With this sub I want to encourage more humour and self-criticism in science. People can take science much too serious. Feel free to give a thorough answer to a silly question or reverse.
In my scientific career, I noticed that answers are different, depending on the level. Reality is often much more complex and different than expected. Censorship, peer-reviewing, futurism and corruption have reduced the self-correction of science. This all breaks science apart.
