Lab Humor

I got a hold of a camera today so it will be a day of many posts to make up for my recent hiatus. As some of you may remember I work in a lab as a technician. Basically I do data collection and minds more educated than me do the analysis. We are in essence a molecular evolution (systematics, phylogenetics and population genetics of bacteria) lab. It is great fun and I love it. This semester I got off my lazy tuchas and am taking a course that will hopefully expand my understanding of data analysis performed in my lab, which in turn may lead to me being more involved in some of it. In the meantime, there other things to keep me entertained:

I constructed this little guy on a whim and left him in our lab just before Xmas. The next day he was gone but reappeared in another part of the building. For weeks he continued to mysteriously travel around the complex we are in, until I finally returned him to our lab.

I can't take credit for this one, but it cracks me up every time I walk by:
