Although some are cruel, the stories of these scientists will kill you with laughter.
The most vulnerable and shameful side of science has been revealed. Scientists have decided to wreak havoc and communicate it. How did this happen? Nothing more and nothing less than through a Twitter hashtag. The so-called #fieldworkfail hashtag has become a trend in science researchers. Through this, they report their most embarrassing, uncomfortable and of course, fun moments; even those who were out of reach but still extremely gracious.
Field Work Fail, the book
Although #fieldworkfail has existed for several years, Jim Jourdane had the idea of compiling all the experiences of scientists and converting them into illustrations for a book. These are some of the funniest stories.
The book was made thanks to the Kickstarter platform, where Jim started his campaign. Thanks to many people the book will be published this September, so stay tuned for everything at http://fieldworkfail.com
