Public Service Announcement

You know those vials in the freezer? The ones that would really love to have a date with some propanol/hexane before getting shot into the HPLC? The fish scales sitting in envelopes begging to have their rings counted?  The bird feathers you really think you should spec just because they're there?  If you don't know what question you want to use them to ask, they're not data, they're a waste of time.

Thank you for listening to this announcement.

Had this been a real emergency, your PI would have run screaming into the room waiving those vials in the air.
