scientific procedure as it should appear

Moe Lane, who's been guest-blogging at Tacitus and is about to scurry back to real life, links to this hilarious lab writeup. With special thanks to Moe's significant other, who pointed the writeup out.

A quick snippet:

TITLE: Electron Band Structure In Germanium, My Ass

Abstract: The exponential dependence of resistivity on temperature in germanium is found to be a great big lie. My careful theoretical modeling and painstaking experimentation reveal 1) that my equipment is crap, as are all the available texts on the subject and 2) that this whole exercise was a complete waste of my time.
