I wonder why hasn't some convicted murderer killed Watson for helping discover DNA.
2003-04-25 11:35:22 AM  
I was wondering why the DNA thing was in today's Google logo...

From the article:

By finding out his own chemical recipe for existence, Man at last destroyed the age old suggestion that life came from some magical spirit or divine clockwork.>/i>

Or the church, perhaps?

And I know it's gonna expect sex tonite.
2003-04-25 12:18:20 PM  
I wish NPR would shut up about this already.. god I hate NPR..
2003-04-25 12:18:41 PM  
I can't imagine what life was like before we invented DNA.
2003-04-25 12:19:31 PM  
DNA - the cause of, and solution to, life

LuckyEddie, Frick has proposed trans-galactic panspermia, saying that the initial proteins needed for life were intentionally deposited here by aliens who recognized that Earth, at that time, had the conditions necessary to sustain life.
2003-04-25 12:22:39 PM  
And it was twenty years ago today, I lost a wristwatch in some Tijuana hooker's cootzie
2003-04-25 12:22:51 PM  
PM Phool

I agree.
2003-04-25 12:22:52 PM  
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery, we will have a special showing of the documentary video, "Someone's in the Kitchen with DNA." Enjoy.
2003-04-25 12:23:48 PM  

There is a little button on the radio....I think it says "off". That might help solve your problem....if not, there sould be one which says "tuning". This one usually works also.....
2003-04-25 12:24:00 PM  
Tonite in honor of this occasion, I will let my DNA partay with Mary Palmer and her five sisters. Then tomorrow go rent Jurrasic Park. Or maybe rent instead 'Joan's Arse is Where You Park', and partay all over again !

PM Phool

It's like we're all PM Dawn wannabe's.
2003-04-25 12:24:46 PM  
So when was the article published? Did it happen on April 25th or April 2nd. Who is wrong Slashdot or SMH?
2003-04-25 12:27:21 PM  
Yeah, I made that mistake too. Why, just last night I was done insulting people and then I realized I added PM to the beginning of someones name. Made an ass of my self I did. They should just change it back to red.
2003-04-25 12:27:25 PM  
Funniest headline EVAR!
2003-04-25 12:27:36 PM

Cold Spring Harbor! Strong Island! Woooooo!

When do we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery of RNA, tomorrow?
2003-04-25 12:30:57 PM  
I wish you guys would stop complaining about the color scheme. If you don't like it, just click on your name and it'll turn blue.

2003-04-25 12:32:31 PM  
DNA doesn't exist! It's just a made up plan of the white man to oppress us!
2003-04-25 12:34:15 PM  
Hilarious headline!! rotfl!!
2003-04-25 12:35:31 PM  
I wish I knew the DNA to change the names back to red...
2003-04-25 12:35:33 PM  
I just got DNA all over myself looking at the past boobies link.
2003-04-25 12:39:46 PM  
Creationists surrender...what, they didn't?

Oh yeah, well so does my Johnson

2003-04-25 12:40:50 PM  
I wish NPR would shut up about this already.. god I hate NPR.

Sounds like someone is too stupid or too lazy to change the station or turn it off.
2003-04-25 12:42:05 PM  
Happy Birthday DNA.

Wish I could say the same for this DNA.

So long..
2003-04-25 12:42:14 PM  
Hey, Soy, what's so bad about NPR? No commercials, intellegent discussion... sure they're liberal, but they keep the slant contained to dedicated times for commenatry or debate. The actual news is great, compared to network news at least.
2003-04-25 12:42:22 PM  
mmmmm......THAT"S good Billy!

Do you like gladiator movies?
2003-04-25 12:44:29 PM  
When my Dad was fifty we put fifty candles on his cake. Left a smoke stain on the ceiling, and we had to redecorate.
2003-04-25 12:44:41 PM  

Don't confuse intellectuals discussing things with intelligent discussion.

And Christ, even their mechanics are from Cambridge.
2003-04-25 12:45:41 PM  
What happened to my link?
2003-04-25 12:45:44 PM  
Bubbaprog: I didn't know Monica was that old.

It seems like just yesterday she was crawling around the White House on her hands and knees.
