Researchers Express Dissertations Through Interpretive Dance

Moonbattery took art from Leonardo da Vinci to Jackson Pollock. It took literature from William Shakespeare to Maya Angelou. It took politics from James Madison to Barack Obama. Here's where it's taking science:

Who says scientists are awkward and ungraceful?
Thirty-six different videos on YouTube prove that wrong, as researchers translate their doctoral dissertations into interpretive dances, both solo and ensemble.
Four women in black cavort to '80s new-wave dance tunes to explain the evolution of smell in mammals.
Three MIT grad students boogie to Curtis Mayfield's "Move On Up" to represent nitrous oxide contribution to global warming.
Two lobsters gyrate with hula hoops to the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" as a passing seal senses their movements with his whiskers.

Unsurprisingly, the imaginary global warming phenomenon was the subject of more than one dissertation.

At society's current rate of decay, the scientists of the 22nd century will be struggling with the physics of starting a fire by rubbing sticks together.

Moonbat scientists pretending to be hemoglobin molecules.

this actually looks like something i do trying to get to the bathroom while tripping over two cats and a puppy...but NEVER intentionally...

The liberals are stumbling into "Science" so getting out of touch with reality would be in order...they found they can lie and get away with it since Global Warming farce made such a hit.

If I were reviewing their dissertation, I'd automatically give them an "F" but for their decision to use a Curtis Mayfield song. So they'd get a "D-" instead.
I hope my surgeon actually had to answer questions to pass his boards, as opposed to tap dancing while covering himself in foil to express his angst over healthcare costs or some such nonsense.

For any chemists involved, it's solvent fumes to blame.

No idea about other scientists. (When I say "scientists," I mean realscientists, not social "scientists." They are a joke.)

How long until it spreads to the police force or the army?

It doesn't matter if they're doing any good, the important thing is that they're "down with the kids". Moonbats won't be satisfied until every respectable profession has been reduced to the lowest common denominator.

In an age when people think that marching in the street in stupid costumes constitutes an intellectual argument why not?

Way to advance the cause of science!

Would geologists throw rocks at one another and the recipient would have to shout an identification before the rock hit him (or maybe after)?

[That actuall sounds like a Monty Python skit, wherein a blind-folded geologist calls out the identification of a rock he has been struck with. "Ow, I believe that was chalk from the Cliffs of Dover. That second one was a Paleozoic shale from Newcastle."]

I once considered puting my Geology Master's Thesis (on volcanics) to music, a la Disney's "Fantasia". But that sort of more-creative mixing of science and art would actually require a great deal of time, work, personal funds, and talent - unlike what we see depicted above.

As I couldn't get the link to work, I wonder how much taxpayer money was wasted on what looks like the interpretation of a bad acid trip.

Just like thos idiots from PETA running around naked over fur coats or those other jerks going naked over this global warming poppycock proving moonbats are absolutly the most stupid and rediculous politcal animals on the face of the earth

Can I just skip all the liberal indoctronation and just jump around like an idiot and get a degree? I really dont have time to sit in class, adhd you know.

A few years ago a local eco-freak held a stupid protest in which some members dressed as fish and pretended to be flippity flopping on land no one took this jerk and his stupid ecofreaks seriously we thought of that as being annoying and irritating

Wait, what's wrong with Maya Angelou

Wow...I never could truly grasp how blood molecules interact in the human circulatory system...the incredibly precise photo above has made it all clear now...

What would we do without these Deep Thinkers to explain everything to us thru dancing, dropping trou, parades, etc.?

MAYA ANGELOU is a new age pagan crack-pot nut case

Well Spurwing;

If those poor fish were flopping about on the dry land, the least you and your friends could have done was throw them into the nearest body of water!
