And about this skin...

We want a new one. SO.
We need to pick a picture that we want. We can make it similar to this skin though, so I don't have to rewrite the coding and so on. It'll be the same size.. Oh. Bell. *to be continued*
... as the picture at the moment, so sometime when I have more time I'll get this picture and see what size it is and if there's a background image and so on. More a holiday project than exam-time project I think.

Thiomagarita Namibiensis - ick.

Thiomargarita namibiensis are a coccus proteobacterium that are visible to the naked eye. Ooh, that's interesting! There's another type that are as well, but I can't remember their name. : (

You know what coccus means? You don't, eh? It's one of the many morphologies of bacteria. It's the spherical one.


That would make a good quiz question:
Are all bacteria micro-organisms?
NO! Hahahahahahaha! Completely insane! Deranged.

Electrons are submicroscopic (haha to those who believe [foolishly] that electrons can be seen through and electron microscope)! Hahahahehehehahahaha!

What's that?
Oh, it's just a thiomargarita nambiensis.

In Memory of Time not yet Lost

I don't really have time for this. I don't have time for it at all. But, nonetheless, I will cast away hours and comment on the patterns made by the sun on the water, as all those precious moments sink to their watery grave. And maybe even go for a swim, if it's warm enough.

I'm not sure if that made sense or not. Not to worry.

See, there. Five minutes, gone.
