How pathetic is it, that while sitting in lab and doing experiments, I am reading this and thinking "Aw man, that sounds awesome!" Of course, I also really like the "DNA Explorer" kit from Discovery Channel store. I can no longer find it, but it was awesome (and had the centrifuge that the author says is sadly absent from most chemistry kits) and... man. If I had a relatively young cousin, I would want to get them nerdy toys. And I mean really nerdy toys.
Also, if I ever have a basement or a garage, I need to have a mini-lab there. Perhaps for recreational chemistry as I become more of a biologist. (The term "recreational chemistry" makes me smile).
