Science Blogs

Posted by Jim H on January 27, 2008

I do a lot of surfing, in my sare time, looking for stuff to write about, commenting on some of my favorite blogs and just reading other blogs for fun. I have “blogrolled” some of the blogs I read regularly in the column on the left. I will be addin gto it in the future.

If you’re a rookie, then the ScienceBlogsā„¢ is a good place to start. This weekend I have been going through the list published on A Blog Around the Clock for the winners of the 2007

Nothing captures life in the academic sciences quite like Piled Higher and Deeper. In yesterday’s comic, Jorge Cham shows us the disgusting innards of the lab/office fridge.

With that in mind, here’s my rendition of “The Lab Fridge”:


Aside from the empty bottles that some lazy, inconsiderate lab mate (most likely me) failed to refill, what’s missing from the fridge?

Here’s the whole list, for your reading pleasure:
