Hi bim!

Gilmer -- remember you're responsible for explaining how this relates to our thread theme -- how is it a gift to the universe? If it's the leprosy bacterium, you'll have some explaining to do!

D'oh! I never thought of that...some viruses are probably good. Maybe?

Yes, Bim!

Hepatitis E, to be specific.

The photograph is of a hepatitis E capsid, which is the protein shell of a virus, which encloses the nucleic acid.

If I had my life to do over, I'd probably study viruses. They are the Kings of adaptability.

Thatís another gift that the virus has to offer: learning to adapt to a new way of life is an important recovery lesson!

No thanks..we have to figure out trach's weird underwater creature.

Maybe a mosquito? I mean he does live in the land of biting insects. I thankfully found my way out.

^^^ you've inspired me to look at Hep E virus images. There's definitely a case to be made for them based not only on being Kings of Adaptability but design elegance, symmetry, and power. Good job, G!
