Newly Discovered Protein Named HD-DVD-KEY Causes Stomach Ulcers


For brevity the amino acids in the newly discovered protein are alphanumerically coded as follows.

alanine – 0
arginine – 1
asparagine – 2
aspartic acid – 3
cysteine – 4
glutamine – 5
glutamic acid – 6
glycine – 7
histidine – 8
isoleucine – 9
leucine – A
lysine – B
methionine – C
phenylalanine – D
proline – E
serine – F

The newly discovered protein is a total of 32 monomers in the following sequence:


Its function is not known in its entirety but so far has been directly connected with causing stomach ulcers in entertainment industry executives.

Good for a laugh. Very cheeky. Jason Rennie
I meant the hackers who got the code not you DaveScot* :P jpark320
Watch out they're gonna shut the site down now! Wow, ppl do have lots of time these days. jpark320
Or, as Jeremy Bornstein put it so poetically... Zero and her Origin Zero, the number said to be discovered Nine times by ancient magicians, was Found again by a mysterious order of Nine modern alchemists, who built One machine after another, until finally One exploded with fascinating results. No fire emerged from its Twin engines, but instead Nine small automata crawled out, Denying the proposition that energy, Seven millenia or more in the accumulation, For most purposes, remains Ever constant, throughout the Three ages of man's civilization. Five hundred years after the death of Cesare Borgia, whose image infected those of the Divine Lamb (so called), still she who Ate of the pomegranate seeds For her indiscretion, must ever wend her Solitary path amongst the Five true worlds, stopping only for Sex and occasional rending of garments. Constant travel drains her. Five worlds is too many for one lifetime, yet the Sixth can never claim her. Three wise men write, of the sefirot, Five are false, and four are lies. Tiferet alone among them holds the world's truth. Eight lifetimes of study, Eight generations of blind encoding, Cannot release the final answer: Zero defined by itself; no further emblems exist. -- Jeremy Bornstein sagebrush gardener
Too funny. geoffrobinson
Given the number of random typos in the world, and the amount of time that people waste on the internet, it was inevitable that this simple 32 AA sequence would evolve. After all, life needs at least 400 proteins of 100AA length to exist and it atarted all by itself, before there were any intelligent beings with amino acid typing machines. idnet.com.au
