Never Alone: The 500 Gut Bugs Within

"It's a whole other planet down there."

So much for the late-night snack that I was contemplating. Even my intense love of Insalata Caprese isn't enough to overcome the vision of the 500 or more species of microbes (some previously unknown, based on gene[!] analysis) hitching joy rides on "Whovilles" throughout my digestive systems.

Awwww, shit.

I'll betcha tomorrow morning is going to be one of those times when I'm unfortunate enough to remember my dreams.
