If this gag seems a bit familiar, you've seen Will Ferrell born on Saturday Night Live.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson made a lot of people (and presumably ducks, cats and bedbugs) angry with a much less than true fact about sex and evolution.  His claim, that sex doesn't hurt any species had many Twitter users jumping to correct him.

And you might be thinking, he's just trying to be positive about human sexuality and say, in his own pseudoscientific way that it's healthy and painless for humans. But... that's actually not true either:

Sure, he's a scientist but cut him some slack, he's not that kind of scientist. He studied astrophysics, how's he supposed to check his facts at all before Tweeting about biology?

Wife's Overheards Of Medical Student Husband

We love our collections of overheards here. Overheards are a great expression of all the crazy kinds of seemingly nonsensical things that we can overhear while out walking around this wild world. Sometimes, you can hear something and instantaneously recognize that no amount of context is going to provide clarity to that conversation. Peoples say some weird stuff. In this case, we have a quick and hilarious collection of things a wife's medical student husband was caught saying.

Twitter Thread Exposing Fish Fraud Is Both Eye-Opening & Revolting

We've got some seriously bad news for fish-lovers. According to a report from nonprofit Oceana, over 20% of 449 fish that they tested were mislabeled, exposing some pretty serious "fish fraud." This is a staggering percentage, especially when considering that less than 1% of fish is tested for fraud. There's a huge chance that the expensive fish you're ordering while dining out is cheap - or even, according to this related Twitter thread from a biology professor, dangerous. There are fish out there that will hurt you to eat. And, as @AwesomeBioTA's class discovered, some of this "fish" is almost too disgusting for words.

Eye-opening twitter thread about professor doing a class on fish fraud | Dr.Jen M @AwesomeBioTA Josue sequenced some red snapper put money on being tilapia and right. Someone owes 5. His lab partner, Juanni, sequenced Atlantic Salmon. Comes back as Rainbow trout. Unsurprising. Not same species AT ALL, but unsurprising.

Entitled Dude Gets Called Out After Falsely Claiming That He Paid His Own Way Through College

Some people are just more delusional than we can ever fathom. Like this guy, for example. It's not a secret in this day and age that college tuition isn't even remotely affordable for most, but this guy went out of his way on Twitter to try to explain how he supposedly managed to pay his own way through his education. 

Twitter users, however, dug up some of his old tweets, and let's just say that he wasn't being especially truthful...
