What is BroScience?

Research takes time. Time people don’t have!

If you’re sitting in class right now secretly reading this on your laptop, take a look around. 99% of your classmates wouldn’t even read the cliff notes to Clifford the Big Red Dog. Lettuce be reality.

Say you had to write a 10 page essay on why ole’ Cliffy is so damn big, would you:

A. Visit the local library?

B. Read the material?

C. Hit up girls on Facebook till 4 in the morning. Find barely related quotes off reputable academic resources like AskJeeves. Copypasta. Nine pages double spaced. U mad?

If you chose C,

Congratulations Future Brofesor Brah!

You’re well on your way to a BroScience Ph.D in BS from the University of BroScience! Kudos!

*If you chose A or B, well I guess NASA is hiring, them and Starbucks. Guess which one you’ll be working for!

Here’s Some Cliffs:

BroScience is when someone makes an unsupportable claim, without evidence, support from academic institutions (well maybe Phoenix Online University) or backing from years of non-research.

It is speculation based on gut feelings, presented as fact. Originally coined in bodybuilding circles to explain superstition or progress.

Classic BroScience Examples:
Does eating late make me fat?
Does eating carbs make me fat?

Welcome to the world of BroScience!
