    You do. And this really is fascinating stuff.

    But (and that's a big butt), like I've said before you really should bundle all your science shit in one thread instead of creating topic after topic. Just sayin'.

    I threw in my 2 cent toll just to give it a bump. Ain't goin' nowhere otherwise.
