    Drosophilia

    No. It's not morals charge, thank you.

    I tried to study them, but after about a month, I got bored.

    Lichen, now there's something you can sink your teeth into.

    In grad school, the lab next door did Drosophila genetics. "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana" was their motto.

    Their flies would frequently get out and infest other labs (beware if you kept fruit in your drawer). The threat of bug spray would always get the 'fly guys' upping their fly security.

    If my wife makes "Mystery Meatloaf Surprise" and leaves it on the table to cool, it becomes a Drosophila Rest Area..........
