The FUNNIEST Science Video On The Web!

This is by far one of the funniest scientific-genre videos on the web. You simply must watch.

One of my favourite lines from the video is when he explains that hundreds of pounds of beard hair sample is kept at -80C “not for preservation…just because I don’t like the smell!” What’s your favourite part?

    Hilarious. I like the bioethicist. And as someone bearded and now bald I completely appreciate this.

  2. avi_wener says:

    Ha @dorloff! Beware! Now that you have revealed yourself the investigators might be tempted to draft you into their sample pool!

  3. SciGuy says:

    This is really bad! Not even slightly amusing.

  4. Snowmanly says:

    I clicked on it by accident because I thought it said Beer-ome

  5. John says:

    I can’t beleive there was a grant for this! Is this where my tax money is going? HELP?

  6. John_B says:

    I am not sure if this was a waste of my time or theirs. TBD

  7. Vic says:

    Is any part of the beardome research NIH funded?

    If it is, two comments:
    1) How do I get to have THAT study section?
    2) I may not pay federal tax anymore.

    Sorry - not that funny!

  9. Ed Hudson says:

    Where do I sign up as a test subject?

  10. Phil Goetz says:

    “I don’t care about beards, but we got this grant…”

    and the obligatory bioethicist.

    Very funny Vic. You should see the types of studies that get federal funding! If everyone stopped paying taxes for each study, this country would be in worse shape than it already is!

  12. avi_wener says:

    Sorry you felt this way John. I had a good laugh that gave me an energy boost to continue on with my day!

  13. avi_wener says:

    Hey John. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Like I told Vic, you wouldn’t believe the places that your tax money is going!

  14. avi_wener says:

    There’s a great post for beerome as well. Checkout Genomics, proteomics…Beeromics on the European Biotechnologist.

  15. avi_wener says:

    C’mon! Not even the least bit? Maybe I need to get out of the lab more.

  16. avi_wener says:

    That’s OK. Everyone has different tastes.

    How long is your beard?
