Just messing around with timelapse on my GoPro. This is only about 2 hours before the battery died. Maybe tomorrow I'll set it up for 24hr and plug it into a nearby computer for power.

Nice, but did I see people EATING in the lab??? Tsk, tsk! What would OSHA/Environmental Health & Safety have to say about that? Maybe you should put the camera in a different location next time (so there's no "evidence")
EHS says that the desk area is food safe. They even gave us stickers to put on the microwave and mini fridge that say FOOD ONLY.
I like how the movement in the tank mimics the movement of grad students in the lab. Tank=Lab?
Brian, you guys are lucky! Our EHS would never allow that at Ohio State. So there's no concern about bringing lab goobers to the desk area via lab coats, lab notebooks, pens, etc., eh?
There's always a risk. But that risk is the same if you walk down to a cafeteria with your bacteria encrusted clothes too :P I do lots of hand washing! And honestly, I think the lab is probably a lot safer and cleaner than the hospital cafeteria. Who knows what all of those sick people are leaving behind on the tables.
