How cool is it that when you take all the cells out of an organ it still looks like an organ?
I remember when I was in high school and still very confused about how tissues worked, because all anyone taught me was that we’re made up of piles of cells hung on bones. But that’s not how it is! Cells build themselves little hammocks of polymer and densely branched glycoproteins; we’re like onions, layers of membrane over tough rubbery collagen, huge protein scaffolds cradling slippery organs.
Bodies are not made of cells — bodies are made by cells.

A REMINDER THAT DONNA IS THE BEST
Friendly reminder in one novel a character says ”flipping” a lot and The Doctor goes ”Yeah that’s the TARDIS’s swear filter”
Suddenly I like the word “flipping” very much.
imagine the 12th Doctor going: you flipping flip. get out of flipping TARDIS you flipping piece of flip.
i would cry
*knock knock* “FLIP THE FLIP IN OR FLIP THE FLIP OFF!!!”
