The correct answer

A tablespoon is just shy of 15 milliliters (like 14.98). I thought it would be much less. The closest guess we had around these parts was 10 mL. Mistress Bionerd wins!!

And, in case it doesn't update fast enough, the title of the last post should have been Monday, December 18. Not the 14th. I'm retarded.

You're not retarded. Just driven insane by flip-flopping asshats.

You're right. You're absolutely right. Thank you for validating me.

I am FedExing the boss some papers to sign, and he has to get them back to me on Wednesday (they're due next Monday). Considering the holiday do you wanna take bets as to whether or not he can actually accomplish this task?

I think you may actually be a bit retarded. Think about this, you chose to work with The Boss for 5+ years!! if that isn't retarded, then what is?

SquareAJ - in my defense: I was tricked into coming and the crazy didn't come out until after it was too late to do anything about it.

If anything, this experience has made me retarded. I don't think I started out that way.

I don't think we actually measured everything... and we agreed that it's probably different for different... people.

I can tell you, as can Mistress Bionerd, that it varies between people. Sometimes is 200 ul. Sometimes is 10 ml, which is SUPER GROSS.

If, um, we're talking about the same thing. Are we? Or am I now the retarded one?

Oh no, DM, you are right on track. 10 MLs!?! Wow. We are all marveling over that here in the lab.

Let me just jump in and verify the 10 mls thing. Yep, it happens and it's disgusting. Squareaj, you can confirm with your friend that he may, indeed, be able to fill a shot glass. (do I need to place emphasis on shot? I didn't think so)

You're ahead of your time, then, considering December 18th is still 14 days away.

(I think you meant November!)

Oh no, Karla, there is much to "officially" do prior to the thesis defense. My advisor and I actually were cutting it kind of close.
