Entertaining Times Knowledge Was Dropped On Stupid 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.

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.

Steak-Umm Reignites Beef With Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Puns Ensue

It seems that Steak-Umm woke up today and chose violence. And while it isn't the first time (their Twitter is pretty legendary), this mini-vendetta against Neil Degrasse-Tyson has been too funny to ignore. On Sunday, Degrasse-Tyson tweeted that "The good thing about Science is that it's true, whether or not you believe in it." The sentiment, which is actually pretty dull, caught the attention of Steak-Umm's social media manager, Nathan Allenbach - who turned the platitude into an opportunity to ruffle some internet feathers. While at first Steak-Umm simply replied "log off bro," they later contextualized their stance, explaining that "science itself isn't "true" it's a constantly refining process used to uncover truths based in material reality and that process is still full of misteaks. neil just posts ridiculous sound bites like this for clout and he has no respect for epistemology." 

Where the initial sass-filled tweets are fiery and entertaining, the responses are taking things up a notch. It seems that Twitter users are eager to one-up each other with beef-related puns, desperate for Senpai (Steak-Umm) to notice them. And guess what? Many of them succeeded. While some people have jokingly suggested that the account take on Stephen Hawking (RIP), we really would love to see them go after some more public figures. While we never expected to support a brand's social account, let alone one that shills processed meat, we've really been enjoying Steak-Umm's social media development and can't wait to what kind of mischief they cause in the coming months.

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.

36 Science Memes For People Who Are Smarter Than We Are

It would be an absolute understatement to say that science is not my strong suit. While I tell friends that I failed chemistry three consecutive quarters in a row, the real reason was because it was completely beyond me. My father, who basically started the organic chemistry program at his university, would sigh, yell, and eventually give up when none of the concepts he attempted to explain seemed to click. These science memes are not for people like me. They're more suited for STEM students and grads. They're more suited for...actual scientists. And while I may not be able to enjoy them, I can definitely share them with you.

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.

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.
