Devastating Times Knowledge Was Dropped On Ignorant People

According to our timelines, pretty much everyone is a medical expert or scientist these days. These "experts" throw around knowledge that is factually untrue and sometimes even downright dangerous. And it's extremely satisfying when these wannabe Einsteins get schooled by actual professionals on social media. This gallery is full of that delicious dunking. We hope these numbskulls learned their lessons and maybe even starting cracking some actual books.

Twitter Thread Exposing Fish Fraud Is Both Eye-Opening & Revolting

We've got some seriously bad news for fish-lovers. According to a report from nonprofit Oceana, over 20% of 449 fish that they tested were mislabeled, exposing some pretty serious "fish fraud." This is a staggering percentage, especially when considering that less than 1% of fish is tested for fraud. There's a huge chance that the expensive fish you're ordering while dining out is cheap - or even, according to this related Twitter thread from a biology professor, dangerous. There are fish out there that will hurt you to eat. And, as @AwesomeBioTA's class discovered, some of this "fish" is almost too disgusting for words.

Eye-opening twitter thread about professor doing a class on fish fraud | Dr.Jen M @AwesomeBioTA Josue sequenced some red snapper put money on being tilapia and right. Someone owes 5. His lab partner, Juanni, sequenced Atlantic Salmon. Comes back as Rainbow trout. Unsurprising. Not same species AT ALL, but unsurprising.

36 Out Of Context Diagrams That Became Accidental Memes

Many of us can still remember flipping through old high school textbooks and coming across some bizarre imagery attempting to articulate an idea, equation, or process. In a hyper-memed world, it's hard not to think of the memetic potential of these educational diagrams. One Facebook group is dedicated to documenting these science diagrams that look like shitposts, and we can't get enough. We've collected a hearty batch of amusing images from the group that are totally begging to be memed.

43 Accidental Memes Discovered In Textbooks

We all remember being a kid, lazily looking through that musky 'Science 101' textbook with glazed-over eyes. Well, we might have missed out on a lot of great content while we weren't paying attention in class, and I'm not talking about equations. Scrolling through the novelty Twitter account 'Science Diagrams That Look Like Shitposts' is a truly delightful experience. Since the beginning of the year, @scienceshitpost has been sharing hundreds of snapshots that capture the very bizarre but otherwise innocuous charts, graphs, and illustrations in textbooks. The awkwardly cropped and often blurry photos immediately take on a meme-like quality when removed from their original context and dropped into rapid online circulation. It's only a matter of time before the memelords transform some of these images into the hottest new format.

We've collected forty-three of our favorite accidental memes from @scienceshitpost. These hilarious treasures made us regret neglecting that outdated chemistry book!

Twitter Conspiracy Theorists Attack Ian McKellen's Vaccine Endorsement

Conspiracy-loves and anti-vaxxers have really been making themselves heard as the world struggles to contain the deadly Covid-19 epidemic. While many people are celebrating the release of Pfizer's vaccine, conspiracy theorists are growing increasingly loud in response to any mention of the drug. Sir Ian McKellen received the vaccine early today, explaining that "Anyone who has lived as long as I have is alive because they have had previous vaccinations." The actor shared his excitement and recommendation on Twitter, and while many fans congratulated the 81 year-old, the trolls were just as eager to attack the endorsement. The truthers, who apparently don't believe in science, accused McKellen of everything from lying to sucking the teat of Bill Gates. We've included some of their cringey commentary below - maybe some of you will join the fight and help put them in their place. Our beloved Gandalf deserves better.

30 Coronavirus Memes Because We're Still In The Struggle

DISCLAIMER: This page is for entertainment purposes only. If you have questions about Coronavirus, or think you came in contact with a COVID-19 carrier, please check the CDC FAQs or contact you local health provider for accurate information. Stay safe everyone.

Summer's about to be over and the United States is still struggling to control the coronavirus pandemic. While some states seem to be improving (some after a dismal first wave), California, Texas, and Florida are seeing dismal increases in both cases and deaths. As all the mask-haters and conspiracy theorists butt heads with scientists and government officials, many of us are left to sit at home, job hunt, and dream of a day we can go to a bar with friends without risking our lives or the lives of someone else. We're also left to cope with corona-related memes like these. If we can't laugh at our situation, then we know we're really screwed.

Elon Musk Earns 'Space Karen' Title After Complaining About Covid-19 Tests

If you thought the internet was done talking about Karens or Elon Musk, you were dead wrong. And Twitter offered us an unholy amalgam of the two this weekend. The SpaceX founder tweeted on Friday that "something extremely bogus is going on," regarding Covid-19 tests. 

The tweet, unsurprisingly, was not well received. While many people resolved to call Elon Musk a "pos" and decry his penchant for fueling conspiracy theories, doctors and academics instead called him out in the best way they know how: with facts and statistics. While we admire every own, it was Dr. Emma Bell of Toronto, Ontario that delivered the harshest blow. In their takedown tweet, they refer to Elon Musk as "Space Karen." The nickname was received far better than Musk's cringey tweet. We've put together some of the best reactions to Musk's tweet and subsequent Karen-dom, but we're willing to bet you'll find more goodies on Twitter.  


Funny memes and tweets Space Karen and about elon musk's cringey tweet about covid testing | Emma Bell PhD @emmabe1142 Rapid antigen tests trade sensitivity for speed. They return a result in minutes, but can only detect COVID-19 when you're absolutely riddled with it. What's bogus is that Space Karen didn't read up on the test before complaining to his millions of followers. Elon Musk @elonmusk Something extremely bogus is going on. Was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back

24 Women Share Dumb Things Men Have Said To Them About Sex And Women's Health

As reproductive rights are being stripped from women in Alabama and Missouri, many women are coming out to discuss their experiences with abortion and reproductive health. After reading this Twitter thread from @brownandbella, we are starting to think that we need to talk not only about the right to choose, but about the state of sexual education in the United States. These astounding shows of ignorance are definitely proof that something needs to change. We might be chuckling at some of these tweets, but reality of it all is pretty frickin' dark.

Science Memes For Smart People With Big Brains

We share a lot of memes on this site, and while some of them tackle philosophy, literature and art, there's not much representation of the right brain. These science memes are intended to change that. They feature a healthy mix of very basic science references and shitposts, and some more intense material for the smart and driven people who were in STEM classes. They're no substitute for actually studying these big-brained subjects, but they might make you feel smarter.
