XKCD comic showing two stick figures talking: "The problem with scientists is that you take the wonder and beauty out of everything by trying to analyze it." Voice from off panel: "Dude!" Third figure running up: "My plasmoidal slime molds have heightened pigment production! Check out that yellow color! That actually makes them zinc-resistant. Amazing, huh?" "It looks like dog barf" "Hah, yeah! F. Septica is nicknamed 'dog vomit slime mold.' Cool, huh? Check out my slides!" "Okay, nevermind; what's wrong with scientists is that you do see wonder and beauty in everything. Oh God, it's moving!" "It wants to hug you! So cute!"
