Elevated anxiety

Spotted on the top floor of my building yesterday:

In other, no doubt completely unrelated news, we have a new PI in the building! Dr… Wonka, I think it was. Model organisms guy, working on a species closely related to C. elegans – V. kniddus.

    I think that basically every building could benefit from having elevators that move sideways and at odd angles.Not sure if they should be glass, though.

    I would move to be able to work on the Vermicious Knids. From the safety of a glass elevator, of course.

  3. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    RPS, glass is good – you'd be able to see the freaked-out faces of the passengers as the elevator shoots off in random directions.Bean-Mom, wouldn't that be awesome? I'd want to teach them to spell something other than SCRAM – that way they'd eventually be able to write your grants and papers for you.

    It's not quite horizontal, is it? Is that what people mean when they're talking about an 'elevator pitch'?

  5. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    DAMMIT! "Elevator pitch" – that's brilliant! Why didn't I think of that for the title?!

  6. Bob O'Hara says:

    I'm sure you will.

    These blog comments are all going sideways.Also – there is nothing more Vermicious than a Knid.Pardon me while I get my coat.

  8. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    Bob, no, I'll leave it as-is and bathe in the reflected glory.Ricardipus, indeed they are. I wouldn't have it any other way – my commenters always put an interesting slant on things.
