Biological masquerade ball 2012

I know, I know, I am quite late with the strip about masquerade balls, but I've been busy in February and until now with other projects and ideas, but I did not want to miss the occasion for this comic strip. That is it briefly... I'll soon be back with some nice Easter comic strips :-).

Recapitulation theory by women (in science?) - a remake of the comic strip from stripped science

It is not the first, and probably not the last time when I got inspired by Viktor Poór from Stripped Science. So I made my version about the disproven idea of 'ontogeny recapitulating phylogeny', including some criticism about non-scientists arguing scientific topics (not about the actual theory itself, but about more complex issues related to evolution for instance). I also combined into this idea the fact that for instance Baby Boo made his first scientific presentation at the age of -5 months (i.e. 5 months before his birth and made his first detectable movements just the night before the presentation), and he met several Nobel prize winners already before his birth. And of course he ran PCR when he was only 1 week old (-9 months old), etc. So it is simply amazing how women in science can involve and introduce their kids to science. It is never too early to start :-).

Safety signs for the scientific escort (Miss Amanda Beauty, the wannabe professor wife)

Not too much comment this time, I think it is quite self-explanatory. Such Amanda Beauty-like women exist in the world, not only in the scientific world, but also everywhere...

Baby names for psychologists

Here comes the next (but not last) comic strip of the baby name series... I do not know why, but my cartoon about baby names for geologists is still very popular, so I decided to continue this series.

PhD entrance exams...

Feeling quite often completely neglected and excluded from all kind of scientific decision making, we (women scientists) can often only imagine how great male scientists make their choices for students. And yes, this REALLY seems to be the case quite often. But the cartoon is to be continued later with all kinds of different selection criteria that have nothing to do with science or competence... Things that make us only more frustrated and angry with all these male science decision makers of course.
