Seeing the never before seen

On the same day I saw the never before visualized haustra of my large gut, Science magazine shows a photo of a single molecule.

Just posting because it's soooo cool! (My colon was cool, too, no sinister characters seen. And my gut looks a lot like the pentacene molecule above. Just sayin'.))

Wow, that is amazing - the molecule that is but I'm glad that there were no sinister characters lurking within.

Happy weekend!

Kia ora e Michael!

Clean tubes eh? Well that dispels a few myths. So does the pic of pentacene. Chemical bonds actually do exist after all! That's another model pinned to the wall!

Good health!

Peace in Harmony

Amazing image! I did not ask to see the inside of my intestines earlier this summer. Glad to have an image to substitute.

Happy school year, Doyle. It sure is October-y for the end of August here in IL

Dear Kathryn,

Thanks, me, too!

Kia ora e Ken,

Well clean for a few hours anyway--I'm back to mucking them up again. Thanks for the words.

Dear Kate,

Happy school year indeed--we just got your Octobery weather today--it's a nice change. I think I'm ready for the new school year.
