There is big excitement in lab today--my very talented labmate Jake has won the Division of Medical Sciences graduate student science haiku contest!!! Here is his burrito winning entry:
Green lasers on high
Shining to illuminate
It's definitely haiku day over here, so share your science haikus in the comments for maximum fun!
May your burrito award
Not induce foul gas
like wind thru woods; musical note.
A for effort.
Erasmus Darwin's 1794 Zoonomia preface
--Go On, Old friend! explore with eagle eye,
Where wrapt in night retiring causes lie,
Trace their flight bands, their secrets haunt betray
And give new wonders to the beam of day;
Till link by link, with step aspiring trod,
You climb from Nature to the throne of god.
-- So Saw the Patriach with admiring eyes,
From earth to heaven a golden ladder rise;
Involv'd in clouds the mystic scale ascends,
And brutes and angels crowd the distant ends.
While Synethic biology stands, America shall stand;
When Synthetic biology falls, America shall fall;
When America falls - the world.
(replace synthetic biology with coliseum, america with rome. lord byron)

laugh down two slopes
-foolish space, steep entropy"
