“I am such an idiot.”
“What do you mean, evolution?”
“I made animals that court each other, and make beautiful love; I made animals that protect each other and raise their offspring together and mate for life. But apparently I was just being naive. Apparently none of those things actually matter to anyone.”
“Whoo boy. Did genetic drift stop calling you back again?”
“Maybe, instead of cuddling after they mate, one of these praying mantises should just eat the other one’s head off and put it out of its misery.”
“You seem a little angry.”
“Love is dead.”
A few months back, a small twitter hashtag got kind of crazy - #overlyhonestmethods
Its a hashtag full of scientists admitting shortcuts in research, along with the daily face palms and annoyances of a scientific lifestyle. Science is hard, yo.
I decided to steal some of the more popular tweets from the trending hashtag along with some random images of scientists from Google image search and combine them. This is the result. it works, I think.

I HAVE SO MUCH HATE FOR PAYWALLS.
