GIVE WHAT YOU GET, AND YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE

here is the most recent friday5!
answer for yourself or see others answers here: http://f.riday5.com/?p=1116
sorry, guys these answers might be a little off point.  i like coincidences but don't believe in luck.  fuck luck, make things happen with hard work!

  1. When has something miraculous or seemingly miraculous happened to you or someone you know?
    my coworker had her layaway paid off by a stranger last week.
    kindness does exist. :)
  2. When were you last part of an amazing coincidence?
    i helped my pops wrap his secret santa gift for a friend.  he gave him ten packs of plastic glitter fishing lures and a bag of lead attached to a fishing hook.  he said, [lance] is going to love this.  i would even keep it for myself. 
    he came home that night with a gift from his secret santa.  the box got smashed in his backpack on the way home so he decided to open it... 
    his secret santa gave him 5 packs of the same plastic glitter lures, a bag of lead, and a bag of red beads for tying the lures.
  3. What have you recently accomplished against magnificent odds?
    i forgot to take one of my final exams.  
    not joking.
    it was for an online class and i had finished all my homework a week before and i totally forgot i had to take the final.  it was already past due and i was thinking, i have three exams this week.  one for every lecture... except i had four lectures... FUUUUUUUUUUUK...
    i emailed the professor right away.  i didn't think he would let me make it up but i decided to just let him know what happened.  
    his response was: without the final your grade is 91%  study for your other classes and have a nice winter break.
    yes guys, doing homework on time, all the time pays off.  study hard and you can still get an A without taking a final exam. OTL
  4. In what way this week has luck been in your favor?
    i was looking for a shirt for my sister's xmas present and couldn't find her size at ala moana.  i went to kahala and they had it there, hooray!
  5. What was the last outcome you consciously decided to leave up to chance?
    sunday at 4pm: I wonder if Nam Fong is still has duck left?  i will just go down and see... 
    (they weren't even open)

i just heard the tragic news last night at our research group's christmas gathering.   i feel like i just saw him!  and even more unsettling, his remarks at the ASM meeting "which one of us will be next..." (which i wrote about here: http://www.liquoriceblack.blogspot.com/2014/10/electric-hum.html).  he was a genomic genius and had even more big ideas for the future.  he was known for sequencing projects, quorum sensing/pathogenicity islands, bioinformatics... the list goes on.  the last nice thing he did affecting me was paying for our virology class' time on the scanning electron microscope.  usually it's around $100/hr plus materials for sample preparation but he paid for our time at the facility and the ladies there let us take as many pictures as we want (and also let us drive around on the scope).  me and EmM and heathers and suz had such a good time!  i'm sure any of us would jump at a chance to do work or intern there or just sit at the scope and operate it again! here's a picture i took there:

"pickles" (bacteria SEM)
yes!  i actually took this!  it's bacteria from an oil pipe.  magnification is 18000x!

R.I.P.



besides the shocking news, we had a lovely time at our party.  lots of old and new faces congregating for food and fun.  yes, we talked about science and school and poop and med school interviews, but that's expected from bacteria scientists, no? ;)  it was a great!  super chill time, great food, talk story, and i also discovered sierra nevada coffee stout.  http://www.sierranevada.com/beer/variety-packs/coffee-stout




cheers!
