    Holy exploding DNA Batman.

    I have a number of weighty textbooks like that.

    I have one that says Gross Psychology, can you imagine that? (Gross is the name of the author)

    Oooh! Nitrocellulose! One of my favorite substances. Funny, I thought it was only good for smokeless powder and ping-pong balls.

    But… but i can’t read the textbook and follow the instructions at the same time!

    This must be a trick to get people to buy two copies…
