Quite good, and all about the human genome.
So they start talking about cystic fibrosis – a genetic disease which wreaks havoc on the lungs and body of those who have it. Very awful, and something I would occasionally deal with back when I was still a Respiratory Therapist.
Now, the interesting part comes when we hear the a person who has this disease of CF mention that she lost four pounds overnight. my wife hears this and tosses off a “I would love to lose four pounds overnight.”
My reply is, “no you don’t want to lose four pounds with…” and here I think. “CF” but when I say it out loud it is expanded to “Cold Fusion.” Cold Fusion is a web programming language.
This is the moment I realize that inhabiting my skull is no longer the brain of a Respiratory Therapist. It is now occupied full time by a Web Developer.
