Golgi lyrics

I just want to congratulate Professor Science on some of the best sci-pop lyrics I've ever heard.

"Where I like to go when things get awfully chaotic
And I want to feel a little more eukaryotic.
On the endomembrane system inside of a cell,
There's a groovy little organelle.
It isn't a place you can find in an atlas,
That's right, you guessed it: the golgi apparatus."

Nuff said.

Traffic cones have feelings too you know

I like this photo.

I don't know why, but I saw it out of the corner of my eye, and my brain said, "Those traffic cones are alive! Look at them - they're trying to hold up that huge pile of rubble. It's nearly breaking their poor plastic backs, but they're standing firm. They're holding their ground. Without those traffic cones, a whole street might have been swamped in smashed up bits of tarmac. Well done those traffic cones, well done."

Thanks to a man who calls himself Fishmonk for my morning's entertainment.
