Nerd alert!

How sad (or, if you're in my head, AWESOME) that I'm frustrated with the lack of scientific knowledge abounding on the internets.



That is MEIOSIS. Mitosis: splitting into 2 identical cells. Meiosis: splitting into 4 half-cells, and those would be gametes, aka half-buns. JEEZ PEOPLE. (Although props for using bunnies, since meiosis is sexual reproduction.) Here's your mnemonic device for remembering: mitosis, two vowels divided in the beginning, meiosis, four.

ION; I am preparing to leave for Spring Break (FL. horse ranch, wheee!) and tomorrow is one of my most favorite people on EARTH'S birthday, anelith, who is sweet, kind, loving, and has a great sense of humor, and is smart as a tack, and is also one of the most interesting people to have a conversation with EVER. I love you, Anne-Girl!

Have a great next 10 days, and don't break anything while I'm gone! (And if anyone wants to help me knock out my To Do list, that would be super fantastic.) Here, have a song! Freezepop - Less Talk More Rokk, a personal fave on Guitar hero 2. :D

HEROIN! Copious amounts of heroin. Or donuts, which really... is the same thing. :D

Thank you! Have a good week, yourself!

Hmm, from looking at that photo, I think that person did mean mitosis. It does look like the bunnies are dividing into duplicates of themselves.

Have a fabulous time on vacation!

*head desk*

Yes, they meant it, but they're incorrect as mitosis yields TWO cells, not four, which is Meiosis, which was my point?

Also, it's bunnies and the internet and I'm being silly?

Yeah, I got your point. Sorry I mentioned it.

Hey, there! You don't need to peddle away on your Huffy, I'm just reminding you that I'm being a dork about the whole thing! I was head desking because I figured I hadn't been clear in my original post, you see.

*tickles you to make you LAUGH* :D

*laughs*

Ahh, I see. No, you were clear in your original post, but it still made me think about the picture, and after looking at it, I could see how the poster meant mitosis because they do all look exactly the same. So, you see, I'm an even bigger dork.

Sorry, my blood sugar is getting low. Please take the chocolate as a peace offering. If I were there in person, I'd give you the real deal instead, but alas, the virtual stuff will have to do.

Enjoy Florida!

Have a fabulous vacation!

In random news, I saw a "Guitar Hero" House icon yesterday that made me think of you. In fact, all things Guitar Hero now lead me to think, "STONEY!" You are my Rock Goddess. \m/

Thank you!

Oh, I like that. You should think of me as a rock goddess with my plastic controller and sad, suburban mom dreams. HEEEEEE!

Science RULES.

Yay, Spring Break!

And I'm glad you posted your music, so I can remind myself to post mine! I have ten days to get up a selection of Bloc Party tracks for your audial enjoyment, so I don't feel too pressured. ;)

I also have the Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Daler Incentives album with "Hey" on it, tht also has a very, very funny rendition of NIN's Head Like a Hole. I'll upload that, too, on the off chance you'd like to take an ear to that track as well. :D

Oh, they're fun, I'd love to hear that! (I have a thing for covers, so that works for me!)

I LOVE SCIENCE. It's my favorite. *SQUIIIIISH*

Damn you, you science hacks!

Have a good time, bay-bee!

GODDAMMIT, why don't people GET REAL with this stuff?!?!? They should be half-morphed buns, like, just the heads and floppy ears. Well, half of them. The other two can be the back ends. HEEE.

(Um, and don't you want to bury your face in that pile of FLUFF??)

Thank you!! *sneaks you into my case*

YES, ACTUALLY!
*snorfles bunnies*

Except i'm probably as allergic to bunny fur as i am to cat fur and i'd be sniffling and itching and sneezing right fast and have to go *wash*, which my cats just do not get, they're all 'omg, you stopped petting meeeeeee!!* and immediately try to *ruin* my cleanness.

Little furry bastards.

How shall we live with the wrong...weird sexual splitting?
*or...you know...whatever*

*bunny buns. heeeeee!*

Oh, WOE!! I'm so sorry you're allergic. And I swear to all who will listen, one day I will have a Flemish Rabbit (named Moike, or Moira, or something else that sounds Irish, so I can make Buggs Bunny jokes all the time) and I will wear it on my like a shawl.

A living shawl!

Florida horse ranch!! I wanna come! Why can't all of us have spring break from work, too? Have a wonderful time, and thank you for your beta skills and come home with pictures and stories! Please. (so it doesn't sound like a directive)

Aww, I like it when people are the boss of me. It makes me feel like I don't have to be the mama all the time. :D

I will take pictures! The baby is back at the farm, so I will have many peekchures of hee's keesy leeps. <3 horses, YAY!

(The Mister is bringing his work with him, because he wants to pretend it's his spring break, also. Haha.)

Aww, Spock. I <3 him. (And you!!)

I hope you get a lovely, restful, relaxing day filled with lots of love and delicious foods and cat necklaces. (Meaning, the kitties circling your neck while you rest. *G*)

I am bringing a pad and pen to record all the weirdness. CANNOT WAIT!!

I want to smash my face right in the middle and have their fluff on my cheeks. :D

I don't understand maths or science because I'm a girl. It's genetic! (Did your head just explode?) Friend of mine in High School came up with a way to differentiate: Mitosis: you can't have sex with your toes. It makes no sense, and since the birth of the internet is patently untrue, but it did work.

Those bunnies would make great slippers.

The only numbers I understand are 18 and 24. ...karats! *kills self*

Hahahaha, I totally get what the trick with mitosis means, though, so that's AWESOME!

Mmmm, bunny butts are surprisingly stretchy, so yes, I believe you're right. *goes to hell for that one*

How many times can you get sent to hell any way? I mean once you've got a ticket you might as well just live life to the bunny butt stretching limit. What are they going to do? Send you to Hell's Hell?

Ooooo...horse ranch spring break!
Best.Vacation.Ever!

I don't get the chance to ride anymore...ever since my physique decided to turn into Hoss's body double!
-sheesh-
*Bonanza moment*

Anywho...ride like the wind doll!
I'll live vicariously through you for the next week or so.

Somehow I read this entry, and *completely* missed that your spring break was starting!

I hope you're having an excellent time with the fam and the BFF!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
