Why non-native English speaks should have english speaking proofreaders

Posted Sep 07 2008 8:37pm

steve_icon_medium.jpg Oh you crazy non-English speaking people... please please please take the extra effort and get someone like me with a dirty mind to proofread your papers. And Editors... get your mind INTO the gutter and things like this won't happen.

It all starts innocently with this perfectly normal sounding setup:

Chem. Commun., 2007, 1733 - 1735, DOI: 10.1039/b614147a Electrochemical synthesis of metal and semimetal nanotube-nanowire heterojunctions and their electronic transport properties

Dachi Yang, Guowen Meng, Shuyuan Zhang, Yufeng Hao, Xiaohong An, Qing Wei, Min Ye and Lide Zhang

Metal and semimetal nanotube-nanowire heterojunction arrays have been achieved by sequential electrochemical-deposition inside the nanochannels of anodic aluminium oxide template with a layer of Au thin enough to leave the pores open.

Neato, Eh?! This is where it all goes horribly wrong:

Uh oh... cunt. uhhh huh huuuh heh huh huh.... I think I'm going to start a Beavis and Butthead knockoff where we read science papers. Maybe Mystery Science Theater 3000 would be a better show to knock off. meh... hehe... cunt.
