tap-and-dye

Most people’s first reaction: Oh my God! Is that a girl doing science?!
My first reaction: YOUNG LADY, WHERE ARE YOUR SAFETY GOGGLES, LAB COAT, GLOVES, AND ALL OTHER PPE?!
My second reaction: PUT YOUR HAIR IN A PONY TAIL SO YOUR HEAD DOESN’T CATCH ON FIRE.
My third reaction: TAKE OUT THOSE HOOP EARRINGS. THAT IS A SAFETY HAZARD.
My fourth reaction: I can’t believe the NIH posted this picture on their Facebook page. That is practically asking for a major fine from OSHA.
My fifth reaction: LABEL YOUR GODDAMN CHEMICALS! I don’t give a fuck if that is tap water with dye in it. For all I know it could be corrosive and/or lethal and/or bad for the environment to dispose of down the drain.
My sixth reaction: Oh look at her doing sciencey stuff. She has a lot to learn about lab safety, but one day she might be a role model to other aspiring female scientists!
