The tube delusion

I had a peculiar encounter this morning on the Jubilee line. I luckily conquered a seat and flung out my usual morning reading - this time Dawkin's The God Delusion. Seconds later people on the opposite side of the carriage started smirking and almost couldn't hold their laughter. I started looking around, examining myself (one never knows, there might be toilet paper hanging out of your jeans), and only when I saw what my neighbor passenger was fiercely studying (plenty of many coloured bookmarks), it all made sense - he read a bible.

DNA maxi-preps shan't happen

The day before yesterday I forgot to add ampicillin to the overnight cultures. Yesterday I used LB agar for my supposed broth and was wondering about the block of gel in my flask. Today, well today I'll give it another try. Darn, two embarrasing mistakes within such a short period.
