I Will Never Think of Ladybugs the Same Way Again

This year I'm taking AP Biology with the legendary Mrs. Dee. When I entered this class I expected to have an amazing experience. I didn't realize just HOW amazing that experience would turn out to be...or how strange.

The Top 10 Things I Learned in My First 2 months of AP Bio:
10) Babysitting a ladybug is impossible. If you must contain a ladybug in a petri dish, make sure to use lots of tape to seal the edges of the screening. Ladybugs are fierce escapees and will do anything to find freedom. Including attacking your hand.
9) Squirrels are the only animals worth running over.
8) Prokaryotes will kill us all.
7) Birds steal, commit adultery and reject their fellow man. And they make no excuses.
6) Just because you can get an A on a test doesn't mean that you can count to 15. Or 9 for that matter.
5) Microscopes are the enemy.
4) Antibacterial soap is the...other...enemy.
3) Learning about the Hardy Weinberg theorem has potent soporific effects.
2) Bees and hornets are gang members. Dat b whack yo.
1) Darwin was bald, wimpy and weird. His awesome mind was his primary redeeming quality.

Honorable mention: The Darwin Awards is perhaps one of the greatest books ever written.
