Noice received a lovely invite from HUBSS today to a Halloween Social, featuring free BerryLine and…bioluminescent dinoflagellates?!
Free BerryLine = Yessss.
Our own flask of bioluminescent dinoflagellates = WHAT IS THAT.
HUBSS = WHAT IS THIS.
For the rest of you non-sciencey types out there, dinoflagellates are tiny alien-looking wrigglers of horror. Okay fine, that definition is a failure. So let’s go to the trusty Wikipedia:
“The dinoflagellates are a large group of flagellate protists. Most are marine plankton, but they are common in fresh water habitats as well. They make up the largest group of eukaryotic algae aside from the diatoms.”
HUBSS is the Harvard Undergraduate Biological Sciences Society. Major props to them for bringing these glowing microbes of terror to the general Harvard undergrad population. For your own flask of glowy wriggly things, check out Ticknor Lounge this Friday from 7-9pm.
