Ok, not exactly within this thread topic, and I know there was a better thread for this somewhere in N&N, but it's buried deep and I forgot what it's called...

Anyways, here is an excerpt from my biology textbook:

Quote:
As an aside in closing, it is interesting that many of the historical experiments
revealing the circularity of bacterial and plasmid genomes coincided with the
publication and popularization of J. R. R. Tolkienís The Lord of the Rings. Consequently,
a review of bacterial genetics at that time led off with the following
quotation from the trilogy:

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
Oh yeah!
