Because I am a science nerd… I believe I am going to make my posts be something that I find interesting in the field of science. Each day I stumble across something that I’m like “HOLY CRAP THATS SO COOL!” and hopefully by me spreading my knowledge some more people will get that “HOLY CRAP THATS SO COOL!” feeling as well.
My first moment was when the discovery of arsenic-based DNA bacteria were discovered. The discovery can be found: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6034/1163

The idea that a thought to be horribly poisonous element can potentially be one of the elements that helps to comprise a form of life boggles my noggin! WHAT THE HECK! Next thing you know you’re going to be hearing about fish who poop gold or worms who make silk (oh wait… silk comes from worms…) But you can understand where I’m coming from. Life is amazing and continually trumps knowledge as we know it.
Now full circle to the bus theory, your bus can take many different forms. Coach, school, or party bus. =]
