Yep - he needs to get himself in gear!

He had also better sign off on our pronouncements.

I considered auditory cells but couldn't find any data to back it up.

Oh man, I'm torn. RD alluded to them first but JB provided a very similar diagram... I think RD should submit an image next, since he hasn't played in ages.

My image was from here: http://scienceblogs.com/retrospectacle/2007/11/confocal_image_of_cochlea_wins.php
I chose it because of how stunning it looks.

FINE, your turn JB. If you do something geological, can you at least make it a pretty specimen? [^]
