Science memes funny

Science memes funny DEFAULT

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."

Ten of Our Favourite Science Memes

We really do love to have a laugh here at Hello Bio. And as a team of scientists, it’s usually the case that we’re laughing about something science-related.

For the last few months, we’ve been sharing the science memes and jokes that have made us chuckle the most over on our social media channels. So, we thought we’d bring them all together into one blog post and share them with you!

Some are clever, some entirely relatable, and some are just, well, pretty silly actually – we hope that they raise a smile and brighten your day.

10.Things we learned in chemistry class

There are several chemists on the Hello Bio team, and they were all in agreement that this was probably up there with the top skills obtained during their studies.

17 Of The Funniest Memes About Science and Scientists

If we are truly honest with ourselves nothing improves our day more than a good old meme.

35 of The Funniest Science Tweets Ever

Memes bring to life our innermost thoughts and musings in the silliest funniest ways. They expose the human experience in stimulating ways and make us giggle.

In fact, let us face it, all good memes make us realize how much we all think alike. But when you combine this magnificent art form, yes we went there, with science we can almost reach a state of Nirvana.

The following 17 are some of the funniest science-themed memes out there. Please remember the following are in no particular order and, believe us, this list is far from exhaustive.

1. Join the resistance!

This is probably one of the most shared funny memes about science. A timeless classic, that we are confident you've chuckled about at some point on your social media feed.

Like all the best comedy its not immediately obvious what the punch line is, but once you see it you marvel at its simplicity of delivery. A true work of art, as memes go.

Kudos to the creator!

2. Only academic research scientists will understand

As if the life of a research scientist wasn't hard enough they need to constantly justify their existence through research grants. To most the process of applying feels like more a game of chance than a true level playing field.

This meme sums up the process in one simple, yet effective, short cartoon strip.

Whilst it might fall flat for anyone who has never had to run the gauntlet of research grant applications it will make those who've experienced the process chuckle heartedly.

3. 4s or 3d orbital? Decisions, decisions…

You might need to refresh your atomic theory first before finding this one funny but trust us it is. As any chemist will tell you the 4s orbital of an atom has a lower energy than the 3d one.

This means electrons will tend to fill that first and are also the lost first during ionization.

With that in mind, this meme transforms from a random assortment of letters, numbers and stunt performing car to a rather sophisticated and funny scientific meme.

Well played.

4. Think happy thoughts

Whilst this one might go over your head (pun intended) on first passing it does grow on you the more you look at it. It's probably to do with the crazy cat.

Glossing over the fact that serotonin is actually the neurotransmitter this meme is funny once you understand the point being made.

Basically its a joke about our desperate pursuit for joy in a sometimes seemingly grey and mundane world.

5. Do you like Pi and snakes? Check this meme out

Ok, this one is silly but hilarious. The best memes always have the laziest punchlines and this one is pure genius. Who doesn't like animal-math crossover jokes - be honest.

We are not sure if that's actually a thing but it should be given the superb quality of this specimen. To be honest we are annoyed we hadn't thought of it first. Good job.

6. Don't enrage Einstein

Judging by the reactions to this meme on Reddit it wasn't just Einstein who was annoyed. Whilst the meme is meant to be a joke some, including Einstein, just can contain their inner passive aggressive OCD tendencies.

To be fair the combination of Einstein's famous formula with that of Pythagoras is an old joke but it appears the creator took too many liberties with this one.

But who cares, we love the bottom part of the meme regardless. That's a scene we'd love to see in real life.

7. Here are some suggestions for a science-themed tracklist (maybe not)

This funny science-based meme is a little lame at first but does grow on you the more you think about it. To be honest our favorite part is the blatant rip-off of a particular online music streaming service that will remain unnamed here.

As for the songs chosen we give them a 5 out of 10. There is an entire back catalog of other science-based song titles they could've chosen from. No Super Massive Black Hole, for example.

8. Kelvin or Calvin, Hobbes or Higgs?

This take on the classic Calvin and Hobbes comics is true genius. We admire the imagination of its creator and are prepared to gloss over the inherent nonsensical combination of a measure of atomic energy and the excitation of the Higgs field.

After all, can we really compare Kelvin to a six-year-old mischievous boy? And where do we even start with comparing the Higgs Boson to an animated stuffed tiger?

Are we overthinking this too much?

Either way, its very well done and we could see it making a great T-shirt design in the not too distant future.

Anyway moving on.

9. On the subject of Kelvin

Here's an example of a scientific meme that breathes life into a timeless school joke. It's so silly you can't help but chuckle at it.

We concur Kelvin is just 0K.

Being a meme we'll ignore that fact the scales are a 'little' off, to say the least. At the end of the day, you get the idea.

10. The graveyard of scientific theories long dead

We must admit, whilst not technically a meme, this Halloween display at a Biochemistry Faculty is very creative. If you blinked and missed the joke don't fret look again more carefully.

If you still can't see the joke take a look at the tombstones. Still missing it? Then let us explain.

The first is a representation of the Bohr-Rutherford model of the atom and electrons (now defunct), the second is of phlogiston (a fire-like element) that was once thought to exist in all combustible materials, and the last 'Vitality' is a long defunct theory that all organic compounds could only come from some vital force of life.

Very clever and witty to say the least.

11. Would you like UGG Boots or an amino acid?

Here's another science-based meme that really needs the audience to have some 'insider' knowledge of biochemistry. It turns out, coincidentally, the that the brand UGG also happens to be the genetic codon for an amino acid called Tryptophan.

This amino acid is essential in humans and is the precursor to the vital neurotransmitter serotonin and melatonin.

A subtle joke and one that would likely go over many people's heads without explanation but funny once you understand the premise.

Now you know...

12. Everything should be perfectly balanced

Remember your stoichiometry from school? Do you like Guardian of the Galaxy? Then this meme is perfect for you.

This meme perfectly, ahem, balances the fundamental exemplar or stoichiometry with popular culture. But more importantly is it funny?

Well, it made us chuckle, what about you?

13. The REAL Ohm's law

This meme perfectly sums up the non-existent conflict between the esteemed George Ohm and Gustav Kirchhoff (that we might have just made up) and their competing formulations for resistance in an electrical circuit.

Whilst most are probably familiar with Ohm's classic formula, many might not recognize Kirchhoff's vector form of the equation often used in electromagnetics and material science.

We'll just leave it at that.

14. Storms don't last forever eh?

Here at IE, we do like to see those "blue-sky", vacuous memes being dismantled in sarcastic response memes. We know you do to, if you're being honest.

This funny science meme is a perfect example. "Storms don't last forever" do they?

Don't ask Jupiters Great Red Spot...

Though we might have spoken too soon. Now we feel silly.

15. Yeah NASA

Poor old Pluto. It went from obscurity to inclusion as on the planets of our solar system only to be relegated to planetoid status in less than a century.

If Pluto could talk we are confident it would be pretty peeved at its inglorious treatment. Whilst it's not technically all NASA's fault this meme would be certified 'fresh' by the former-planet Pluto.

We've got your back bro.

16. Seems legitimate

Did you know that if you have more birthdays it's more likely than not that you'll live longer? Now, aren't you glad we have legions of scientifical literature and talented cats to conduct this kind of research for us?

Thank you, Professor Lab Cat.

17. Schrodinger's cat lives!

Is it dead or alive? Perhaps it's in a perpetual state of death and undeath, a never-ending torment of pain and ecstasy. Do we dare take a peak to find out? Would that make us a cat killer?

A fine and dandy but what nobody ever thought to consider is whether our subject cat had license to actually try to escape. This meme puts to bed all doubt on the subject, it does indeed live.

Best of Science Jokes and other Memes - Math \u0026 Physics Jokes - Funny Memes Part 1

I know, I know, science is serious business. Science labs typically aren’t the places where memes and other viral nuggets are made, but where very smart people research and examine how things in the universe work, and then portray it to us lesser folk.

But who says we can’t have both, the scientific truth and a good laugh? The scientific spin on popular memes is, of course, no substitute for actually studying these subjects, but it might make you feel smarter, especially if you’re fluent in geek.

Anyway, I’ve been in the meme business for a long time now and I don’t take this lightly, so I can confirm that the science related memes are the best memes. So, without further ado, here’s your list of the funniest ones from the nerdiest minds on the Internet that will either make you laugh or scratch your head. Enjoy!
