hstein3: I had a friend in grad school who had worked for an NIH lab.  He said that they kept a rack of vials and beakers full of various Kool-Aids in the back of the lab for whenever movie/documentary makers would come by.  If they needed generic "Science in action" scenes, they'd drag out the Kool-Aid and start pipetting it from one container to another.

Also popular:  Old school sequencing gels.  Those gel slabs were enormous, so having big green bands of dye visible on them was a nice visual.

That reminds me of most of the organic chemistry i did as a lab assistant just after uni. It was

1. Dissolve white powder into a solvent
2. Add 2nd white powder
3. Wait for a bit
4. Separate out product with separating column
5. Evaporate off solvent
6. Finish with white powder

pkrzycki: Why the F U, C K is no one wearing A) Goggles, and B) Gloves... SMH

Don't worry, the woman who looks like she' s going to perform acupuncture on a laptop with a multimeter is wearing goggles.
