From TFA: All while at least one scientist in the room tried desperately to hide his erection.

Should have ended all six stories with that line.

You know, a lot of science is done just because they felt like it. Science is a lot like sex: Sure, it has it's practical purposes, but that's not why we do it.

From my experience:

Dry ice bombs.
Drive ice bombs in dead mice.
Making mice glow before the virus we pumped into em solidified their lungs. (closest thing to an actual experiment we ever managed to do while bored).
Making Biblical scenes using combustable foams and setting them on life like an angry god.
Coating everything we could in a one atom thick layer of gold.
Same as above but copper.
Same as above but palladium.
Same as above but something we shouldn't have used and had a long talk with EHS.
Doing shots of Eagles.
Doing shots of DMEM.
Doing shots of RPMI 1640.
