(THIS IS A FUN AND SATIRE BLOG REVOLVING AROUND BIOLOGY, EVERYONE SHOULD TAKE THE CONTENT HERE IN THAT SPIRIT)
I was once a regular tick happily sucking blood in the slums of Pune until I crawled into the pants of a masters student at the Department of Zoology, university of Pune when he was sipping tea at a roadside stall.
He later went into the department and cleaned out a shelf full of old radioisotopes no one knew were there. I happened to crawl out at that very moment and fell into the bag where he had collected all the isotopes, Greedy bug I was, I started eating.
The next thing I remember is the sun shining in the garbage dump outside the university. I was eaten by a lizard who got eaten by a bird and I soon fell out of the sky onto the roof of the zoology department. (Which was damn lucky considering I can only survive if I eat complex organic waste, I could live in the chemistry department if I want to but the food there is mostly synthetic. Not wholesome- if you know what I mean)
So now I stay at the department mostly, I travel bit though and I have learned a lot by reading all the papers and listening to all the gossip.
In time I found out I am not alone. There are many other magical and mystical creatures around me. (They don’t hang out with me because they think invertebrates are spineless.)
The plants in the botany department are actually aliens, the one lab working on DNA repair are really vampires working to take over the world and the girl working on scorpions is actually doing dragon conservation (A dangerous venture and expensive because of the high medical insurance rates).
I also found out that science is not that straightforward, some instruments only work if they are handled by virgins, some only give good results on a full moon while some need a goat sacrificed to yield good results.(Chickens sort of work but then the results are not good enough for the high impact factor journals)
I will reveal many things in detail as time goes on…
