Once upon a time socialists prided themselves on being part of a movement that brought people together. Across lines of race, of gender, of sexuality, of nationality. It was about erasing all those lines, not drawing new ones.

How we got from that to "unless you think and speak precisely in the one manner I personally approve of, you are officially The Enemy" is beyond me.

Petty authoritarianism doesn't build movements. It strangles them.

Thinking of creating my own instance. From those who have done so, what do you think are the advantages of doing so?

@jeanmanguy If you ever do, let me know. I could fill an exhibition hall with my own disasters.

Unfortunately, the journal name was abbreviated as "Anal Bioanal Chem".

@khaleesi Damn, that sucks. I'll never understand why apps can be so tempermental.

It's summer vacation and all the undergraduates have left campus. So wonderful.

@aral American here, so probably won't be joining, but all the best. Keep the rest of us updated if you can.

I'm trying out a new extraction method based on a paper from 1962. Needless to say, there have been some setbacks.

Today I discovered several ways how not to do my experiment correctly. Yay.

Evolution really is a stupid process. The enzyme which plants use to perform photosynthesis (Rubisco) is inactivated by molecular oxygen, which plants produce in large quantities whenever they perform photosynthesis. Intelligent design my ass.
