They are beautiful aren't they, for such simple little anucleates.
Oh they may be anucleates....but they ain't simple! Don't you be calllin' my RBC's simple boy!! (Southern accent implied). :P
All those fancy words....hopefully you still converse with us low-folks in little hick towns?Say, do you have that gelato recipe?Did you know I have a logger named Chad living in a trailer in the back yard? (really, no kidding.)I am hick, hear me curse.
Simmers, As you mentioned you have photographic proof of my humble beginnings...so I can never forget my roots. :)Vanilla Milk Gelato:2 cups milk1 vanilla bean split and scraped4 egg yolks 3/4 cup sugar1 cup creamPut the milk and vanilla over medium heat until almost boiling...in a seperate bowl beat together the egg yolks and sugar. Take the milk off the heat, whisk in the egg mixture. Return to heat, mix for 3-4 mins until it thickens slightly, remove from heat. Add the cream, allow to cool. Discard the bean. Pour into metal bowl and stir at 1h intervals until it is scoopable. You can add a couple teaspoons of vanilla extract if you want a stronger vanilla flavour. Voila!That would be awesome if there was a logger named Chad living in your yard. Or if you had recently shot a raccoon from the porch. P.S I like to use 2 vanilla pods. Makes more flecks. Yummmmm.
I wholly approve of the electron microscope image. MacroNerd
I always thought being a Natural Killer cell would be pretty badass...I was told I was a complete dag/nerd for that in first year :-)
Right on! Thanks for taking the time to type out the recipe...I've been thinking about it.Nature nerd: one day soon, Future Shop will carry a camera with a scanning electron macro setting. In fact, it'll be disposable.Aystole: "That would be awesome if there was a logger named Chad living in your yard."No, really...I'm not kidding.
Simmers speaks the truth. I've seen his trailer. "Bring out the Chad!"
NN--I thought you'd appreciate that! It's taking your macro obsession one step further...DF--I am continuously chastised for being a nerd...but really when you're in a pack of them it's a little of the pot calling the kettle black. :) Last night we were out at the pub celebrating 250 years of Guinness and for about 30 mins the conversation was around superconductors and computer processing speeds--it was ridiculous. Not until a couple more pints had flowed did the conversation degenerate to one of the Irish lads trying to teach my buddy how to say "Thin Lizzy" with an Irish accent. Much more appropriate for the event I'd say. Simmers--I would go to great lengths to support a man seeking out how to make gelato from scratch!Ry--Wow. Can you post some pics on your blog?? I actually want to see what The Chad looks like when someone wakes him up...though I suppose he's one of those dudes that drinks beer til three and gets up at 4 to go to work...
There once was an adrenaline-junkie Canadian nurse that lived and worked above the arctic circle...then she crawled into a cocoon and emerged a HUGE NERD.I am personally more of a megakaryocyte guy myself.
Ohhh, so busted. Hmmpf...megakaryocyte eh? That is kinda random...hmmm...
Heh. Yes, I was in a similar conversation about matter and anti-matter over pizza earlier in the year.
Ohhhh anti-matter over pizza raises the nerd-bar that much higher even! Nice one.
