schmer·oid (smîr'oid', směr'-) n. : Aggregate of cells, that vaguely ressembles a sphere, resulting from mistreating your tissue culture. They are thought to have mystical powers to differentiate into anything, including brain, kidney, ipod or a rock, provided you pray to the right gods. But mostly, they are just balls of cells. If you count them, sometimes you can be rewarded with a cell paper or a microscope-induced headache.
functional definition: -ability for self-denial -ability to solve differential equations
see also: transit-pimping cells, commited prudo-genitals and terminally disoriented cells.
