This is already sounding like it's going to pan out to be interesting as hell...

SIR, IF YOUR BODY IS FILLED WITH BARIUM, ALUMINUM, AND STRONTIUM, I WOULD ADVISE YOU TO STOP EATING MINE TAILINGS.

I'm studying for tomorrow's midterm and typing up my notes from class. I don't know if I've mentioned how much I love endoplasmic reticulum and the whole ribosome thing, really.

So a little ribosome is chugging along out in the cytoplasm, and it finds a bit of RNA so it latches on and starts cranking out a protein, and at the N-terminus of that protein, there's a signal sequence that says it's meant for the rough endoplasmic reticulum. Just as the protein starts snaking out of the ribosome, a signal recognition particle comes up behind it and gives it a little cuddle

a creepy little cuddle

saying "Shhhh baby, don't do that. Not here. Not now" and puts its hand over the extrusion site for the protein.

And then they just wait like that in a silent embrace, floating in the cytoplasm, until diffusion takes them to the rough endoplasmic reticulum, where a signal recognition particle receptor binds them and the signal recognition particle shoves the ribosome onto a translocator and says "Do it there!" and then the ribosome finishes pooping the protein directly into the rough endoplasmic reticulum.

I don't get it, but maybe I would if I knew who Stirner was?

My apologies for my absence and my failure to write down the SCIENCE GESTAPO shit in a reasonable amount of time.  Lillie has instituted a program of all day meetings in which we are told why we suck, and Jenn and I just had an anniversary, so I've been otherwise occupied at home.

I'll be back when I have a chance.  Shouldn't be long.

I'll look forward to it!

I, too, have been scarce around these parts. Or I feel like I haven't had much to say. School is intense, as I might have expected it would start to be. Luckily, at least on some level, I'm running out of things to take and I won't be able to take this many credits again even if I wanted to.

I also am having unfortunate side effects of a month and a half on Doxycycline, which are essentially that everything is falling apart. I only have about a week and a half left on it and then I'm done, and I hope I can make a pretty fast recovery and rebuild my microbiome without getting overcolonized by anything too malevolent.

That's just what the Huron thought.

Besides, most of the cleaners are Portuguese, which makes them white imperialists.

As someone of Scottish ancestery, I am far more oppressed than them, and thus they are the real racists.

ROLL WITH THIS.  :lol:
