I just wanted to state that when I put my micropipette tips in the autoclave, what I ACTUALLY wanted was to fill the cases with condensation to increase the potential for contamination, which is why I was ever so pleased that this plan worked so perfectly.
In other amusing news, last night I was totally in the mood to just give in to my nerdy side and enjoy a few hours of shamelessly nerdy Star Wars movie goodness, when it dawned upon me that I, personally do not own ANY of the Star Wars movies. None. Not even the OLD ones. When I sent a distressed text message to friends conveying this sad reality, I received comforting messages such as, "I remember when ypou used to be cool." Oh, the power of friendship.
