We have another fine entry in the plasma-cell contest, this time from my college roommate, Rachel:
How about "the cell formerly known as plasma" ? Then you can shorten it to the catchy TCFKAP if you want, or you can come up with an incomprehensible and unpronounceable symbol for it too!
Ah, but what would the symbol be? And what, exactly, does it sound like when doves cry? These can be secondary, spin-off contests.
I want to congratulate Rachel, because she just earned her PhD in chemistry. Now we all have to call her "doctor." Just think: I knew her back when she'd play Super Mario Kart for hours on end. Well, she probably still does that. You just have to call her "doctor" while she's playing it. Here is a link to her blog: http://spaces.msn.com/rmillen/
