What does dry labbing mean?

Dry labbing is when one claims to do research, but in reality just guessed the conclusion, or you copied the results of someone who actually did research and said they were your own. If you are dry labbing, you are cheating.

An application of the term that I have heard of that might be a bit different than what most people think of when they hear it is: in a fast food restaurant I work in, it is a terminable offense for an employee to make up temperatures of food stuffs eg. certain items need to be kept at 300 degrees, and you can get fired for just making up that number to avoid having to actually take the temperature of the food. Making up that number is called drylabbing
