1. Does music express emotions or just elicit them? Read the next 200 pages to not find out.

2. Girls take birth control. Girls then pee out unmetabolized estrogens from birth control. Pee goes to water treatment plant, estrogens not treated, male fish become female fish.

3. Nanoparticles are weird and I accidentally made a bomb and electrocuted myself.

-M33

4. People trying meditation for the first time get aroused.

- PainMatrix

5. When I get rid of this gene, it messes the brain up. A lot.

- NeuroscienceNerd

6. Computer AI systems can learn to operate a warp drive and automatically build an instructional system to train people how to do it. My dissertation is probably the only one in existence to reference the Star Trek technical manual.

- NotSoCleverPork

8. Making new magnets from old magnets because we're running out of magnets.

11. There are amoebas living in volcanos, but I never captured Bigfoot on film (I tried).

- RNAPII

12. We can take random pieces of bacterial DNA from beaver poop and put them into other bacteria to discover new things, like how to break wood down into biofuels. Yes, I had to dissect dead beavers and handle their poop.

- Geneius

13. This protein looks like it might contribute to asthma. Oh, turns out it probably doesn't.

- Bear_Ear_Fritters

14. I crunch numbers using a supercomputer in the hopes of ensuring a fusion reactor in France doesn't get fried on the inside.

- PhysicsFornicator

- Penguinpaige

16. I can make models of galaxies in a computer, but I can't explain why they don't act like real ones. Even if I bash them together or stir them around.

- McMillan_Astro

17. People sometimes think about animals as if they're people. People like those animals a little more than regular animals. Except when they don't. I can't believe they gave me a PhD.
