Guess what made beer go up my nose

Post  Jeremy on Thu Apr 03, 2008 12:30 am

well hello there.

so just now, i'm sitting in bed reading a paper for class tomorrow, and I come across a part that literally made my swallow of beer come up into my nose...and, figured i'd post it here and see if anyone else gets liquid up their nose. although maybe sarah is right and i'm a filthy juvenile poppersnickshack (yeah I dont know what her crazy cockney words mean either)

ok here is the passage:

These guard cells integrate a variety of environmental and endogenous signals to
tightly regulate the stomatal aperture (Willmer and Fricker,1996). In response to drought, plants synthesize the hormone
abscisic acid (ABA), which triggers stomatal closure,
thus reducing transpirational water loss. ABA acts directly
on guard cells and induces stomatal closure via the efflux of
potassium and anions from guard cells and the removal of
organic osmolytes (MacRobbie, 1998; Schroeder et al., 2001).
Pharmacological and cell biological studies have led to
major advances in our understanding of the mechanisms of
ABA signal transduction in stomatal guard cells (Blatt, 2000;
Assmann and Wang, 2001; Schroeder et al., 2001). In particular,
substantial evidence indicates that the ABA regulation
of plasma membrane ion channels is mediated by increases in
cytosolic Ca2. ABA increases cytosolic Ca2 by inducing both Ca2 release from intracellular stores
and Ca2 influx from the extracellular space.
Additional second messengers that contribute
to ABA-induced stomatal closure include increases in
cytoplasmic pH and production of phosphatidic acid.





Luckily everyone likes reading about ABA mediated stomatal closure.

so, am I the only one who found something funny in there?

Youre doing it again. This is just an excuse to titilate those poor frustrated nose fetishists who might happen upon this site (god help them). Dont you think theyre suffering enough? ...*snaps pencil*... Mad <--- this reminds me of Catherine Hepburn

I find it funny because it frustrates me. I would break apart in a fit of laughter if I had to study this.

Oh damn... I bet those two get it on every night now... I mean, after their discovery and all... lol!
I hope there were no, uh... trans-incidental transferences of untreatable viral traits in any of the process of making such a discovery to write about.

Nice one, J.

"Assmann" Damn you Jeremy i actually sat and understood what actually was happening in the process hoping that some absurd theory of botany might strike me or something and it was in the research sources!!! gah!

I hope I have the right thing now

well, more fully it is 'assman and wang'. wang being american (possibly british, sarah?) slang for a mans...bits and pieces. or, just his bit...how about the penis. god i hate that word.

its the combination of the 'assmann and wang' that (however juvenily) made me laugh.

haha you still had substantial reason.. we'd laugh in class at a professor saying "SecC", think trignometry.

I just tried to explain the joke to someone next to me... and he doesn't get it.

"I don't think it's funny!"

Psht. Now that I get the joke, the joke's over Crying or Very sad

Oh oh! we had a head mistress called Miss Sore'vagina :>

...haw that wasnt true, i just wanted to join in with you guys =(


'wang' no. We start here with something like 'little fireman' which usually stops at about 4 and we then say 'willy' untill we're 12, then dick and bollocks generally...a more obscure euphamism would be 'meat and 2 veg'
