Message from the gals of NCBI ROFL: One of us will be reproducing imminently, so NCBI ROFL will be on hiatus for a short while. In the meantime, please procrastinate by exploring our archives, containing over 900 ROFL-worthy posts! NCBI ROFL categories:

General: analysis taken too far – things that probably didn’t need to be studied batman! – an accidental category that became about bats and superheroes! duh – obvious studies are obvious eat me – mostly refers to food ethanol – boozin’ it up…for science! feelings shmeelings – psychology studies are funny fun with animals – mostly dogs! in pants! ha ha poop – if you like reading about the various things people stick up their butts, click here health issues I wish I didn’t know about – see above holy correlation – another accidental category that became about when science meets religion! lol! holy correlation batman! – correlation may not equal causation, but who cares! how is babby formed? – how girl get pragnent? old-skool – PubMed goes back to the 40’s and 50’s, and they did some crazy science back then penis friday – we dedicated one day a week to penis- (and sometimes vagina-) related science. You’re welcome, Discover Magazine! playing with balls – mostly refers to sports rated G – SFW and cute studies about kittens and sh*t like that reinforcing stereotypes – no-one said science has to be politically correct! ridiculous titles – sometimes scientists have no self control science or human rights violation? – some studies are just plain wrong scientist…or perv? – lots of studies about boobs smell you later – some research just stinks… or at least it’s subject matter does super powers – science of awesome-ness! teh interwebs – science of the computer tubes told you so – turns out that some of those “old-wives tales” are true! Why Medical Hypotheses should not be a journal – less relevant now that it’s peer-reviewed :/ WTF? – self-explanatory
