If you've ever wondered what "hipster science" might be like, then the Twitter feed #hipsterscience could be for you. DrugMonkey mined the discussion for what he considers the most humorous takes on things that hypothetical hipper-than-thou labmates might say, such as "I use my own heirloom goat's milk for blocking buffers," a submission from user superkas, and JoshRosenau's addition: "My primers are organically made by a guy I know. You wouldn't have heard of him." Hypothetical hipster labmates on Twitter also show a tendency toward self-publishing, a general preference for overhead projectors over PowerPoint, and a strict dress code. According to user dorsalstream: "I only work with skinny genes."
