An evil laboratory is a laboratory dedicated largely or entirely to evil science. Evil science is a distinct discipline in its own right, though it is usually not recognized as legitimate by other fields, and thus is practiced in specialized buildings by people who majored in it. However, it is rare for colleges and universities to offer majors in the subject, so evil laboratories have a hard time finding prospective employees with the appropriate qualifications. To make up for this, they often hire people from other branches of science or unwitting college students looking for a summer job.
It is sometimes argued that all laboratories are evil because science is bad, but this is a misconception. Only evil science is evil; other forms of it are simply amoral. Evil science is theorized to be an offshoot of omnidisciplinary science, another rare field.
Evil laboratories are sometimes called "evil labs" for short, but this can also refer to evil Labrador Retrievers, which are a different phenomenon entirely. (more...)
