T-rexes have really good reflexes – microviscosity, science tattoos, wild pollinators

Welcome to this struggle-episode! We had bad connection problems which meant that we spent most of our time blaming each other for having terrible internet. In between the blame game, we talked about a molecular sensor for microviscosity, nerd tattoos and why Joram won’t get any of them.
