        When your DNA replicates, it is the DNMT1 enzyme which maintains the epigenetic programming of the cell by copying the methylation signature of the parent strand to the daughter strand.

          Why do they call it the "daughter" strand and not the "son" strand?

            400 hz electrical current is used in some applications as it's sine wave causes less noise and artifacts in circuitry.

             

            Full wave rectifing bridges also produce DC current with lower impulses due to this.

             

            Consumer electronics don't require this purity of power.

            Wot? Run? I thought they said Rum!

                True story! And there really was a Cinnamon Girl. Neil met her on the street--she asked him out.

                    When milk goes bad, it turns thick and seems to try to solidify.

                     

                    When lettuce and potatoes go bad, they turn to liquid.

                     

                    Put lettuce and potatoes in a jar.  Cover with milk.  Keep at room temperature for three weeks.  You won't have what you started out with.

                    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                      I will have to try that.

                        If you push down the sustaining pedal on a piano and play one C key (like middle C), all the other C strings in the piano will also vibrate. Works with the other notes as well.

                          The band Bruce Springsteen was in when he was 19 was invited to play at Woodstock but they had a prior commitment on the Jersey Shore that weekend.  They didn't want to get a reputation for missing gigs so they didn't go.  The name of the band was "Child."

                            The Poisson Distribution is used to predict relatively rare events and was based on the number of Prussian Army officers killed by mule kicks.
