Re: Workplace Darwin Awards?

Scene: a 4 desk office of Biology lab space around 2000ish. I was, honest guv, genuinely seeking more up to date figures on variations in muscle anatomy in humans than contained in the lab's very ancient copy of Grey's Anatomy (the anatomy tome, not the later cop show). I put 'Human Anatomy' into a search engine and clicked a likely looking link and my browser was suddenly filled with multiplying pages of PRON!

Fortunately I was alone in the office at the time and none of my female officemates was there. I hurriedly reached under the desk and hit the power button on my G4 power mac. A close run thing.

Though I did have a colleague in mid 90s who was fond of looking up humans and animals doing naughty things in the middle of the lab. He's probably a Consultant in a hospital near you about now.
