When opening a science textbook, fun is the last thing that comes to your mind. A brief moment of reminiscence takes you back to the sweaty school corridors and the ever-present anxiety of not having done your homework. But if you press pause on the moment in your memory where you’d read those odd science textbooks with the hardback covers, you’ll notice something weird. The infographics are the key word. How on earth did everybody think they were just fine?

Fast forward to today, and there’s a whole wave of adult people collecting such bizarrely captivating examples of science diagrams which may as well pass as some sort of colorful sketches by surrealist artists. No sense, no logic, no rules, just pure anything-goes kind of science-based improvisation.

And thanks to the hugely popular Twitter page "Science Diagrams that Look Like Sh*tposts," with an ever-growing audience of 754.3K followers, we now have some of the most solid winners in the funny and the weird departments. If you go “but why?” you can be sure you’re not alone, and that the science infographic is casting its spell on you.

It makes you wonder whether the publishers of these textbooks ever bothered to look at the content before submitting volumes upon volumes to print. But the internet is crazy about the s**tposting content that refers to the internet slang which means content of no value.

According to Urban Dictionary, “any content on the internet whose humor derives from its surreal nature and/or its lack of clear context” can be defined as a s**tpost. But it differs from a meme: “whereas a meme's humor comes from its repeatability, a s**tpost is funny simply because it isn't a predictable repetition of an existing form. S**tposts can become memes, but memes cannot become s**tposts.”
