I'm so lucky to be paid to do funny things, like playing with stuff like DNA or other glowing things or just sitting in a chair and sketch in my lab-notebook some graphs concerning the behaviour of signals over time. Unfortunately, there is a tax to pay for living such a lifestyle: you will suffer from a persistent susceptibility of getting ideas about your work, every moment of your journey. Sam, like me, is an "every day scientist", and can not taste the mother of brandy, without speculating about fluorescence. What a life!
Unfortunately, cognac fluoresces in the blue-green, so forget about using cognac as a tracer for in vivo experiments involving humans.
