I saw Counting Drosophila warming up for Halo of Flies back in 1988. Helluva show.

over qualified, really.

- & they still like bananas

I'm going to try the banana/apple thing on a couple of my friends who have no concept of time.

My endogenous clock rousts me around 0530 for her walk.

...also, who doesn't wake up with a banana every morning? Guys, am I right?

The fruit flies can also tell that these scientists have too much time on their hands.

More prospective Apple Watch customers.

Is that the meaning of "time flies"?

Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
