The biology thing

i was invited to attend a talk in a local uni today.. the whole thing was about biology.. molecules, cels, protein stuffs n etc which i can hardly find my way to understand them..

the first was about applications used to assist in biology research.. so n so.. i understand 50% out of the speech..

the 2nd was about applications too.. but the heck.. i dun understand a single thing at all.. the speaker even pronounced bioinformatics as "bioinfomatik".. n it was very clear that she did not finish her sentences most of the time.. with half way cut n she started with a new sentence frm there... hmm.. i wonder if all professors does really talk like that.. or izzit that she seldom speak or make any verbal presentation b4 this..

my head was soo heavy at that time.. i forced my eyes to open and my head was goin up, down n sideways trying so hard to b awake...

the 3rd one consists of somewad hardcore detailed description on some protein thing n how a cel can eat up another cel.. combination of strings of proteins n stuffs.. it's kinda informative.. but too bad.. i'm just an IT geek sitting there who knows nuts about the chemistry thing happening in our body..

n so towards the end of the talk there was this question n answer session.. a lady actually stood up to ask a question.. to my shocking eyes.. i saw her with her troussers 1 side half up to her knee and another side at a full length.. gosh ! ...

my collegues was like O.O too.. one of them eventually asked..

col a : "wow she must've been a very hardcore professor yah?"
me : "mebbe"
col b : "prolly she was too focused on her research"...
col a : "she didn't even put on her socks!"
me n col b : -.-

n so.. after the whole thing.. i've to get back to the office for work.. and here i am.. freakin exhausted and sleepy bcuz of the function..
