with surprising findings.  My own estimate, I’d guess that 60%+ of the retracted papers and unreplicated findings aren’t some vast conspiracy or collusion with Big Pharma… they’re some poor grad student who didn’t document well, or after the 8 gazillionth time running a gel to find a band of interest, finally broke down and just Photoshopped the fracking thing into the TIFF.
