In “Science Fail” (Telic Thoughts, July 31, 2012), chunkdz doesn’t think much of the artificial jellyfish we wrote about here:

Turns out that some Cal-Tech dorks glued some rat heart cells to a piece of silicon. Put it in water and zap it with a pulsing electric field and it wiggles – a phenomenon that has been well known for decades.

Now I like bath toys as much as the next guy but really… if this can make it into Nature why can’t I seem to find funding for my own experiment?

The graphics are priceless.
