Just a few pictures to illustrate how we entertain ourselves at work. In case you were wondering, the abundance of penguins is due to our holiday party, for which my lab did a skit about the magical land of science, where all grad students receive funding, experiments always work, and all papers are published in high profile journals. The bitter post-doc of the lab goes on a rampage, and puts the princess of the lab into a deep sleep by having her prick her finger on a poison Apple iPad. To cut an involved story short, the hipster undergraduate eventually rescues the princess with Linux…and the lab data was safe the whole time because it’s backed up nightly on an off-site server!

Yup. We’re nerds. Through and through.
