Science is a pretty earnest endeavour, sometimes it’s healthy to poke fun at it. The Independent Standard is a serious sounding web-site, but it’s effectively along the lines of the ‘Daily Mash‘ or ‘The Poke‘ for the Sciences.

I would recommend visiting this site if you want to cut-free from the Science wheel for a while. They are all spoof stories but sometimes the parody is so deep that it actually makes you think about the process of Science.

Some good examples are:

Human Tears Are The Best Thing For Precipitating DNA…..worth thinking about the next time a DNA/RNA prep comes around

An ‘Eppendorf For Life’ Scheme Launched…we have shopping bags for life…what about Eppendorfs for life..

and Leeds Scientist Refuses To Do Southern Blot….reporting regional variations in attitudes to molecular biology techniques
