The occipital lobe is the sight-linked area of the brain. It's also the lower-rear area of it. Which is why teachers often say they have eyes in their back. Next, we shall discuss the connection between sound and time travel. Hint, both are related to temporal manipulation.

Imperfect recognition of Exam Question Sequences induces formation of bullshitosomes on processed cellulose medium.

Results are still inconclusive.

If I'm not quite as talkative lately, it's because exam period started and I am pretty much drowning in material.

Passed Phys Chem too. Mind you, I did so with a grade of 62 - but when out of 45 students who took the exam 23 failed and the largest amount of those who passed did so just MARGINALLY (on the 55-60 range), I'll take whatever I can get.

Calculus grade came in. 88. EIGHTY FUCKING EIGHT.

Words cannot describe my current levels of FWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ^____________^

How can you take entropy seriously when its units are J/K ?
stellarwind: (Default)
But seriously.

Highly fucking approved. With all this flotilla bullshit lately, it's about time some satire emerged. >>;

The exam came and went and I'm pretty certain I passed. I completely fucked one question up and I KNOW I did, but there were three that I could do in my -sleep- and one that I think I got right (silly absolute values). I'm pretty sure I got a few of the true/false questions right - so I expect at least a passing grade.

That's all I really want/need, too.

The first law of thermodynamics is: You don't TALK about thermodynamics!

I am frelling overcalc'd. But I need to practice even more. Exam this Friday. Kill me now. (I'm actually doing pretty well, but still. x-x)


* Edit: Tomorrow?! wtf. I guess I WAS tired and overcalc'd when I wrote this. XD

So. Today in Phys Chem, our professor begins his lecture about the Second Law of Thermodynamics - which loosely implies that the Entropy/Chaos/Whatever in the universe continuously rises... And starts it by mentioning a group of American Fundamentalist Christians who actually went to the Supreme Court of the USA with the demand to revoke the Second Law of Thermodynamics, because, as they stated, "We don't like the implications of this law, and we will not rest until it has been reversed in the courts."

Yes. They want to revoke a fucking law of nature because it doesn't settle with their idea of magical creation. But then, these are the same people who attack evolution because it's 'Only a Theory'.

As one Tim Minchin once said, it's a good thing they say that - Evolution IS only a theory, and maybe they feel just as strongly about other theories, such as, say... gravity... And maybe they'll just float the fuck away.

So. The results of the Physics exam came in. I passed, and not only that, I passed with a frigging 94.

This is after... what. A -week- of studying and that's it?

Good grief. XD

Also, they revealed the sillhouette for the new critter. Zoroark, the Monster Fox PokeMon. He looks like the lovechild of Renamon and Shadow the Hedgehog.

The furries are going to be all OVER this shit.

Exam done. I hope I didn't write utter nonsense.

As far as I'm concerned, you can all go glycoconjugate yourselves.

(Why do so many of these biochemistry terms sound like creative ways to curse people?)

Here's to hoping for a Lugia on GPX+ tonight. With my luck I'll probably end up with Ho-Oh or nothing at all though. >>;

Also, THIS may be the wrongest thing i've EVER frelling seen.

Phyletic gradualism is a macroevolutionary hypothesis rooted in
uniformitarianism. The hypothesis states that species continue to adapt to
new challenges over the course of their history, gradually becoming new
species. Gradualism holds that every individual is the same species as its
parents, and that there is no clear line of demarcation between the old
species and the new species. It holds that the species is not a fixed type, and
that the population, not the individual, evolves. During this process, evolution
occurs at a slow but constant rate; for this reason, it is known as evolution
by creeps (as opposed to punctuated equilibrium, or “evolution by jerks”)

Evolution by Creeps... as opposed to Evolution by Jerks.

For some reason, I find that RIDICULOUSLY amusing. <<

Things I run into while cramming in MORE Cell to Organism studying.

"This little bugger is called a Waterstrider - and if its kind had a bit more brain, they'd probably treat it as some kind of a theological figure."

"Actually, I have another picture of a pair of water striders... creating the next generation on the water's surface... but for consideration of politically-correctness, I will refrain from showing it."

My chemistry prof. in action. The guy wins worlds. XD

Another fine example: This was a month or so back, when in the middle of a lecture, precisely when he said "This X...", alarm klaxons went off in the lecture hall due to some inexplicable reason. Without a pause for confusion, he says "I'm terribly sorry. It's NOT this X."

And while we wait for the klaxons to shut up so class can resume, he walks up to the blackboard and writes down, in large letters "So, Who's the Composer?"

Best. Class. Ever.

I'm 32 miles from Holon, I've got a full bag of A4 paper, half a pack of Licorice Mentos, it's dark, and I'm wearing sunglasses.

Hit it.

I just realized who my Calculus lecturer reminds me of.

Lev Andropov, the Russian cosmonaut from Armageddon. XD

A certain amino acid by the name of Cysteine has a Sulphur-Hydrogen side-group at the tip of its R-chain (being the side chain that isn't the primary Amine or Carboxyl group). Under certain conditions (oxidation, specifically), two of these R-groups may connect, emitting a water molecule and forming a covalent bond between two sulphur atoms.

These bonds are called Disulphide bridges... or SS Bonds.


Apparently people whose hair is curlier simply have more SS bonds in their hair keratines - the amino acids that form them form SS bonds more readily.

... In other words, my hair is a Nazi.

... The fact my last name is Deutsch makes things even more lol. >>;;


... I swear that Cell to Organism lectures make me feel instantly better. >>;

I've been hideously mood-swingy since Thursday for reasons I don't feel like writing about in an open entry. And today, during a chem lecture I literally was fighting back tears for the very same reasons. I felt utterly hideous.

Then we had a Cell to Organism lecture and the lecturer mentioned a single-celled organism named Dictyostelium discoideum , which displays a particularly fascinating trait: In conditions of lack of food, huge masses of Dictyostelium flock together and form a mock-multicellular slug-like organism, in which each of the cells serves a different function and the mass crawls off in search of more food sources. When such a 'slug' finds a location where the conditions are right, it transforms into a stalk-like structure with a fruiting body (similar to a mushroom, almost) which scatters spores. As the multicellular critter dissolves slowly, under the right conditions these spores 'sprout' into new single-cellular Dictyostelium , and the cycle begins again.

That was -so- awesome, it made me feel much better almost instantaneously.

... I'm a complete and utter geek.

Today is so damn full of schedule holes for me it's not funny anymoar. Seriously.

At least O-Chem doens't start until the 10th week of this semester so I have a few weeks in which I can get decent sleep and wake up at a decent time on Monday/Tuesday. I have a two hour gap between From Cell to Organism (oh my dohg, I KNOW today was just the introduction but I already HAVE this background >>) and a two-hour long Chemistry practice session, followed by another hour-long gap and then two hours of effing Java. WHY?!



SO happy I have a laptop.

Starts the day at 9 AM with Calculus. Approximately three hours of being reintroduced to the basics of functions by a man with a Russian accent so thick you could probably use it as insulation material (can't find any faults aside from that, though). Following that, we were supposed to have this random lab.

So, here I go to find the lab building (with my nonexistent sense of direction, lols) and when I finally locate it, I find it... well, empty. XD Save for two or three other confused students who have no clue what is going on either. When we eventually asked the only person who was around at the time who wasn't a fellow student what a hell was going on, he informed us that our labs don't start until a month and a half from now! XP

Nice three hour-hole in the schedule there! So, off goes the group of us to find out if the physics practice session that was supposed to happen after that lab actually happens (I mean, what the hell is the point of a practice session when there weren't even lectures on the material?) - and yes, as it turns out, there was.

On the whole nice waste of three hours which i had to spend being stuck on campus and Tetris my way out of boredom.

And then the physics practice thing happened. It was ridiculous. The guy talked too fast making the assumption we have any clue just WHAT the fuck was he jabbering about (Well, it's only a 45 minute long practice session) - mostly about integrals and deriviates and... yeah.

At this point I am extremely pissed off at Isaac Newton for coming up with this Differential/Integral shit, and wondering vaguely just why it had to be an APPLE that fell on his head rather than... I dunno. A Grand Piano or something.

THAT would have saved me a lot of headache.
