Sleepless somewhere near Seattle

Hey Reeders!

Sorry no pics as of yet, been super busy. I got 2 hours of sleep last night, but i should be able to get 6-7 tonight. I got a few hundred worms up and running, and am doing a variety of experiments right now. Hopefully these samples will keep me quite busy for the next few days, but I should have some time in the next couple to give a more proper update.

Helpful tips to those doing deepsea, high pressure work:

- Air is the Enemy!

- Saltwater is bad for everything that isn't biology

- 7/16 is the wrench of choice for connoisseurs of high pressure worm work

-Death IS a data-point

-Rotten egg smell - good. Rotting animal smell - bad.

- The pump clicks will either drive you insane or to a higher plane of consciousness.

That is all for now.
