Lions on the Pride Rock

I think it has been one week since Dr. Chew mentioned about taking babies out into the sun before 10am to help break down bilirubin so babies can be treated and overcome jaundice.

Clinical Biochemistry rocks. Now I know even lions have neonatal jaundice.

Just thought that my neurobiology lecturer was in a really good mood today. Always thought he's got some sense of humour, but today was a little...different...Atmosphere-wise.

After I entered the class from filling my water bottle, he said:"Ok since everyone is NOT here, lets have a pop quiz,". At first I thought he was unhappy from all the empty seats in the usually-full hall.

Well, World Cup was at final last night( more "GOAL!!" disturbing my already depleted sleeping hours), and I heard from a friend they only slept at 6am because the game lengthen for a half hour more, plus the ceremonious trophy-awarding session.

Expressionless, he began to type away, and the question spells:

Compare and contrast: Squid, Octopus, calamari and cuttle fish?

One of the reasons why I like his class, despite his austerity >80% of the times. Thumbs-up =)

ps: Suppose he won a bet last night? o.O

By the way, Say hi =)

To the giant squid.

To the cuttlefish.

And How can we forget? Welcome to Paul! The famous World Cup Octopus!

I would like very much to get a proper picture, but trust me. If you google images for calamari, you'll most likely see what I see @@
