Biology Pareidolia

Forget Mary in the grilled cheese sandwich Jesus in an MRI scan; my officemate and I saw a seriously spooky image today.  We both saw something, but we can’t agree on what exactly we saw.  

What do you think: Does this sunlight reflected off of a glossy-covered industry journal onto the ceiling looks more like a golgi apparatus or an endoplasmic reticulum?

    Endoplasmic reticulum.
    Though, in all honesty, I think it looks like a hammer and sickle, Comrade.

  2. Jeremy Says:

    I think it looks like a flagellum and/or class-A ceiling spermatozoa.

    Okay, to me, it looks a bit like a skull but then again, I am spooky by nature heh heh

    A glass skull, totally. Reticulum, perhaps – less shapely, and, frankly, a bit overweight. Definitely not the golgi apparatus. The little dots on the ceiling are actually a part of the ceiling. Just saying.

      Oh you guys! If it’s a skull it’s totally not humanoid. I could see an argument being made for it being the Crystal Skull from that last horrible Indiana Jones movie. See how it’s elongated in the skullish region?

      @Jana – the little dots on the ceiling are soooooo ribosomes.

    You are all sorts of awesome.

    I see an alien skull and that you have truly earned your blog name today.

    The fact that media hasn’t descended on your building and a shrine been set up shows the liberal media bias against eukaryotes.
    It’s a mad, mad, world in which we live…..
