Basic Guide for Scientists

I. Science Classification

If it's green or it wiggles, it's part of Biology.
If it stinks, it's Chemistry.
If it doesn't work, it belongs to Physics.

II. Rules for Laboratory Workers

When you don't know what you're doing, do it neatly.
First draw your curves, then plot the data.
Experience is directly proportional to the equipment ruined.
Experiments must be reproducible. They should all fail the same way.
A record of data is essential. It indicates you have been working.
In case of doubt, make it sound convincing.
Do not believe in miracles, rely on them.
Teamwork is essential in the lab. It allows you to blame someone else.
Always leave room to add an explanation when it doesn't work.

III. Finagle's Laws, Creed, and Motto

First Law - If anything can go wrong with an experiment, it will.
Second Law - No matter what result is anticipated, there is always someone willing to fake it.
Third Law - No matter what occurs, there is always someone who believes it happened according to his pet theory.
Fourth Law - No matter what the result, there is always someone eager to misinterpret it.
Creed - Science is truth. Don't be misled by facts.
Motto - Smile; tomorrow it will be worse.
