Riiiii-Booo-SOME! [Jul. 26th, 2007|12:18 am]
Oh. Em. Effing. Gee!

Okay. What do you get when you mix a chemistry professor, an entire university dance department, a late-60s jam band, protein transcription, and -- for no readily apparent reason -- the poem Jabberwocky?

You get this 13-minute YouTube video.

There's a slow talky bit at the beginning which honestly, you should watch. To ready yourself. But really? It's all about watching people writhe about on the quad while some guy in the band yells things like "peptide bond, woo!" and "tRNA, yeah!"

It should also be noted that it is readily apparent that every one of these people is TOTALLY FREAKING HIGH.

Ohmigod. It's so hysterically bad. In a way, it's almost kind of cool. But mostly, it's just awful. Mind-bogglingly, side-splittingly, delightfully, awful.

I probably would have found it way more amusing but for the fact that it's been shoved down my throat (albiet without completely high people) way too many times in the last 11 months.

It was, however, refreshing to see 30s ribosomes and 50s ribosomes making 80s ribosomes. Apparently, in my Micro class, 40s plus 50s makes 80s. Our teacher told us to just go with it, and if we really wanted to know, to take a higher level biochem class. Sigh.

Dude. When someone uses the word "happening", you turn and run away!

1) #$@%^# baby boomers.

2) I am sure this has been used as ammo to cut higher education funding at least once.

3) At least they tried. The problem is that it's a requirement to be high to fully understand this video.

I was watching this, and started describing it to my sister, with my hand on my head to keep my brain from exploding, and, no kidding, she said, "Yes, I've seen it. They showed it to me in school." I'm still in shock.
