I wish I was DNA Helicase so I can unzip your Genes: This perfectly legitimate video has been sacrificed to bad…

I wish I was DNA Helicase so I can unzip your Genes: This perfectly legitimate video has been sacrificed to bad internet puns to “celebrate” the trolling of a friend who paid the price of a “What’s Hot” post with this come-on, “hello how are you doing today..well i will like to know you more okay so do you have yahoo or msn so we can talk there now okay”.

We were all a-Twitter and played gamely along (“You can come in MySpace anytime”, “Do you send HotMail?, “ICQ all the time because you Pinterest me”). So, the next time you get a lame, “HI HOW R U?” (http://goo.gl/DMYZI), feel free to have some pun:

• Hi, my name’s Vista. Can I crash at your place tonight?

• If I FlickR your YouTube will you Twitter my Yahoo?

• Can I Ascii you out?

• I was hoping you wouldn’t block my pop-up.

• Want to see my Red Hat?

• Mind if I run a sniffer to see if your ports are open?

• How about we go home and you handle my exception?

• Hey Baby, let me hack your kernel.

• You can put a Trojan on my Hard Drive anytime.

• I wish I was your derivative so I could lie tangent to your curves.

Keep up the good fight, folks and here’s to trolling the trolls!

Use #trollhelp to call for backup.

Real Science: Researchers find gold nanoparticles, coated with positive charge, can unzip the two strands of negatively charged DNA. These findings have implications for DNA based electronics or gene therapy. Read more at http://news.ncsu.edu/releases/wms-melechko-dna/

    ROFLMAO!!! Awesome post Rajini Rao 🙂


  2. Can you get the video above the other things?

  3. Rajini Rao says:


    Where would you like the video, Johan Edstrom ?

  4. Rajini Rao says:


    It’s my choice to avoid unpleasantness and keep it light, Peter Lindelauf 🙂

  5. Jean Liss says:


    Love the video! 


    I considered having a hashtag #trollhelp  that someone could post if they got hijacked by a troll.  Then anyone who happened to be free and bored at the time could jump in and have a little troll snack….

  6. Rajini Rao says:


    Yes, awesome vid! What a great idea, I’ll keep that in mind Jean Liss . Let me edit the post to include your suggestion.

  7. Rajini Rao says:


    Feisal Kamil mentioned women who had their profile pix shared. Happens all the time.

  8. Rajini Rao says:


    Nice DNA earrings, Kevin Clift ! Thanks for the link.

  9. Rajini Rao says:


    I didn’t name names, Feisal Kamil 🙂


  10. Great post, Rajini Rao – very multifarious!

  11. Rajini Rao says:


    Nefariously multifarious, I hope David Archer 🙂

  12. Jean Liss says:


    Being an international group (Jean can be a boy’s name) and an ambiguous photo, I haven’t been the target of the unwanted “hey baby” posts…


  13. Indubitably, Rajini Rao – and I’ll take this as a warning to stop consuming gold nanoparticles, STAT.

  14. Rajini Rao says:


    Unless you have a hankering for designer genes, David Archer .

  15. Rajini Rao says:


    Where is that gold hawker when we need him, Aida Hazlan ? 🙂

  16. Rajini Rao says:


    I just finished eating my dinner of DNA spaghetti, with a replication fork.

  17. Jean Liss says:


    Just to throw in a red (gold) herring… 


    An older treatment for RA was gold…


    http://www.hopkins-arthritis.org/arthritis-info/rheumatoid-arthritis/rheum_treat.html#gold


    Intramuscular Gold  (not saying that this would make the nanoparticles)


  18. Hold on – I think my telomeres are ringing. 

  19. Rajini Rao says:


    Gold and silver were supposed to have therapeutic properties back in the old days. Interesting that it’s still being referenced..the page is from my institution, as well 🙂


  20. Jean Liss I’d rather have gold treatments for RA than mercury treatments for syphilis.

  21. Rajini Rao says:


    You know I like my energy drinks. When I go to a pub, I usually ask for a pint of Adenosine Triphosphate. The barman says “That’ll be 80p (ATP) please!”


  22. Thank you, Rajini Rao – we now have our pre-dinner groaning over for the night… oy!  %^)

  23. Rajini Rao says:


    Steady supply of awful puns on this page, David Archer 😀


  24. Feisal Kamil I think there’s a specific gravity / mass problem with trying to dip yourself in mercury, involving a lot of downward pressure to get immersion… (also, you’d have to hold your breath pretty hard!)


    I’m trying to squeeze a pun out of this (maybe that was it?) but I’m too hungry for spaghetti now!

  25. Rajini Rao says:


    I like to make spaghetti to pasta time away. Do remember to use your noodle, David Archer .

  26. Jean Liss says:


    David Archer , they used silver nitrate for baby’s eyes at birth to stop the clap and one Dr. also tried to use it to sterilize women… 


  27. Jean Liss One of my brothers-in-law came home as a newborn with a burn from a klutz spilling  silver nitrate on his forehead. Surely this was anything but benign, dripped into a newborn’s eyes?!

  28. Kevin Clift says:


    By the way have you ever heard of Polari; made famous/public by Kenneth Williams?  In Polari troll means to walk about (esp. looking for trade) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polari

  29. Chad Haney says:


    You all are still searching for the silver lining?

  30. Rajini Rao says:


    Can’t say I’ve heard of it, Kevin Clift . Didn’t troll have something to do with fishing?

  31. Chad Haney says:


    That would be a trawler.

  32. Rajini Rao says:


    Chad Haney , I thought so too but then I looked it up. According to Wiki: In modern English usage, the verb troll is a fishing technique of slowly dragging a lure or baited hook from a moving boat.


  33. Salmon trollers set individual lines with hooks and lures; trawlers are similar to draggers: huge nets that scoop up everything in their path. 

  34. Chad Haney says:


    What a goof. My dad has called it trawling all these years. We used to go trolling all the time in Lake Superior.

  35. Chad Haney says:


    When discussing RAJEEV, there’s a whole different fluidity and rise that should not be testimonial.

  36. Rajini Rao says:


    Speaking of rise, RAJEEV is like a bread joke that never gets mold.


  37. As the saying goes, “Who knows for whom the trawl trolls?”

  38. Rajini Rao says:


    David Archer : check comments on this post http://goo.gl/DMYZI


  39. I like this change Rajini Rao whether it be trawling or trolling…passively sitting back and letting one smash the post just isn’t working. Happy trawling 🙂

  40. Rajini Rao says:


    Oh, I remember you tagged me on a stem cell post, Cheryl Ann MacDonald, Psy’D. ! I was in a meeting and now it is probably buried way down in notifications. Do you recall who it was?


  41. Oh it is OK Rajini Rao I forwarded him your post on stem cells, gave him the ScienceSunday circle and told him to follow you. But if he has any questions….Here you go connor councell really nice guy.


  42. Sheesh Feisal Kamil seemed to have missed some of the trolls lol


  43. When I shared your post :)) my profile picture was just shared to a limited group. 


  44. Too tired to plus you all, but ZOMG <3!  Wish I could join in, but I think I must crash now.

  45. Rajini Rao says:


    Shares of profile pix are especially creepy 😦

  46. Rajini Rao says:


    LOL, Feisal Kamil . Love her name, perfect for spamming. Signing off now 🙂


  47. Feisal Kamil I was particularly impressed with your handling of that fellow selling gold – lol. I’ve never known what to say to these trolls, just look on in morbid fascination and sputter – what? why? omg!


  48. I am not going to block him yet… I am keeping track of the people who plussed. 

  49. Rajini Rao says:


    One guy shared my profile pix with the comment: “hahaha” I thought he was off his rocker, lol.


  50. :)) Night Rajini Rao They are off their rocker..hahaha


  51. Hi Gnotic Pasta go find my picture out there floating around plus it :))


  52. TC Rajini Rao…. Good reason not to have a profile pic IMO 😛

  53. Rajini Rao says:


    Except that I am very much a real person for my science outreach efforts, The Final Colony – Author Lacerant Plainer .


  54. No :)) it isn’t normal Gnotic Pasta kinda like WTF :))  Jerk!

  55. Chad Haney says:


    Downloading and/or sharing profile pics has creep written all over it.


  56. Yes Maam lol – I noticed great stuff too. I ended up in a lot of parallel discussions as well Rajini Rao.


  57. I’ve downloaded one profile pic – that was of my brothers mini schauzer 😛


  58. Heh Feisal Kamil – that was absolutely hilarious! Yeppers 🙂


  59. Hehe Peter Lindelauf – I think he ran away at some stage when the conversation turned to Clinton (or Glinton).

  60. Chad Haney says:


    Feisal Kamil didn’t you have to delete some of the comments? I think I missed a lot.


  61. Oh yes 😛 lol that was really weird. I got stuck on “Can anticipate problems before they happen” or somesuch and kept thinking he was the god emperor of dune.


  62. Damn have to step out… waves and runs.


  63. The gold trader also was vastly dumber LOL


  64. Damn that fellow is really persistent!


  65. Rajini Rao re: RAJEEV Holy damn, that was the best party I’ve been to in months! I think I have multiply torn muscles!


  66. Feisal Kamil Dinner also interposed itself. I’d also have to say – some times the 500-comment limit is very much welcomed. Hyperventilating can leave a nasty headache. %^)

  67. Rahul Joshi says:


    Hilarious! :)) I’m saving these just for some Internet funn!

  68. Deeksha Tare says:


    LOL!!! I missed this post of yours Rajini Rao 


    Poor circle management again ! 😦


    sigh

  69. Rajini Rao says:


    No worries, Deeksha Tare . There is so much on G+ that we all miss posts 🙂

  70. Deeksha Tare says:


    Did you reach safe and sound Rajini Rao ?


    🙂

  71. Rajini Rao says:


    Yes! Will describe my adventures soon, Deeksha Tare , thanks for asking 🙂

  72. Deeksha Tare says:


    Ooooh! Great Rajini Rao 🙂


    Waiting eagerly! 🙂
