One Ring, Two Ring, Red Ring, Blue Ring May 9, 2006Posted by Sacha in Humor.
This is a small, but hopfully growing, ongoing list of scientific papers (published and unpublished) from researchers with a sense of humor.
This one got published: New Dust Belts of Uranus: One Ring, Two Ring, Red Ring, Blue Ring When I forwarded it to my lab's PI, he wasn't as amused as I. I must have a reputation, because I think he thought I was serious when I asked if I too could name my paper after a Dr. Seuss book.
This one you just have to read (not published, thank god): Electron Band Structure In Germanium, My Ass. My husband has two degrees, one in Comp Eng and one in physics and I think the conclusion pretty much sums up how he feels about physics too. (Correct me if I'm wrong, dear.)
