And now for something completely different

Time for some more light-hearted fare.

I've been there, with the lab that doesn't work. From what I've seen of "the real world" you deal with the same things, crappy equipment, ambiguous error-prone data, and unclear goals. The main difference that I see is that in real research you are supposed to talk to other people to figure out what's wrong, whereas in undergrad labs figuring things out on your own is considered a virtue. The main job of a researcher is to talk to other researchers because that's the way to best figure things out.

Anyways, that's enough ranting, just posting a funny link...
