Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays 2012

A lovely comic from XKCD that Kirsten posted on my wall.


I absolutely love it! And if you don’t get it, here’s the joke. The girl got a microbiology lab kit that classifies bacteria into two broad classes of bacteria: gram negative and gram positive. According to protocol, you are suppose to stain with purple first (Crystal Violet), wash, then stain with pink (Safarin). Based on characteristics, like cell structure, the bacteria will retain either one of the colors. Purple would be gram positive, while pink would be gram negative (ie – E. coli)

Have a Merry Christmas, all!!!!! Show your love to friends & family and be kind to everyone you are lucky to have in your life 🙂
