New Twitter Hashtag Tells it All: Overly Honest Methods

If you haven't checked out twitter lately, you might want to.  Tweeters like WorstProfEver and hashtags like #overlyhonestmethods bring together like-minded academics in a way that is sometimes funny and more than often a little confessional.  Either way, it's worth a look.

Remember that Academic Ladder is on twitter as well, so you are welcome to follow us:   You can also find some of the funniest "overly honest methods" at the blog Runt of the Web, which has paired the most popular methodology tweets with images.

My favorite?  "PCR reaction repeated for 25 cycles because that's how long it takes to go teach class."
