tbf, describing Michael Eisen as a 'journal editor' is kinda like calling Donald Trump a 'government worker'.

Biologists are passionate about biology. Go figure. My most liked Tweet to date was a politically irreverent joke about the phylogeny of viruses. So, I get it. Nerds gonna nerd (a compliment). They are probably going to be the ones to save the world. Let them have their fun.

I would be totally behind this except way too many of them are tone policing about using words derived from Old English instead of Latin or Greek and I am extremely tired of this vibe generally but especially in academia

They should study why did biology give no sense of humor to biologists.

The people who work with fruit flies are the only ones with any sense of humor (and then only some)

C elegans is a worm that incidentally is a really really really good model for human cells and tissues in a lot of cases, and thus is really important for a lot of medical and biological science research. Dude was just memeing and the others don't get it.
