Thank you very much, you have just managed to motivate the whole lenght of that biotechnology course I took a few years back. That viruses were the originator of, well, mitokondrier in Swedish - the ATP factory I mean - is something I have already endorsed, but this was really taking it to the limit.
And I must also say that I like the thought. Just think... as we live, we carry with us all the genetic material right back to the start. The possibilites that come of this are somehow comforting.

Mitochondria, in English.

Two ideas which disagree so fundamentally can only really be described as hypotheses, but damn it if they aren't powerfully interesting ones.

As Transient would say, Virology > Mortician.

(Then again, that isn't a very fair comparison.)

No, the viruses might sue you if they heard about it. Or take it to the press in a tearswelling story about how they have had their personal integrity molested, if they happened to be Swedish viruses.

I became interested in this whole concept of junk DNA from the very first time the teacher mentioned it. I mean, nature has this way of sorting out everything that carries around too much that isn't of use to the creature in question, evolutionary dead ends are quite literaly dead. Naming all those pieces of code we carry about "junk" sounded to me like cutting a big hole in that idea... we have had millions, even billions of years to produce mutations with less junk codes, but the bastards don't seem to have anything on the rest of us.
Nah, never trust something in your own body that doesn't seem to do anything. It's up to something.

Hey, I forgot to ask in the last post, the latest date mentioned in the article was in 2003 - how up-to-date is it?
And do anyone know where there is more information - i.e. red hot new information - on this?

I'm trying to decipher this! THIS IS SCIENCE, LADDY!

Deep sea creatures are a fucking mystery, even now.

Wow, blind.....give it some glasses and we could re-name it Transient.


There's a small deep sea fish that I forgot that has the fastest bite in the world. ....like it could gulp it's prey in 1/1000 of a second or something. And I can't find a site for it.....

Deep Sea creatures are awesome. They've got to be the strangest looking things I've seen.

And why why why didn't they name them black stars or black globes when they had the chance?

Hear that sound? That is the inordely march of a depressingly large horde of people all claiming, basically, that we are meddling in things man were not meant to wot of. Anyone wanna bet on how long it takes before God, through his earthly representatives naturaly, start shouting about how wrong it is?

Well, God gave us brains to use. I bet Pat Robertson will be pissed though.

This is not an article but a science question

Aim: To know the reason for the observation

Apparatus: A computer screen, a guitar (dadgbe works better, or even lower).

Theory: I am guessing string vibration along with persistence of vision.

Procedure:
Sit in front of your comp screen close enough.

Catch your guitar straight (perpendicular to the ground) with the head pointing up, and the fretboard pointing towards you.

Now start rotating the guitar slowly (with the right side coming towards you and left side going away).

Keep rotating till the lowest (d) string is just seen against the screen (IE it
should be silhouetted against the comp screen)

Now catch the guitar still with your right hand and pick the lowest string with ur left hand.

Observe the string at the neck (the part silhouetted against the comp screen).

Observation: The string is seen to be a wave with different phase.
IE it seems like a wave rather than a vibration.

Reason: WTF?????

Note: The magnitude of the normal vibration of the string gives a wave form against time. I am guessing this wave is equivalent to the observed wave (from the expt)


YEAH SCIENCE IS FUN

Getting back to my usual self...why does this happen.
