You know you've worked in a lab too long when...

You know you've worked in a lab too long when... 

You can't watch CSI without cursing every scientific inaccuracy.

Liquid nitrogen is only half as dangerous as you thought.

You have to check the web to find out what the weather is outside.

You realize that almost anything can be classed as background reading.

Warning labels invoke curiosity rather than caution.

You decide on conference to attend by the quality of the food served.

You've used dry ice to cool beer.

You can no longer spell normal words, but have no trouble with spelling things like immunohistochemistry or deoxyribonucleic acid.

You have a callus on your thumb.

You can open the toothpaste with one hand.

You wash your hands before and after using the washroom.

When you hear Tween, you think of the surfactant, not the age group.

You can identify organs on road kill.

You've never worn a clean lab coat.

You don't fear rodents. Rodents fear you.

You flinch when you hear the word "significant."

When your bananas go bad and you get fruit flies, you can't help but check their eye color.

You own Invitrogen t-shirts, and actually wear them.

You refer to your children as the F1.

You've used Kimwipes as Kleenex.

You say "mills" and "migs".

You've played Battleship using pipet tip boxes.

The scent of latex reminds you of work, not play.

Your parents still have no idea what you do for a living.
