Dear Mr. K...

your breadth and scope of knowledge of Anatomy is truly remarkable and something I can only aspire to. That doesn't change the fact that blood is not 5x as "vicious" as water (or at least, I hope it's not!). Also, "allele" doesn't rhyme with "ukelele". Just thought you might want to know...

Is there bad blood between you and Mr. K? Or is it water under the bridge?

I don't know.....as corrosive as blood can be I'd be willing to call it vicious some days.

Water at 20 degrees c is a little under 1 centipoise. Healthy blood at 20 degrees C is about 10 centipoise. So blood has about ten times the viscosity of water, at about room temperature. Otherwise, you'd bleed to death out of a paper cut. "A le-le". That cracked me up.

Og, but is it ten times as VICIOUS? ;)

depends if it contains the aids virus, in that case it's a good deal more vicious, though I don't know if you can quantify how much.
