I've got appendicitis of the brain

I realized it might be a good idea if I never attempt a physics Phd. Friday I was on my way to class and I felt this pain in the right side of my stomach. I remember thinking that if I had appendicitis then I wouldn't have to go to class for a few days. I think this is a bad sign.

Meet Isaac. He's a rough-skinned newt (taricha granulosa) but was sold as a "fire-bellied" newt as they frequently are. He's about 4 1/2" inches of slick squirminess and he is totally adorable if you like that sort of thing. Check him out.
