Thanks! They're glass micro-injection needles with a dab of Super Glue on the end. The other end is stuck in a piece of clay. As long as the glue doesn't hit the wing hinges or head, they'll inflate.

Whoa, look. I haven't posted in 6 months.  That should tell you something about Google Plus.

Fun with my new extension tubes.  Hard to find a focal point, but this one wasn't too horrible of the day lily in my yard.  Thanks to:

Wow, that's so much better.  I just deleted everyone who posts things that I already saw on Facebook, Twitter & Reddit.  Now I only see new things and now G+ doesn't seem so redundant.

Story
Tagline
I work with Drosophila, therefore I can say "collect virgins" with a straight face.
Introduction
I run a core facility at Duke University called Model System Genomics that helps labs use Drosophila as a model system for their research.  I also teach a genetics and developmental biology and genomics laboratory courses.  Oh, and some molecular biology, as well.
Bragging rights
For about 2 months I had a top 20 national ranking on the extra missions for Ninja Gaiden Black. God, I loved that game.
