"Fuck the damn creationists I say it with authority,
because kicking their punk asses be me paramount priority.
Them wack-ass bitches say, "evolution's just a theory",
they best step off, them brainless fools, I'll give them cause to fear me.
The cosmos is expanding every second, every day,
but their minds are shrinking as they close their eyes and pray.
They call their bullshit science like the word could give them cred,
if them bitches be scientists then cap me in the head."
Totally unrelated, but i pulled this gem from slashdot commenting on recent stories about transgenic mice: "so just for the record, we can make super strong fearless immortal mice that can sing, regenerate body parts, sniff out landmines, and have partial human brains. scientists don't mod their computer cases, they mod their mice!"

#1 I've been single-stranded too long! Lonely ATGCATG would like to pair up
with congenital TACGTAC.
#2 Menage a trois! Ligands seeks two receptors into binding and
mutual phosphorylation. Let's get together and transduce some signals.
#3 Some dates have called me a promotor. Others have referred to me as a
real operator. Personally, I think I'm just a cute piece of DNA who is still
looking for that special transcription factor to help me unwind.
#4 Highly sensitive, orally active small molecule seeks
stable well-structured receptor who knows size isn't everything.
#5 There must be a rational way to meet a date! I'm tired of hanging out in
those molecular diversity bars, hoping to randomly bump into the right
peptide. I want a molecule that will fit right onto my active site and
really turn me on. I'll send you my crystal structure if you send me yours!
#6 Gene therapy graduate. After years of producing nothing but gibberish,
I've shed my exons and ready to express my introns. All I need is a cute
vector to introduce me to the right host.
#7 My RNA, I'm sorry I misread your UAAUAAUAA and inserted three tyrosine's
when you repeatedly asked me to stop. Something got lost in the translation.
Please forgive me.
#8 Naked DNA with sticky ends seeks kanamycin-resistant plasmid. EcoR1 sites
#9 Uninhibited virus seeks reason to make me shed my protein coat.
#10 This very selective oligonucleotide has been probing for just the right
target for long-term hybridization.
#11 Mature cells seeks same who still enjoys cycling and won't go apoptotic
on me. Let's fight senescence together!
#12 I'm a prolific progenitor with great potential for growth
and self-renewal. Call me if you're a potent hematopoietic factor who still
believes in endless nights of colony stimulation.
#13. I don't always express myself of the surface, but I'm looking for a
signal that you appreciate my complexity. Send me the right message that
will penetrate my membranes, turn on my protein expression and release my

Guillaume as Freddy (with Rob laughing his ass off in the background)
Scarriest couple, the dead baby wand was temporarly replaced with a beer bottle
Still smooth with the ladies. Alenko will probably look like that when he's old.
Best costume. Apparently even the fabric is the real deal.
what is the stewardess doing with this massiv geezer? aiiiiight
this pirate prefers shorts
Alenko dedicating his life to God and the Ottawa Senators

Seems like microsoft needs to address linux directly, they quote lots of "3rd party" sources, haven't had alot of time to go through it myself.

- Nature now has a free podcast. Check it out.
- Are microRNAs ancient remnants from an RNA-world arms race? Viruses produce miRNAs to manipulate the host cell during infection. Likewise cells can make miRNAs of their own as an anti-viral defense. The latest findings are reviewed in Molecular Cell.
- Just in time for Halloween - vintage drug ads! Very entertaining in a sci-fi horror kind of way.

Since most of us mortals will never achieve such heights of nerdness on our own merits, buy some geek gear instead.

Supposedly they have patents pending, but I haven't yet been able to find them in either the US or European databases. I also couldn't find anything on what's acutally in the solutions.

IA updates are in.
Also found a ton of fairly decent competition for the bayblab in some other science blogs:
Simple trend (biotech bizz)
Molecular approaches to cancer
Humans in science
Longevity in science
Science, Politics and Ethics
Uncovering and discovering
Life Science tools of the trade
The scientist errant
Science Nerd depot
The eyes have it (?)
It will take me sometime to figure out which ones I will actually read regularly and which are just crap.
WARNING: These blogs are not intented to substitute or replace following the goings ons of the BAYBLAB, they are mearly mentioned here to augment science surfing pleasure.

Plaid camouflage. That's so 90s.
I'd make a witty fashion comment, but I'm too scared to mess with this guy...
Nothin' like a shot to the kisser to start things off...
Defending his M.Sc. thesis - "Guerilla warfare tactics for Eastern Ontario farm fields"...can you spot the Tang?
"I shot you!" - "I shot you first!"- "No I did!" Either way - you're both dead.
Don't mess with team Edge...
It sure was fun to finally get out of the lab and shoot guns at each other!
Zero casualties incurred. Minor collateral damage.
