oh, you mean wheelbarrow!

January 30, 2007 at 9:01 am | | crazy figure contest, literature, stupid technology

Ok, another contender in the worst-figure contest:


In case you didn’t know what a wheelbarrow was. No really, this is a real figure in the paper. (Hat-tip to MetaDatta. And Sujit thought that Tetrahedron Letters is a funny journal title, too. Back in undergrad, I thought it was a joke journal. Now I am a co-author on a paper in Tetrahedron, so don’t I look the fool.)

P.S. My favorite part of the figure is the triple equal mark.

  1. I think the biggest question is ‘WHY?’. I used to think that Tet Lett was a journal about things you could make with those little molecular modelling kits they made you buy as an undergrad. Who could make the longest hydrocarbon chain, who could make the tallest molecular eifel tower replical. stuff like that. Now its all about the wheelbarrows.

  2. OK, I have to be completely honest here: I don’t see the wheelbarrow. Are you supposed to cross your eyes or something??
