Hello all, I cleaned out my desk at the lab today, and finally had a walk through the city...It was still depressing, and I bought a limecrime lip gloss in black velvet. Because why not. (Insert the whine my empty account just made, lol). I am painting my nails while I write this. I also overate on a whole bag of…

The Kiwi justice system is a bit screwed, as we all might have noticed by now.
Polk salad (or poke sillet): Common dish in some US areas. The dish is prepared from a plant called Phytolacca Americana, or American pokeweed.
Pretzels: Golden brown, tasty, salty, delicious morsels. Sometimes crunchy, sometimes yeasty soft. What is thy secret?

LYE. NaOH. Sodium hydroxide. Something used for highly dubious chemical experiments, or to clean hair, skin…
Did you ever ponder what ascorbic acid actually means, and why we need it?
Or why not everything you eat makes you allergic?
How many ways are there to poison yourself with food?
Why do humans drink milk, and is it harmful?

This is a very hot topic, I know, but let me elaborate on my reasoning and what I think about those two, from the "no shit, Sherlock" to the "WTF is wrong with you" thoughts.
I have so many samples from a huge ass storage experiment, I will blot for a few days. Additionally, I have to re-do most blots I have done a year ago. Because I found out I have to load less protein per lane so that the antibody doesn't die on me.
However, I kind of forgot why I am doing this experiment in the first…
The quote is from Sobek, who came home and showed me a video which he got on the book of faces. He said it was wrong on so many levels, and it had so many positive (urgh) comments, his complaint went under.
I watched it, and it is indeed, wrong on so many levels. On basically all levels, I think.
Not wanting to troll, but I have lost my period once for a whole year. Okay, I was sick, like really sick, and I lost so much weight I looked anorexic.
You got linked to this place, because you wrote a comment, which the receiver does not want to answer. Instead, the receiver decided to let you know how they understood your comment. And maybe you might take this as a hint for some introspection. Who knows?

I have noticed that I have become a racist. I am sorry, it was not my intention. It started slow and harmless.
I live 5 minutes from work. I work in a hospital. There are two traffic lights, one that crosses the street to a park, and one from the park to the hospital. It is 9.30, and I decided to finish some experiments, since I have (officially) 9 weeks to finish my PhD thesis. My mood was already bad, because scholarship…
I am stuck in the lab because my experiment from last Friday is still not done.
It involves centrifugation steps, and LOTS of centrifugation steps.
