(7:54:59 PM) Silent: oh
(7:55:01 PM) Tangent 128: Like that.
(7:55:07 PM) Jane: I had to make one in Geometry Class
(7:55:18 PM) blissey1: good example image
(7:55:20 PM) Jane: Aw man they're just lines
(7:55:27 PM) Tangent 128: A protein can have hundreds of acids.
(7:55:30 PM) blissey1: lines that fold into crazy shapes!
(7:55:39 PM) blissey1: and that's apretty simple one
(7:55:43 PM) Jane: those aren't shaaaaapes!
(7:55:44 PM) Tangent 128: And those shapes are tiny machines.
(7:55:45 PM) Jane: those are just lines
(7:56:00 PM) Tangent 128: Not when folded like that!
(7:56:12 PM) blissey1: and these tiny machines will grab hold of other protiens
(7:56:16 PM) Jane: Froslass.
(7:56:29 PM) blissey1: and do stuff with them, like combine or serperate them
(7:56:44 PM) Tangent 128: Combining into bigger robots!
(7:56:49 PM) Silent: oh :D
(7:56:53 PM) Jane: VOLTRON
(7:57:07 PM) Tangent 128: YOUR CELLS ARE FULL OF VOLTRONS, JANE
(7:57:14 PM) blissey1: pretty much
(7:57:18 PM) Jane: What
(7:57:30 PM) Jane: I thought Voltron was a Combining Mecha
(7:57:33 PM) blissey1: it really is mind blowing
(7:57:43 PM) Jane: Oh my
(7:57:47 PM) Tangent 128: Yep. Proteins are mechas.
(7:57:49 PM) Jane: I have combining mechas in my bodeh!
(7:57:51 PM) Tangent 128: And they combine.
(7:57:59 PM) Jane: I have to reveal this to my Bio teacher
