Imagine making one of the most important breakthroughs in the history of science at the young age of 24. That's exactly what James D. Watson did with the discovery of the structure of DNA. Talk about shakin' what his momma gave him. His account of the discovery is actually what popularized the "double helix" term that we all know and love today.
I think this picture from @bethdillman is one of my favorites featuring our little Darwin baby romper. These two are so cute and you can just see the love! To snag a nerdy baby onepiece or perhaps a matching shirt for you, follow the link in our bio!
Thank you to @thegeneedit for posting this fabulous photo of @kalerific in our t-shirt! As with everything we sell, this was drawn by me (idea courtesy of cousin @smarnin) and screen printed by my Aunt. This shirt and more are available via the link in our bio. (If you want a women's style shirt in particular, go to www.fragglesandfriggles.etsy.com)
I love emperor tamarins! Don't you? I took a primate class in the anthropology department in college and learned about all kinds of cute and interesting primates. After that class I printed out a bunch of pictures of different monkeys and posted them in my dorm room. My thinking was, *it's hard to be stressed and anxious about school work when you have a cute furry guy like this looking at you!* And, I think it may have worked! 😝
If you are as amused as I am by animals with epic beards and mustaches, you may like our "Beard Diversity in the Animal Kingdom" t-shirt available via the link in our bio.
Emperor Tamarins are a small species of monkey found in the forests of South America. Their name comes from their oversized white moustache, which is thought to resemble that of German emperor Wilhelm II.
NEW SHIRT ALERT! I've been wanting to make a shirt with the Voyager Golden Record for a while now and I've finally made it happen. --------------------------------------------------- 🛰.
The design is beautiful, iconic, steeped in history, and is humanity's attempt at communicating with any other possible intelligent lifeforms in the universe. You can't get much cooler (or nerdier) than that! .
The Voyager Golden Records are phonograph records that were included aboard both Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. The records contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. Those records are considered as a sort of a time capsule.i

Happy September 1st! This month, I'll be debuting even more designs. My favorite one, shown here, says "Just the tip" 🤣 and is an illustration of hands putting the tip of a pipette in to a tube. This shirt is now available in our etsy shop (fragglesandfriggles.etsy.com) and via the link in our bio!
@ashleyltm: This amazing phylogenetic tree tee from @fragglesandfriggles came this weekend! I adore this tee. I highly recommend their shop! 🙃 "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved." -Charles Darwin, On the Origin of Species
I love this quote by Heidi Seltzer from the @superwomenscience podcast! It really speaks to me. I feel the same way and couldn't have described it better. How about you? Is this part of the reason why you love science? As, do you wish you were an explorer?
"I decided to be a scientist, and a big part of that was my curiosity about the world. And interestingly enough, that's the same motivation to be an explorer, to be curious about the world and want to see different places."

Every year my friend @dsporkin invites the 7 of us to her family's house in the Hamptons. It's a wonderful weekend of deep conversation, lady boss advice, girl talk, and general positivity. I love it and look forward to it every year! This was our 9th girls weekend and it's amazing to see how far we've come and how close we've gotten. I'm so lucky to have this lady tribe in my life. Until next year, ladies!
