• Building a desk.................?

    Ok, so I decided that instead of buying furniture for my new room, I am going to build it. It might not be cheaper, but I think it will be fun. So I got a used Dewalt circular saw and drill for cheap. Can I build a good desk with just those 2 tools?

  • What caused my food poisoning?

    A few months ago I somehow got food poisoning. I ate fried fish, then about 2 hours later I began vomiting non-stop for about 24ish hours. I didn't get any sort of treatment, the symptoms just stopped after about a day. I don't think I had a fever, but then again I was too out of it to check/notice. I have 2 theories... 1.

I didn't get any sort of treatment, the symptoms just stopped after about a day. I don't think I had a fever, but then again I was too out of it to check/notice. I have 2 theories... 1. Improper storage of fish caused the fish to produce large amounts of histamine. I ate the fish and consequentially ingested a large amount of histamines--->vomiting 2. Fish was contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus (or some other pathogen), which produced an entertoxin once inside my stomach---> stimulation of vagus nerve---> vomiting I'm really curious if anyone has any ideas, because this was the worst I've ever felt in my life.

  • Tolerance to self antibodies?

    Ok, so in class we are talking about how mouse derived antibodies cannot be therapeutically used in humans because they are foreign. Instead, we can use recombinant DNA to produce an antibody that contains the V region from a mouse and the C region from a human. He says that this hybrid antibody is still immunogenic because of the mouse V region,... show more
    Ok, so in class we are talking about how mouse derived antibodies cannot be therapeutically used in humans because they are foreign. Instead, we can use recombinant DNA to produce an antibody that contains the V region from a mouse and the C region from a human. He says that this hybrid antibody is still immunogenic because of the mouse V region, but not as much as an antibody that is entirely mouse derived. My question is, if our immune systems are capable of mounting a response to variable regions on Ab, how do we not produce immune responses to our own variable regions. Are all our antibodies tolerated against all the endless combinations of our other antibodies...That seems unlikely? How does this work?

  • Uncontrollable urge to drink water?

    I had an interesting thing happen to me a few weeks ago. Maybe someone knowledgeable about the human body can give a reason why this might happen.

I ate 2 fillets of fried catfish from my local discount grocery store...I know, probably not the best idea. 3-4 hours later I began to feel very sick, and I soon began vomiting. This lasted for an hour or two until I had nothing to vomit up. At this point, I was kind of hallucinating/dreaming...constantly being between awake and asleep (like when you get a bad cold and can't sleep at night), about me owing an auto shop. When I was fully awake, I had the uncontrollable urge to drink water. I would get out of my bed and fill up a glass of water and chug it. I remember that it tasted so good. After I was done, a few minutes later I would get another glass. This would continue until I began to feel sick from drinking so much water. Eventually I would vomit up pure water because I couldn't stop myself from drinking more water. After I had vomited, I would feel better for maybe 30 minutes, then the cycle would start again. I probably drank 2 gallons of water, judging by how full my trashcan was of water-throwup. Why would this happen? I would be interested to know!
