Weekend Nerd Updates and New CUP Photo Info

1) I saw Lazer Tag in Macy’s. I wanted it. Badly. The Hubby didn’t agree to the purchase. I almost had a temper tantrum in the store like a two year old. 2) Later at Target we were walking through the 50% off Halloween aisles, and I managed to convince The Hubby to try on …

Love: A Sad Science Story

A nice woman named Amy was giving away postcards.  You receive the postcard, take a picture with it and then send the picture back to her. It sounded like kind of a fun pen-pal deal-eo and I decided to do it. Here’s the postcard she sent me: So I took a picture. Or six. And may …

Biology Pareidolia

Forget Mary in the grilled cheese sandwich Jesus in an MRI scan; my officemate and I saw a seriously spooky image today.  We both saw something, but we can’t agree on what exactly we saw.   What do you think: Does this sunlight reflected off of a glossy-covered industry journal onto the ceiling looks more like …

Glenn Beck Chloroplast

I… I don’t know why… But, it’s Glenn Beck as a chloroplast, and if that doesn’t meet the inclusion factors for a biodork blog (sarcastic liberal humor + plant biology = NERD WIN), I don’t know what else would. Seen on Comments from Left Field And just for fun, and comparison, a real chloroplast: Pick …

Oh, Ray Bradbury!

I don’t post a lot of NSFW (not safe for work) content on this blog, but this…this is completely, awesome and worth the NSFW rating. Disclaimer/Warning: An intelligent woman sings very graphically about wanting to have sex with an intelligent man.  If the idea of an intelligent woman having sexual desires offends you, you may …

Mario on My Mind

I am jonesing to play Super Mario Bros 3 on NES!  That must be why I noticed this: The blog Guys On A Couch is on WordPress’s Freshly Pressed today, and in the featured post they had a link to the 7 Ballsiest Ways Anyone Ever Quit Their Job from Cracked.com, which features this awesome …

I find God at work.

Nerdery at work… Look – God In A Bottle! Apparently we diluted him in PBS back in 2007. And who signed off on this?  JCS?  Oh my God-In-A-Bottle, it was Jesus Christ, Superstar! God’s love and mercy were quantified at 8.103 mg/mL, and while we don’t currently have an expiration assigned, I’m sure we could …
