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.

That's the most hilarious and disturbing way I've heard cellular processes described.  Ever.

Hurry up and wait, airline food, army chow, and foot funk is making me poetical. I haven't shit in 3 days.

I ATE THAI FOOD 4 HOURS BEFORE MY WORKOUT.

I COULD WRITE A FUCKIN' NORSE SAGA.

I read this and Ride of the Valkyries started playing in my head.

Man, it has been a while since someone made me wish we had an ignore feature here. Congrats.

We do, you have to go to your Profile button and hover over the Modify Profile button.  It's at the bottom of the list.

I dunno, I like LMNO's brand of tyranny.  A little less vicious, a littl emore FABULOUS!



I love everything about this picture.  EVERYTHING. :lol: :lol: :lol:


When I am rich, I will buy a deck of many things and wish for a sandwich.

I liked the otters, they were cute.

That's easy.  All you need is a dog, some furs, and some tree branches, paint them white, and then tie them to the dog. Instant Frostbite Spider!

That kid was an asshole. :lulz:

Yes I see you are throwing the barstool, much as predicted.
Oh. You're not here to communicate. Why didn't you say so in the first place?

You assert I am not here to communicate, and then ask why I did not communicate that at the start.

These assertions might be missing the point, the barstool might be thrown but it does not mean it is on target. So far the assertions as to who I am or am not, what my motivations are have all been spoken by you, and as such I am learning, true not so much about myself, but we are starting to put together a picture of how you react, and that I find informative. I am enjoying this performance you are quite a master of your technique.

Now tell me why do you feel the need to impose your values on others, what benefit do you derive from this desire for control, and is this a constant urge or does it modulate with time?

It could be that you are just producing noise instead of content, and it may be that you are found annoying because of this.

I wonder if he's that organic cotton-candy guru back for a second round? He's got almost exactly the same posting style, minus the telling us how important he is part.

Organic what now?   :lulz:  I missed that guy.

And also boring.

So, this morning, I emailed my proposal for security contracting for my employer.

Also this morning, someone managed to breach the security of the building, entering without being seen, getting passed the interior door and having access to the inner building for 15 minutes today.  He carried no ID and gave a fake address when questioned.

I didn't even arrange for this incident to occur, it was truly 100% random.

Perfect timing! 


Also, has anyone seen this?  It's the entire history of the Soviet Union set to the Tetris theme song.
