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...)
... the Japanese have a saying: "A man cannot read the same Wikipedia page twice"? The pages are constantly being edited, and the act of reading it will make you a different person. Therefore, when a man goes back to re-read it, both the text and the man have been changed.
July 16: International Turning Japanese Day (America, 1980s)
1812 - Neils Bohr lays out the first Table of the Elements, containing less than half of the elements known today, but including most of the important ones such as Linoleum and Kryptonite.
1862 - American Civil War: David Farragut becomes the first United States Navy rear admiral, becoming the butt end of 'rear admiral' jokes for decades.
1945 - The Age of Large, Mutated Reptiles begins (pictured) when the United States successfully detonates a nuclear weapon, unleashing gigantic horrors upon the world (mostly Japan).
1972 - The Time Cubicle Theory is first developed. The lead theorist was certainly not on any sort of brutally mind-bending narcotics.
1994 - Disney releases the animated movie The LionKing despite accusations of plagiarism of the Japanese animated movie Emperor Lion/ Kimba the White Lion. Disney lawyers assert that Lion King is about a young lion whose parents are killed and is advised by a baboon, while Emperor/ Kimba is about a young lion whose parents are killed and is advised by a baboon.
1994 - Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collides with Jupiter and is sentenced to twenty space-years of probation for reckless endangerment and orbiting without a license.
2012 - Lionsgate releases the dystopian movie Hunger Games despite charges of plagiarism of the Japanese dystopian movie Battle Royale (2000). US film industry lawyers note that Hunger Games is about a violent last-man-standing competition between students while Battle Royale is about the same thing, pretty much, with an identical plot, except US judges haven't seen the latter film and are pretty much a bunch of racists anyway.
