#DistractinglySexy Trends in Response to Nobel Scientist’s Sexist Remarks

Women respond to Tim Hunt's sexist remarks about female scientists

On Wednesday, Nobel Prize winner Tim Hunt resigned from his position as honorary professor at University College London after telling a conference in South Korea that it’s distracting to work alongside “girls” in laboratories because “they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry.”

Since then, the hashtag #distractinglysexy has been trending on social media, as women have been posting photos of the unglamorous life of a research scientist to ridicule the embattled biochemist, who shared the 2001 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology for research on how cells divide.

There were also jokes about history’s most famous female scientists:

Watch This Man Propose to His Girlfriend During Her Last Chemo Session

He shaved his head in solidarity after her second chemo session

A Florida man proposed to his girlfriend who has been undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma on the first day of her last chemotherapy session.

Starting at the 2:50 mark, watch 24-year-old Lucas D’Onofrio pop the question to 21-year-old Tamara Bruzzo in a room at Boca Raton Regional Hospital that was decorated with 100 candles and 60 ballons tied to 60 pictures of the two of them from the last six years that they were dating. She was already dressed up because friends and family were throwing her a Hollywood-themed party that night, the first of several theme parties she had planned for her last five-day session. He handed her a bouquet of 100 roses, and then got down on one knee. After she said yes, the two looked out the window and enjoyed a fireworks display two neighborhoods away that he had also organized for the occasion.

“When he popped the question, I was completely shocked,” Bruzzo said. “It shows no matter what you go thru, good things can happen to you.”

D’Onofrio, who shaved his head in solidarity after her second chemo session, said he organized the elaborate proposal because he “just wanted to do something great for her at the end of something horrible in her life.”

Watch This Reporter Freak Out When Cicadas Attack Her

There has been a lot of buzz about this video

Even though KSNT reporter Katya Leick was recording her stand-up from a tank at Fort Riley near Topeka, Kansas, surrounded by Army personnel in fatigues, it seemed like nothing could protect her from an ambush of pestering cicadas.

In video that, fortunately for Leick, was not live, she can be seen swatting the insects away and shrieking when they stuck to her face. Also fortunately for Leick — and anyone else who ends up in this situation — experts say the insects are harmless.

Someone Poured Coca-Cola into a Pan of Molten Lead and Thinks the Result Looks Like This Famous Work of Art

Do you agree?

In an experiment that seems like the type of thing a “mad scientist” would come up with, YouTube user TAOFLEDERMAUS” poured Coca Cola into a pan of molten lead and then claims the final product looks like Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.”

It is reminiscent of the viral video in which a tech blogger who boiled an iPhone 6 in Coca Cola.

Crystal Pepsi Could Be Making a Comeback

Pepsi

Will a revived interest in the clear soft drink translate into sales?

People on the internet are campaigning to bring back Crystal Pepsi.

In the past couple of months, competitive eater and YouTube celebrity Kevin Strahle has been one of the most vocal advocates of the “movement,” promoting crowd-funding petitions with the hashtag #BringBackCrystalPEPSI and encouraging fans to tweet at Pepsi, President Barack Obama and late-night TV hosts to get publicity for the “cause.” On Jun. 8, he got this response:

While Twitter users assume the tweet means that there is going to be a Crystal Pepsi comeback, a Pepsi spokesperson would not confirm that to TIME, but added, “We do think Crystal Pepsi fans will be happy with what we have planned.”

The low-sodium, caffeine-free product of the early 1990s was one of the colorless, “new age,” diet-friendly beverages that TIME described in 1992 as a reflection of “the nation’s pro-health, pro-environment leanings” — along with Coca Cola’s Tab Clear, 7-Up and Sprite, which were all attempts to “rival water,” the magazine joked. While Crystal Pepsi has not been seen on shelves since the early 1990s, it appears every now and then on lists of the biggest products fails or history’s greatest flops, including TIME’s own list of the “1oo worst ideas of the 20th century.”

When questions are raised about whether caramel coloring in soda is carcinogenic, TIME has cited the drink’s failure to sell as evidence that “soda companies wouldn’t be eager to change something as integral as color to the consumer experience of cola drinking.” And the taste? As the financial news website 24/7 Wall St. put it, the drink didn’t catch on because, “to many consumers it tasted just like original Pepsi.”

However, TIME previously reported that a Pepsi marketing executive maintained Crystal Pepsi was “the right idea at the wrong time,” so we’ll see if the right time is the present, given the recent enthusiasm on social media.

Check Out Hillary Clinton’s First Instagram

It's very patriotic

Hard choices.

A photo posted by Hillary Clinton (@hillaryclinton) on

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election, launched an Instagram account Wednesday. Her first post is a photo of red, white and blue pantsuits with the caption “Hard Choices” — which is also the title of her memoir. The former Secretary of State modestly describes herself as a “Doting grandmother, among other things.”

The account already racked up more than 32,000 followers at the time of publication — more than any of the other 2016 candidates with verified accounts on the social network, such as Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY),Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R), retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson (R).

Having a presence on Instagram is an opportunity to engage with college-aged and 20-something voters, as “53% of young adults ages 18-29 now use the service,” according to Pew Research Center’s Jan. 2015 report on the demographics of social networking platforms. The study also says “women are particularly likely to be on Instagram, along with Hispanics and African-Americans, and those who live in urban or suburban environments.”
