“When things don’t quite fit”

It is a public holiday here in NZ, Waitangi Day, so not planning to write much.

Here is a quote from Isaac Asimov

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not “Eureka!” (I found it!) but “That’s funny…” .

This is very true on the microbiology benches, where it is when we say “That’s funny” or “That’s odd”, that we know we might be onto something exciting.

p.s. I have added a couple of short powerpoints to the website, one on Bacterial vaginosis, the other on Trichomonas.
