The Elusive Verofruit

Today was the big revealing of the iPhone 5.  Some estimates predict 8 million sales this quarter. If I had a calculator I could calculate some numbers too.  I decided this was my chance to outdo Apple and put them to shame.  I’ve been planning today for a while now, and as...

Finding a Persimmons Fuyu with my Soul Mate

I was supposed to start up a new project at the IMHR on August 1st, so I got up early today and headed off to the lab. I paid the bus fare with cash because I only had a July bus pass. Little did I know–until I got to the lab–that today is July 30th, not August 1st. Not really...

Dragonfruit with Fungus

Rating: 3/5 stars In my first review a couple weeks ago I looked at the slimcado, a horrible fruit from Florida that my sister later told me are meant for dieting, which would explain both the name and the horrible taste. I was a little worried that my second fruit would also end up tasting...

The Slimcado: Florida’s Contribution to the World

Rating: 1.5/5 stars This is me with a slimcado at Hartman’s. On the sticker it says they’re from Florida. I eat avocados for snacks but I didn’t like the slimcado. The texture was a bit like an avocado but a little lighter, and it tasted like water with a faint avocado taste. And it was...

Behind the Scenes at Cryofrog Scientific

I have a cool post coming soon, about an odd bag of milk I bought at Shoppers’ Drugmart. But that post has to wait because I’m waiting for a reply from Neilson. As some of you know, I recently got my master business license for a company called Cryofrog Scientific. And as my friend...

The Vampire Dairies: The Vampire Crisis at Neuroscience 2011: Final Words (Day 6)

In some random week in November of 2011, some 30,000 neuroscientists gathered in this beautiful city—this city of architecture, museums, and Barack Obama. While I came in hunt of vampires, I left with empty hands and a head full of questions. But the important thing is that I came as a lone...

The Vampire Dairies: The Vampire Crisis at Neuroscience 2011: Day 5

Today is day 5 and I hope this makes up for my dismal progress yesterday.  The good news is that I didn’t sleep in, allowing me to dedicate more time to vampire hunting. First thing’s first, after seeing Harry’s pathetic vampire kick, I realized that my friends definitely need some training in vampire hunting. Into the Wild  So for training I brought my friends out into the wild for some training exercises. First off was the National Aquarium. The National Aquarium is famous for the vicious creatures they have, an ideal place to practice vampire hunting. You can see an evil treefrog below, probably getting ready to pounce on us and...

The Vampire Dairies: The Vampire Crisis at Neuroscience 2011: Day 4

Not much happened on day 4 here in Washington, so this is going to be a fairly short post. I slept in again, this time until 4:30 pm, meaning I couldn’t fit much hunting into my schedule. In addition to this, I was not able to get an alternate banana, so I was pretty much going out naked....

The Vampire Dairies: The Vampire Crisis at Neuroscience 2011: Day 3

Day 3 is upon us, and things have already gotten interesting. As with yesterday, I slept in again and woke up alone in the house. I was more confident today because of my protection and my penetration device.  You can see me below with my gear ready for today’s hunt. Holding my banana makes...

The Vampire Dairies: The Vampire Crisis at Neuroscience 2011: Day 2

Today is day 2: November 13th 2011. It started out a little unusually.  I documented the start of it in the video below: As you can see, it’s not safe here in Washington. While I still have not spotted a vampire, I really think I’ll find one within the next few days. I did find a...

The Vampire Dairies: The Vampire Crisis at Neuroscience 2011: Day 1

So I’m at Neuroscience 2011 in Washington DC, it’s November 12th, latitude is 38.88759, longitude is -77.02031. I presented my poster today, and I (possibly illegally?) changed my title and abstract.  It’s “Modulation of ghrelin O-acyltransferase by food deprivation and food...

I had a Bible once

I had a Bible once. In fact, I attended Bible study in the dreary basement of a missionary from Korea. His name was Workhard (seriously). It was during the times where I was uncertain about my life and uncertain about where I was headed, much like many occasions before and after that time....

So what do you say to that, Zack?

According to Zack I’m a cheap-skate because I did not opt to purchase caller ID because I did not think it was worth $6 a month.  Below is proof that I am NOT a cheap-skate: I bought an adhesive lint remover to clean my couch.  Who needs a lint remover to clean a couch except for the...

What I got for free at Sears!

Check out what I got for FREE at Sears!!!  A 5-in-1 orange thing!! Here’s a pic of the orange thing next to a quarter so you know the size of it: This orange thing is actually very strong.  Here it is after I threw it off my 5th-floor balcony: It’s microwave-safe:   And...
