About

This idea, like all good ones, came from a tweet in response to the #DistractinglySexy hashtag that began trending after a foolish comment from Professor Sir Tim Hunt.

I simply thought many scientists, academics, and students of the sciences would like a clear and concise week-to-view calendar for their desk featuring the blatant reason any of us pursue a career in the sciences, the chance for love to blight our research and prevent a successful grant application.

Once the week is finished, each sheet will make a perfect emergency handkerchief; should any criticism make you, or any of your lab-mates cry.

Risks and challenges

The calendar will be custom designed and I aim to make it available for sale in time for the 2015 academic year starting. This is pending on receiving enough images, finding a suitable graphic designer and printing house. I would like to keep the work creating this calendar in Newcastle, but this can change if proving difficult.
