“Another failed experiment.”
PCR tube 1 takes a drink of ethanol from a pipette tip.
PCR tube 2: “Drinking away your sorrows? What’s wrong?”
PCR tube 1: “…I failed…at PCR”.
After much more drinking…
PCR tube falls over drunk, spilling contents everywhere.
It’s not your fault you failed, you were made with low quality plastic.
