I’ll put it bluntly—without science, life would be extremely boring. At least for me. There’s hardly anything that can compare to the rush of joy and the butterflies fluttering in your stomach when you stumble across a piece of news about some huge scientific advancements.

From new medicines that will greatly improve the quality of our lives to leaps in tech that are making regular space travel and the colonization of other planets merely questions of ‘when,’ not ‘if.’ And don’t even get me started on quantum physics which is so close to magic, I’m glancing out the window, waiting for my invitation to study at Hogwarts.

I’m not the only one in love with science, though! Frankly, I’m glad that’s the case because when it comes to science and learning—the more, the merrier. There are plenty of online communities that mix science with humor and one of them is the ‘Science Memes’ subreddit that’s dedicated to sharing and creating memes about science.

Check out the very best science memes that Bored Panda has collected from all over the web, including about r/sciencememes, and upvote the geekiest and funniest ones.

You don’t have to have a degree in biology, chemistry, physics, etc. to be a science geek. Similarly, just because you have a degree in science doesn’t automatically mean that this is it, there’s no turning back, you’ll have to work as a scientist until the end of your days.

Loving science is more about the curiosity inherent in human beings than choosing from a narrow list of undergraduate degrees. If you’ve got the spark to learn new things, test out your theories, and a willingness to be open-minded and proven wrong, then in my eyes, you’re a scientist. Degree or no degree!

Earlier, I actually had a chat about the wide gap between what people majored in and what career path they chose with voice actor André White, who has worked with the History Channel and The Smithsonian, among others.

According to him, we don’t have everything figured out by the time that we graduate from college. Instead, we should embrace that uncertainty and use our 20s to try new things and discover new passions.

“If you are 18 and you feel lost and not sure of what your next move should be, GOOD. No one should have it all figured out at that age. And the same goes for a 25-year-old or a 35-year-old. Don't feel like you HAVE to do what society tells you to,” André told Bored Panda in an earlier interview that we should learn to think and decide for ourselves. In short, we have to be bolder, more courageous.

“Go to a community college, go to an HBCU, start a business, find your passion because your passion is what's going to make those tough days a little less tough. What makes you smile ear to ear? Do that! Life is way too short to look back in 30 years and regret anything," André said.

“People feel like a college degree is how you get respect. College is still being pushed as a safety net when in reality going to a trade school, community college, or pursuing the path of an entrepreneur can be just as rewarding. I wish that we would teach our kids that there are so many other options and that if college is what they want to do, then fine but don't ever box yourself in."

But whatever path you find yourself on, remember that a lot of us have one thing in common—our love of memes. So keep your inner scientist alive and fed with some educational memes, no matter what degree you have and what your current job is.

This is wrong. Fever doesn't work on viruses because they largely rely on the molecular machinery of the human host cell. It works does for bacteria, however, which have their on molecular machinery that, for bacteria adapted to humans, works best at 37°C.

For those who DON'T know this: Draw 2 dots on a flat sheet of paper, connect them via the shortest distance. That is 2d. Bend the paper - now the shortest distance is *out of the paper through 3d space*. To 2d beings living in the paper, the straight line still looks like the shortest distance, but we in 3d space can see that this is not the case. Now add one dimension to everything: 2 dots in straight 3d space, shortest distance is the straight line connecting them. 2 dots in a 3d space *that is bend within the 4th dimension*, shortest distance is *out of the 3d space into the 4th (spatial) dimension then back in*.

In metric, decimal comma and with point as thousands separator... Circumference of the moon's orbit is 2.413.402 km. 1 degree of that circumference is 6704 km, so if you miss you're about 0,5 degree off. Since both the moon and earth are moving as well, missing it is actually very likely.
