I was trying to locate a sequence via BLAST earlier today when I noticed:

Time flies like an arrow; Drosophila melanogaster like a banana! :wacko:

but shouldn't this be: "likes" a banana (then it's not a perfect not-really-that-perfect analogy)? :wacko: So what's the rule here seanspotatobusiness- plural or singular? btw, welcome to the forum....

too innocent to understand why this is a joke. This should be in the Philosophy thread and someone should explain what it is supposed to mean. :wacko:

A variation of that has been around forever -- well, at least since the 80's when I used to use it as an email tag line. Except then it read:

"Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana!"

Others I recall:

"186,282.397 miles per second: it's not just a good idea -- it's the law!"

"24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case -- coincidence?"

Well, my mind would have never understood that..

During the exam time, I used to have it written on my desk : Time passes, will you?

"Time wastes our health and wits, but we waste time so we are quits". Don't know were it comes from, but I like it.

BTW, fruit flies feed on banana (or food mixtures made out of them) i.e. like them, that's the background. :wacko:

...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

That is....if she posts at all.

I wonder if we can include this here but I find it funny:

are you trying to start a haiku subforum here?

"wind and pollen,
cytoplasmic male sterility"

sounds more like keywords in a paper :lol:
