I'm covered in cultured skin made from T-cells from mice, at least 63% of me.
Experimental treatment? Because current cultured graft technology I'm aware of uses human cells grown on mouse fibroblasts. In any case hope you are doing better.

OK. At the risk of sounding as if I care; I am an internet dependent human for employment. Recent situations have caused me to have to work around internet outages to remain employed. It was a tookus pain. Having an Alt-office is simply smart.

It's not doing it wrong. It's

According to his Twitter, Morley found a chicken. Unfortunately, he could not keep it and gave it to a farmer.

Yes, I took that into consideration before posting. But felt the need to share still. It was a nice chicken, and I'm sorry he couldn't keep it.

I'm working on a process flow diagram for a feather meal, bone meal, and poultry meal pneumatic conveying system. Yuck.

I kinda sorta hope we don't land this project.

My boss quit today. Then we were told they're not hiring anyone to replace him. Then we had a 90 minute meeting on how to divide up his work. Then I came home.

Guildenstern: What?
Rosencrantz: Beard.
Guildenstern: But you're not dead.
Rosencrantz: I didn't say they only started to grow after death. The fingernails also grow before birth - though not the beard.
Guildenstern: What?
Rosencrantz: BEARD! What's the matter with you?
[pause]
Rosencrantz: The toenails, on the other hand, never grow at all.
Guildenstern: The toenails on the other FOOT never grow at all.
Rosencrantz: ...no.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is my favorite contemporary play.
It mentions toenails.
