I think it’s safe to say that very few of us read scientific research reports. To enjoy such a text, you not only have to understand what it’s about but the language it’s written in as well. Academics are fluent in using the most difficult words to explain the simplest things and they’re using the most complex sentence structures to practice it. But speaking the academic language isn’t that mind-numbingly boring. Turns out, a lot of scientists are publishing funny stories, they’re just written in code so no one outside the field would understand and ridicule them. But sharing is caring. And a few of them have broken their silence revealing the fails they’ve hidden under all of that confusing grammar. Thanks, tumblr.
