Specifically, for the "Biologist's Field Guide to Workplace Tippling" that I plan to write at some point, to make the most of my postdoctoral training.
Faced with an emergency situation that many field scientists are all too familiar with, the friendly (is there any other kind?) marine biologists at Southern Fried Science have cooked up a simple yet innovative solution to deal with the problem of running out of beer during an extended data-gathering expedition.
Awright! Too bad I'm a bench-bound lab rat, I'd love to test that protocol in situ. I've half a mind to hijack the lab's coffee machine and try it anyway, but much of the romance is lost from not being on an actual expedition. Also, laziness whispers that it's easier to abduct a few bottles from the departmental beer hour every Friday.
Incidentally, I love the following comment left at their blog:
If you check out their blog (do it!), take a look at this other post while you're at it. Not funny, but most illuminating.
