An odd request
Please send me random questions. Not ones you actually want answered by me, or even ones that make sense. I just want random questions. It’ll be clear later what I’m doing with them later.
A few notes from the trenches: I had no earthly idea how much time this was going to take. I’m going to really miss CFB this year. NFL, actually not so much. I bought a 12 pack of beer a month ago. I still have 9 of them I’m extraordinarily happy that Tom Waits has an album out. I hope he tours. I’ll find the time to see him There seems to be a very high negative...
No One Cares About Your Car Fish →
“Mainly, though, car-fish aren’t really intended for witnessing. They’re not witnessing tools, they are tribal symbols. The Jesus-fish on a car is not an invitation, but a declaration of tribal allegiance. It’s a signal that the driver of this car is an “Us” rather than a “Them.” And that Us-Them symbolism has far more to do with conflict than with any attempt at conversion. This is true...

There is nothing unusual about Governor Rick Perry. Uneducated fools can be...– Richard Dawkins at the WashPost’s “On Faith” site, explaining that denial of evolution ought to disqualify anyone from higher political office. However, the problem is not the venal politicians — and when I personally condemn the system, I want to make clear that many in the party I vote for...

That the post run “shower beer” is bad for you. Not sure I can go on like this much longer.
acmesalesrep asked: So, um, what can you tell us about glycolitic pathways? [ducks]
dennymayo asked: GLUCOSE 6-P IS THE GREATEST OF ALL GLYCOLYSIS PRODUCTS. DISCUSS.
Ask box is open
Because if I have to spend all night learning glycolitic pathways without a break I will KILL MYSELF AND I WILL TAKE YOU ALL WITH ME!* *spoken in your best Catherine O’Hara voice.

3 hour lecture on glucose metabolism
Sweet chocolate jebus. I am in physical pain.
Because I'm a GIANT nerd....
In Biochem, we were being lectured about something that essentially boiled down to vitamins. So every time the professor said “flavins”, I really, really wanted to yell the word out in my best Professor Frick/Jerry Lewis voice.

GET YOURSELVES SOME SCHOOLING WHILE THE GETTING’S GOOD. Worth the money? Probably. Worth what I had to put up with this morning? Doubtful.

I’m pretty sure that had I spent the last two weeks in an opium den, I’d be just as well prepared as I am now.

Photoshop help needed
Need some stupidly simple photoshop work done. Discretion a must.
You have the misfortune of being one of my patients, many years from now, and you - for example - have a bone sticking out of your leg that needs tending, I certainly hope I still remember the damn cytokine epo JAK/STAT signaling pathway. From what I gather, it’s crucial to saving your life.
one week in, what have we learned?
There are people who prey on young students getting large student loan checks, and don’t know how to spend money. Many of them have the same email domain that I do. Getting an iPad seems to be a good decision The “I’ll walk to class since I’m so close” plan has some serious holes. I call it “August in the South” There are some scary smart kids in my...

If I was going to have to re-listen to 4 hours of lectures of biochemistry lectures, I figured I’d kill two birds with one stone. Drove over to part of the race this fall that I can’t seem to make up my mind about. Since the technology is letting me workout while I study, I’ve been able to train quite a bit more than I had planned. hours 1-3? Marvelous. There’s a nice...

Sorry doc. When you put your PowerPoint slides in comic sans, I just cannot take anything you say at all seriously. Really. I don’t care how many papers you’ve had published. Change the font.

The “oh my god when did I move to Tatooine” heat finally broke, so I pulled off the treadmill and actually ran outside on actual roads. It was wonderful. It’s my first run in the new neighborhood, and much more dense urban, so I was just kind of feeling it out. Didn’t break any speed records, but set a PR in “hey, lookit that crazy white dude!” calls.
