Fun Facts

Here are two wonderful bits of knowledge that I learned yesterday that I thought I'd share with the world:

1. From the book I have to read for US History, Murdering McKinley: "...The Chinese migration so disturbed Americans that Congress voted to stop it with the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Aimed at Asians..." Apparently this author is arguing that readers do not have the mental capacity to realize that the Chinese are from Asia.

2. From an intelligent conversation between two graduate students, overheard at a Rivercats baseball game: "Basically proteins are used with other stuff and are very critical to cell function." So thats what you learn in grad school...
