Please tell me you are aware of Things I Won't Work With. It is an organic chemist's blog of ... insanity.

And great writing, too. An excerpt:

"If the paper weren’t laid out in complete grammatical sentences and published in JACS, you’d swear it was the work of a violent lunatic. I ran out of vulgar expletives after the second page. A. G. Streng, folks, absolutely takes the corrosive exploding cake, and I have to tip my asbestos-lined titanium hat to him."

Pace yourself. There is about a decade of extraordinarily good writing in that blog, and you can disappear into it for a very long time...!
