Since we were on the topic of replication yesterday, here is a gem of a personal ad I found several years back.

For the record, it should be pretty clear that the ad was not composed by me. Anyway, this often gets used as a slide before discussion related to either replication or PCR (polymerase chain reaction). If you see any others of similar intent, please pass them on. These are great visual aids.

    Perhaps not as funny, but it has an academic theme, from August 2006 Ann Arbor Observer:

    Afraid of a Ph.D. in a miniskirt? If so, ignore this. I’m 30 — a bubbly, svelte 5’5″ romantic brunette with illegal lashes. Never married, new to Ann Arbor, looking for her match.

    Well, she may understand “DNA Replication” but what about the more important issue of actually “gettin’ some” and “knockin’ boots”?

    Looks like I finally know what to post on my craigslist personal ad: “You are really hot and are currently trying to ascertain the nature of dark energy. Glasses are a bonus.”
