    Here is a video clip spliced together, with pieces of Drew Berry’s work, that has Centrioles, which consist of nine microtubule triplets arranged like the blades of a tiny turbine, thrown in the mix:

    Billions of cells inside us, copying with complete fidelity.

    …actually, no, not complete fidelity.

    OT:

    Featherweight songbird is a long-distance champ
    Excerpt: A tiny songbird weighing just two tablespoons of sugar migrates from the Arctic to Africa and back, a distance of up to 29,000 kilometres (18,000 miles), scientists reported on Wednesday.

    Hmm, reminds me of this recent quote in response to the claim that 747’s display ‘better design’ than birds:

    Can Humans Improve on Nature? If So, What Does it Mean for Intelligent Design? – February 9, 2012
    Excerpt: Now if they can create an impedance pump that builds itself from materials in its environment and copies itself flawlessly for thousands of generations without human intervention, or build a superhydrophobic carbon nanotube array that produces seeds that grow into beautiful works of art as well as functional systems, or design a 747 that lays eggs that hatch into new 747s, then they will really be something to talk about.
