    there's just so much wrong with it!! Im so captivated!
    • The DNA is not proportioned correctly and I'm pretty sure that's too many bases per turn
    • There's no... actual information in that DNA molecule. Like, it might be something if it were a space-filling model that showed you the atoms and such, but it's not. It's just a Cheeto-textured terrible DNA graphic. The bases aren't even color-coded, and that's the part that's usually important about DNA, the sequence of the bases (hence why DNA is sequenced)
    • If you're working with sequence data, guess what, you just look at long strings of As, Ts, Cs, and Gs. if you look at them at all, which you might not (I usually don't, for example). Usually in a monospaced font so you can align sequences and have them line up
    • What is with his lab gear??? The goggles are okay (although to be 100% honest, I have literally never worn goggles in my grad school career, the stuff we work with just isn't really a danger to the eyes), but he's got this extravagant hood on, as well as that intense mask. If he's in a place where he needs to get so suited up, what's he doing looking at DNA? he should do those things in two separate places!! Do the wetlab stuff that requires the suit in the wetlab area, but then have a separate desk where you can look at your DNA!
    • The implication that the heart monitor output and the other output, whatever it's supposed to be, are related to A) the DNA and also B) the histologic sample
    • The buttons that say ANALYZE and INITIATE SCAN. Yes, just like the buttons I hit every day when I do my work
    • what is that micrograph pic anyway? It kind of looks like hyphae but maybe it's supposed to be neural tissue?
    At least he's wearing appropriate-looking and fitting gloves

    God I can't stop thinking about this picture. It's so magical

    I want to play that new Fire Emblem game!! Everyone loves it! And also the Depression(tm) has made it so I don't care about anything that I would normally care about and the only way to combat that is with novelty sooooo

    Still have unprompted and rather emotionless tears at depictions of people in hospital. Hmmm.

    Also, still angry that the library has one outdated book about IBD and like a hundred "eat only kale and natto and you'll live forever" books

    Oh also they have a few "gut healing diet" books which gets my fucking hackles up. Necessary disclaimer that we don't know everything and some of these may help and eventually lead to other treatments, or be good for non-IBD things, etc. etc., but I find it harmful to present those ideas as proven cures, especially for vulnerable people who maybe just have been told they have a chronic illness......

    Incredibly surreal: at my last gastro appointment, doc and I started talking about a book we'd both read recently (the one about the discovery of Archaea) and doc told me that while he was an undergrad he'd tried to get into Carl Woese's lab as an assistant. Just incredible. My doctor actually interacted with the dude who was instrumental in creating the field I do research in now, 30+ years later. (Semi-relatedly, appointments have become more fun after we started talking about what science nonfiction we'd read recently.)
