Awkward Science Stock Photography

Awkward Science Stock Photography

Most of my blogging time is dedicated to my hit image blog Fresh Photons these days, but I recently came across this great image above on a blog called Awkward Stock Photos.

Whimsically, I decided to see what other stock images were available under the tag “Experiment” and I basically laughed my way through 70 pages of results. To be honest, most of them aren’t so bad, but here are some of my personal favourites,

The copper sulfate guzzler,

The movie villain chemist,

90% of the pictures are of scientists squinting at beakers. Ah, so this is how one does science!,

Science is serious business,

Wait, what?

Oh, I guess it’s a standard chemical reaction,

Just an alien fetus,

It’s about time some scientist extracted the essence of love,

Love extraction failed,

On the contrary, this one is titled “successful experiment”. Great Job!,

Who let sexy tomb-raider into the lab?,

Tomb Raider Scientist

The ‘dot’ in Photos.com adds some extra flair to this one,

Sexy Chemist with Bad Teeth

Good old topless chemistry,

Topless Male Chemist

Topless Chemistry

At least wear a bra!,

Topless Chemist

Much better,

Inappropriate Scientist

Girls Gone Wild in the lab y’all,

Alcoholic Scientist

Lensless safety goggles are also all the rage, I hear,

Lensless Goggles

Fun with needles,

Death Scientist

No gloves, but at least he’s focussed on the task at hand,

Careful Scientist

“Ok, Now try being a more menacing scientist”,

Menacing Scientist

This looks bad…,

Not Sure Scientist

Oh nevermind, it’s all good,

Happy Scientist

Blatant animal testing (via interrogation), “ANSWER US, DID YOU LAY THESE EGGS?!”,

Here’s a lady using a multimeter to clean the crap out of her keyboard,

Computer Cleaning

Cheers to good science and a romance-free workplace,

Edit: I compiled a sequel to this post if you’re interested in more exciting science stock photography!
