kkleiner writes "Over the past few years, several research teams have developed increasingly smaller and cheaper biosensors with improved detection capabilities and faster turnaround times. Whether you are a doctor diagnosing patients in the rural areas of Africa or a Homeland Security agent working to thwart an act of bioterrorism, one of these little devices should be your sidekick."

    I read this as Three Ground-Breaking Minotaur Binosauruses. I didn't know what it meant, but I smiled and clicked anyway. I dunno. I expected horns and scales or something.

    Then I wondered if there were a dinosaur named Binosaurus, so I googled "Binosauruses" and there was a single return. So I clicked it. After the purple burned my retina, I closed it and RTFA, "Fast, small and cheap. No, I’m not describing the latest compact sports cars..."

    It started with a car analogy. I just gave up at that point.

    By any chance did you experiment with mind-altering substances in the 60's?
