At Disneyland! This is the best/worst thing I’ve seen yet



Guys. We need to talk about something. I’m tired of all the bigotry. I’m tired of all the hatred. I’m tired of people just not accepting. You don’t have to like everyone or everything. That’s not what I’m saying and to ask that would be ridiculous. But all milk shakes are created equal regardless of flavor. Spread this message and help put an end to Lactose Intolerance. 

I love you Denny’s



"no homo" I whisper as I look at my garden of pea plants. The progeny had expressed a 1:2:1 ratio of phenotypes. I am Gregor Mendel. 

This joke is lethal

Bronycon print that’s dated and lame and meme-ish but I think they look cute so sssshhhhh just let it happen

dude this is cool I can’t wait to see it done. You need to stop by my table .  ouo

Ooh I will :0


Check it out! Spread it around! It costs the same as a cup of coffee!

This gent here makes some awesome music and I’ve had the pleasure of joining him at a few conventions in the last month or so and his live show is also absolutely stellar. If there are any musicians not actively performing at Bronypalooza who deserve to attend, Seventh is unquestionably amongst them!
Support this album, support a fantastic musician!

Yes seventhelement is amazing (and a real life friend) so check out his work!!!

Hey Shychemist. I've been following your blog for awhile and I want to bring up something that seems dated but nonetheless holds to be accurate today. I feel like the girls who consider themselves to be on the science side of tumblr to be horribly mistaken. It's statistically proven that women applicants struggle to get into stem doctorate programs, and rightfully so, they don't belong there. examples- atomic-o-licious, brainsx , adventuresinchemistry, i can't fit anymore but you get it













It doesn’t seem dated, your attitude is dated. This is the 21st century.

Women deserve to be in STEM programs just as much as men. I’d wager they deserve to succeed in the Sciences even more than men because of the sexism and misogyny they experience.

They struggle to get in because they’re the minority, and a lot of people who could admit them are sexist (regardless of gender) because of the society they grew up in. Its not through any intellectual weakness. These women are amazing and just as smart as the men in their fields.

You have no right to say these things to these amazing women, many of whom I consider to be friends.

Wow. That seems like really fucking wrong. And offensive.
And I would love to take some more time out of my day to be pissed about it.

It seems that I have a lot of fucking science to do. 
So, uh, screw that.
If anybody needs me, me and my lady bits will be getting some fucking science done.


I’m oddly excited to have been name checked by this shitty anon. Because it means that the very fact that I got into an Ivy League, top 15 science PhD program (where I fucking belong) is a giant fuck you to shitty anon. Also, shitty anons make Lewis sad. Because Lewis is a feminists science hippo.


imageBest way for me to deal with shitty nonnies who think women can’t do science? DO MORE SCIENCE!!!! MWAHAHAHA


Crap, I’m a woman biologist. I’d go get another career but I have a groundbreaking thesis on rapid evolution of reproductive isolation between seed beetle populations to finish. 

I’m not a well-known tumblr scientist…but I am a scientist all the same. And while I could probably obtain a more gender-appropriate occupation… I’m pretty content with the fact I’m an atmospheric chemist Additionally, I am also one of the few women who have managed to be selected to intern at NASA’s airborne research program. 




Do I not deserve a place in the STEM fields, anon? 

Hey ladies! Mind if some physicists join in?

At the CERN visiting the CMS part of the LHC where were were working for 8 months on both computational and experimental work:


Presenting our research at a conference on Physics of Living Systems:

And visiting the Wind Tunnel experiment after presenting our research at Max Planck Institute at a Advances in Cardiac Dynamics Workshop


Oh, me? What do I do? I try to understand why superbursts happen in neutron stars! This is important because: they shouldn’t happen but they do. And the implications could be astoundingly helpful for things like, oh I don’t know, nuclear fusion.


Oh, just me, at a conference after presenting this:


"don’t belong there"?! excuse you! 
Im not a science tumblr but i am a girl and a geologist so i kinda prove you wrong…?

In the Sorbas Basin finding fossilised bird trackways and fossilised rain drops

Using HCl to dissolve solnhofen plattenkalk (limestones) to make plastic copies of exceptional fossils  


On board the HMS Discovery, a state of the art scientific ship which anchors at the NOC (national oceanography centre Southampton)


Doing some geological mapping and fieldwork in Ingleton Yorkshire


So yeh anon, you’re wrong and very very very outdated in your opinions 


Sorry, anon:  I’d love to stay and chat, but I’m afraid I’m too busy living in the future.


Dang anon by the time I was 22 I had already worked for a geology department at a museum, a lab at a university, and was a lab technician for a hospital.

Oh and my girlfriend interned for a cancer research facility before graduating from high school.

^ Said girlfriend. I also interned at a bioprocessing lab in high school, and I am going study biochemistry/molecular biology at a top liberal arts college.

I wanna do this!

I graduated Summa Cum Laude last year with a BS in Biochem and now I’m a grad student in Genetics at one of the top med schools in the country, currently working in a stem cell lab.

Picture of one of my induced pluripotent stem cell colonies I made, they are fucking cute.

Picture of messy bench

Also my labmate Anna took the pic of me and she is also a badass science lady women make rad scientists and Anon is on crack


greetings from Dashcon!  :)))))))
