Hipsterscience: Twitter comedy on true indie science

The #hipsterscience tag on Twitter has become a comedy goldmine of science larfs and chuckles. The best of them have been collected on Sciencetopia:

noahWG: I discovered the Higgs boson, but fuck if I'm going to ruin it by telling others about it. #hipsterscience

talyarkoni: Hypothesis testing is for people who lack conviction. #hipsterscience

CBC_psi: My data don't need to fit to your "model." #hipsterscience

drugmonkeyblog: The Williamsburg Project was edgier RT @nwerneck @bjkraal: I liked Richard Feynman before he joined the Manhattan Project. #hipsterscience

  1. Hipsters were cooler before there was that lame hipster label applied. OTOH anything to get more smart women to throw out the contacts wear geeky glasses!

  2. Two hipsters declared their majors as evolutionary biology. The one hipster turned to the other and said, “let’s get out of this field, there are too many hipsters in it.”

  3. To keep things simple and less likely to break I did actually use an overhead projector for my thesis defense.

    The projector’s light bulb blew after the first slide.
