Science is boring. There’s no way around that. It’s an immutable law of nature, just like the sky is blue or children are idiots.

In order to spice things up a bit, a group of Swedish scientists began adding Bob Dylan lyrics to their scientific work.

It started 17 years ago, when Professors Eddie Weitzberg and John Jundberg wrote an article about farts called, “Nitric Oxide and inflammation: The answer is blowing in the wind.”

First of all, awesome. Second, ever since then, Weitzberg, Jundberg and three others have been competing with one another to see who can place the most Dylan lyrics in their writings.

The person with the most lyrics in their work when the first of the bunch retires wins the bet.

The prize is lunch at a restaurant, so this is pretty high stakes stuff we’re talking about. Though, it’s not as high stakes as it could be.

Professor Weitzberg made sure to mention that,

We’re not talking about scientific papers – we could have got in trouble for that – but rather articles we have written about research by others, book introductions, editorials and things like that.

Oh, well. A little bit of Dylan is better than no Dylan at all.
