the grad student teaching this linguistics course has said “…but that’s just a theory, because we can’t test it for all kinds of ethical reasons” four times in the past hour and it’s making me start to worry if we’ve been neglecting mad linguists as a form of mad scientists for too long

The funny thing about treating “mad social scientist” like it’s a parody of something is that the mad social scientist actually used to be one of the main mad scientist archetypes in old school sci fi.
Heck, for a time it was arguably the main mad scientist archetype; mad scientists manipulating human society on a grand scale – for purposes both benevolent and malign – using fringe psychology and statistical fortune-telling was practically a cliché, of which Isaac Asimov’s recurring “psychohistory” plot device was merely one prominent example.
Predictably, that stopped being a thing at about the same time that sociology stopped being regarded as a “hard” science, which just goes to show that the arbitrary division of hard and soft sciences continues to ruin everything.

So Why do the Fenton’s have a dungeon complete with Iron maiden in their home?
Tumblr media
Here’s my theory.  The Fentons must make other things besides ghost hunting gear right?  There’s no way they could have survived on a ghost hunting income when they went years without ever seeing a ghost until the portal was finished.  So they must have also invented other stuff until they saved enough money to put more focus into their passion projects.  
Maybe they even took commissions 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
Client: “I’ll pay you to build an electric Iron Maiden, complete with functional locks for me.  It’s for... Uh..”
Jack: “Is it about ghosts?”
Client: “no?”
Jack: “Then I don’t care.  Put down the deposit as advertised. You can pick it up on Wednesday.”
Wednesday comes around~~~
Maddie: “Ugh, Jack You’re never gonna believe this.  Our buyer got arrested!
Jack: “By ghosts?!”
Maddie: “By police. Sure is strange how many clients we get turn out to be criminals. What a weird coincidence. Anyway, What do you wanna do with the Medieval containment device we built?”
Jack: “Hmmm..... We could use it in case the kids ever act up?”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Fentons are the inventors who will build anything you ask, provided you pay them.  The only question they’ll ask is “Does this have anything to do with ghosts?”

So I made a “Which Classic Lit Mad Scientist Are You?” quiz! It’s very simple and may be subject to editing, but I hope everyone enjoys!

What makes mad scientists mad is not their dubious morals or their lofty ambitions, it’s that they try to minimize the space between hypothesis and implementation. Like you’re trying to build a death ray? Great, cool, you can probably get a grant for that. But your prototype death ray worked just one time and you’re already testing it on humans first? Buddy.... you gotta start with fruit flies and work your way up to that, pal

Happy Halloween to all the mad scientists filled with hubris, horrible creations from labs who kill their creators, arch nemesis and narrative foils, people with an excessive amount of beakers, people who watched megamind and were never the same, and people who’s favourite phineas and ferb character was doctor doofenshmirtz

[ID: Two digital drawings of Victor Frankenstein. In the first they're smiling, holding a stack of books to his chest as he gestures with his other hand, smiling brightly. They're colored with shades of light blue. In the second he's a little older, standing slightly slouched, defeated, arms hanging limply at his sides. His expression is of tired worry, with a hint of apathy. They're colored in darker, muted blues. Both have a muted light blue background./End ID]
