the wonderful world of science!

"First, researchers grew enough fungus to give dandruff to 10 million people. Next, they sequenced its genes. Then they found out that not only does an icky fungus live on your head and cause dandruff-- but it could be having sex. On your head. Right now."

no, this paragraph is not from some crazy blogger ... it is from Reuters, acutal news people, reporting actual news.

if you ask me, reporting is looking up!

Mmm...fungus... Malassezia globosa is not as fun a name as malassezia furfur, which causes tinea versicolor and looks like spaghetti and meatballs under the microscope. (This brought to you by random crap that always shows up on medical boards. Sigh.)
