One of the many trade publications I subscribe to is BioTechniques. It's really aimed at life science researchers a lot smarter than I am, but I enjoy looking at the pictures and trying to pronounce a few of the really big words.
Maybe I'm the only one who finds this humorous, but along with my August issue I got a silver package. I'm attracted to shiny things, so I immediately ripped open what the package promoted as BioTechniques Action Cards.
I thought perhaps there'd be a genetically
modified superhero or two that I could trade with my friends. But, oh
well, just ads for biotech tools and other products. I still think they
should create a Captain Clone or Microcentrifuge Man.
