I'm amazed at how often apologists for vivisection assume science works like the public perception of science flowchart. The bottom flowchart is a more realistic portrayal of what actually goes on. This was posted to a health journalism blog I follow. Immediately reminded me of the majority of conversations I have with people about animal research.

... and for some reason the image posts really tiny. Here's a link to the blog post, where you can actually READ the text!

Yep. It's never clean and simple.

Yeah I'm in grad school for environmental chemistry. Everyone who asks me what I've been doing this summer can't seem to understand why I can't just knock out my research in the 3 months I haven't had classes...

ETA: the "instrument breaks" part of the chart it total win!
