Guess the Bug Competition
The spectre of a looming grant deadline is becoming all consuming and precludes a post on any of my usual topics. Unfortunately this is the lot of the modern scientist and chasing funding is an eternal treadmill. It doesn't seem to get easier with time either. Perhaps someone should have a word with SaneScientist who seems to be intent on walking the same pathway along which I've been staggering for the past xx years (no I'm not bloody well going to tell you how many decades I've been in this game as my brain refuses to accept my age and it's embarrassing to talk about how relatively little time there is before the free bus pass). Normal service, such as it is, will resume after April 1. Until then here's a picture of my latest "foe". I wonder if any smarty pants can guess what it is? Post if you can figure it out. The winner(s) will be invited to contribute to the grant writing and provided with a week's supply of Starbucks coffee. The answer and reference source will be revealed on my next entry.
