That was some spooky microbiology. 👻🧫 It reminds me of the healing "Angel's glow" reported by wounded civil war soldiers. Thanks for sharing all of that important information about antibiotic resistance! #FinishYourPills

Every time I order a vodka tonic at a bar, the bartender asks me if I want a lime in it. my response is always, "Yes. I need to prevent scurvy." I get a lot of weird looks.
