A penis in your coffee in definitely worth blogging about.
(That's Shaft. I wish I could stop having to clarify that. JUST GET MY FUNNY JOKE YOU GUYS.)
While we're on the topic of penis, let's have a word from our sponsor Dr. Steve Brule*.

*Dr. Steve Brule is not affiliated with this blog in any way/shape/form. It would obviously be heaps funnier if he was.

mind map catastrophe

I have been given an amazing opportunity to potentially live and work in Sweden, in my dream job, for a few years as of next year. Part of my application is a three page summary of my research and where I would like to take it. I am finding this extremely difficult so I thought I would draw up a flow-chart/mind-map/flow of consciousness style diagram of all the things I really care about and would like to do in my research career. This is the result. Which has led me to the conclusion that I possess high levels of insanity and would perhaps be better suited to kindergarten teaching or just being very quiet for a very long time.

And this (pate):

And also this (3 cheese souffle):

This raised the bloody bar in terms of male hotness:
