Stock photos have been getting weirder and weirder these days. I’m not sure why someone would need a photo with a stethoscope to a fake brain, but someone got paid to take that. Well it seems other people have agreed and used the #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob as a way of calling them out on their shenanigans.
These people actually have the job that these actors are trying to do and it’s pretty obvious that the actors were told the wrong things to do.

I sit in a dark room and project code straight to my face while solving complicated problems. This helps me to immerse myself in it and "feel" the code. #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob pic.twitter.com/eMtGurNr5d

I often like to express my severity with a black cardigan and severe bun to intimidate the popular girls who bullied me in high school. You're in my yard now, Jessica. A yard of intelligence. Of silence. Of finger pointing.

This is actually 100% accurate. Every time I write something, my typewriter explodes from the awesomeness. It's getting expensive pic.twitter.com/v2k1nLD3Ze

Innocent bystander: what do you do as a political scientist?
Me: I create world maps in petri dishes. In my spare time I hug globes.

As an ecologist, I can confirm that my days consist of much stethoscoping of trees in an unnecessary lab coat. It’s the only proper way to detect wildlifes. #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob pic.twitter.com/wAEB9YPnUc

Because as an artist sometimes I like to dab the paint all over my face and dreamily stare into space whilst fondling my favourite paint brushes #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob #toomuchsangria pic.twitter.com/E3sbdAzNFx

As a botanist, I am so petrified of plants I cover my entire body in hazmat safety gear. (Except the parts actually touching them, of course).

As an evolutionary biologist, you have *no idea* how hard it is to find tweasers small enough to grab bits of DNA (which is the main part of our job, obvs) #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob pic.twitter.com/xtB7fvKI57

Thanks to #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob I've learned that mathematicians use a *lot* of transparent boards. Some of us have even learned to write on them in reverse so we can stand behind them as we teach. pic.twitter.com/L6F4x22HVl

As an MRI tech I always guide my patients into a highly energized state on the astral plane until their glowing skeletons can provide useful positioning landmarks.

I often hold my slides and stare moodily at them. You know, instead of looking at them under the microscope that's right in front of me. Sometimes I invite a colleague to join me.
