9. You inherited faulty DNA (disease-causing gene).
8. Your DNA matches the DNA found at a crime scene.
7. The prosecution withheld DNA test results from your defense attorneys.
6. Your DNA didn’t match the DNA of the person who you thought was your parent.
5. The results from your Y-DNA genealogy test showed that you were missing the DSY464 marker which means you’re infertile and…your daughter is not your daughter.
4. The wrong person’s DNA was found in your husband’s underwear.
3. You donated sperm anonymously but your offspring tracked you down anyway using genealogy DNA testing.
2. Terrorists alter the DNA in bacteria to create bioweapons and perpetrate mass genetic bioviolence on us all.
1. You make DNA and all things related to DNA your life.

Cell fractionation is the technique used to separate and isolate the cell components so that structure and function can be investigated outside the cell.

Leonardo wrote in Italian using a special kind of shorthand that he invented himself. People who study his notebooks have long been puzzled by something else, however. He usually used "mirror writing", starting at the right side of the page and moving to the left. Only when he was writing something intended for other people did he write in the normal direction.

There's an email that's been floating around for a while, where the words are scrambled. As long as you don't think about the words as you're reading them, you can read it just fine. The trick is, the first and last letters stay the same, and only the inner letters get scrambled. Your brain reads individual words, not letters.

Women are form Yahoo
Partial charges of hydrogen bonding give water its remarkable sticky and elastic properties on display. The surface tension of the water droplet above the coin shapes a seemingly impossible, yet beautiful and almost magical form. The droplet clings on to the edges of the metal until the intermolecular forces are no longer strong enough to resist the force of gravity.

Cockroaches are infamous for their tenacity, and are often cited as the most likely survivors of a nuclear war. Some even claim that they can live without their heads. It turns out that these armchair exterminators (and their professional brethren) are right. Headless roaches are capable of living for weeks.
To understand why cockroaches—and many other insects—can survive decapitation, it helps to understand why humans cannot, explains physiologist and biochemist Joseph Kunkel at the
But cockroaches do not have blood pressure the way people do. “They don’t have a huge network of blood vessels like that of humans, or tiny capillaries that you need a lot of pressure to flow blood through,” Kunkel says. “They have an open circulatory system, which there’s much less pressure in. After you cut their heads off, very often their necks would seal off just by clotting,” he adds. “There’s no uncontrolled bleeding.”

Priestley described the new substance he discovered as five or six times better than common air for the purpose of respiration, inflammation, and, I believe, every other use of common atmospherical air.
