Frosted mini RNA, a cure for Autism: BC on Autism Ep 22


Click to Play

Two different short bits dealing with RNA and autism.  One funny and tasty, the other dealing with an ill-informed (euphemism) money hound.  In part 2, the individual actually uses the recent awarding of the Nobel Prize for the discovery of RNAi to help drum up some dollars for the Drinkee Drinkee Cure Autism RNA lady.

Runtime is 10 minutes.

Don't they put EDTA in the paper liners in cereal boxes?
This is fun. Copper EDTA is a blue dye used in shampoo. It also says EDTA is a pollutant and is out in lakes and the ocean... whoa... think of all the mercury it's sopping up.

I think Yasko does do RNAi in the sense that she interferes with real science of autism with her yeast RNA crap.

That Mervine guy is associated with Gordon if I'm not mistaken. When will Amy get her Nobel?!!!

NM: that is freaking hilarious. Wish I would have thought of that for a title for this post. I'm gonna steal that for future fun.

Ms. Clark: Yeah, crazy ain't it? I copied your comment and a more lengthy response over here.

btw, shouldn't that be frosted micro-RNA?

Yeah, you're right, however the cereal is mini spooners or mini wheats. I guess the ad execs wouldn't be so into micro spooners/wheats.

Of course, we could have got into SPOONERSi and WHEATSi, but I figure that my miSENSEOFHUMOR was probably boring enough with my current display of FUNi.

Thank you, BC, for another episode. I always learn something from your videos.

About that picture. So which one would be violating a copyright...the cereal box manufacture or the RNA autism clown...hmmm....let me think.
