05 13 29 49 CDR Who did it? (Laughter)
05 13 29 51 LMP Where did that come from?
05 13 29 52 CDR Give me a napkin quick. There's a turd floating through the air.
05 13 29 55 CMP I didn't do it. It ain't one of mine.
05 13 29 57 LMP I don't think it's one of mine.
05 13 29 59 CDR Mine was a little more sticky than that. Throw that away.

05 13 30 26 CMP No, hell; there's nothing in there.
05 13 30 28 LMP It goes all the way down to the -
05 13 30 30 SC (Laughter)
05 13 30 32 LMP Hell, when I got in there, I had to stick my hand in there and ... - He put it in the bag, didn't he? You guys been trying to stick it through there with your fingers?

It's on the record. Page 414.
Attention stomach! Your acts of expansion and aggression will no longer stand. If economic sanctions fail, the lower intestines will be forced into military action to halt any further production of toxic materials. Consider yourself warned.
Scientists have created a teeny tiny rocket that could swim around in your stomach and fix whatever ails you. You may have heard similar tales before, but this version has an excellent chance of landing in your gut thanks to a hydrogen-powered motor fueled by a hydrogen bubble.
Previous “microrockets" have been fueled by hydrogen peroxide, which disagrees with the human stomach. But this one can get the little motors zooming around at a speedy clip with a tiny bubble propelling it.
Wei Gao, Aysegul Uygun and Joseph Wang at the University of California, San Diego published their work in a recent issue of theJournal of the American Chemical Society. They say their microrockets, which are shaped like tiny tubes 10 micrometers long with diameters of two to five micrometers, could be used for targeted drug delivery, nanoimaging, or for the monitoring of industrial processes. They’re made of polyaniline (aka PANI), lined with a thin layer of zinc on the inner surface. When immersed in any highly acidic solution, the zinc loses electrons and gives off hydrogen bubbles, which means the minimotors self-propelled.
The lower the pH of the solution, the faster the minirocket will go. They reached a maximum of 1,050 micrometers per second, and the scientists say the pH range in the human stomach would create a zippy environment for their device, which can keep going for between 10 seconds and two minutes.
The fate of the free world may very well depend on prunes and fiber.
