Fruit Flies

    I got a vial of fruit flies from my AP Biology teacher for Christmas, lol. Gotta observe them for two weeks and then we're going to study genetics by breeding them.

    ...there's a little typo there, binzing....you got a vile of flies. Surely "vile" is the plural of "fly".

    Bloody hell! I've bred some pretty small women, and felt inadequate, but I think that even I would rupture a fruit fly.

    I'm still in it; that's my primary concern. A job would be nice, but I can hold out for a month or so. (Longer if necessary, but I don't want my wife supporting me.)

    Hey, that sounds like fun! Can you distinguish the males from the females yet? :smile:

    So when I saw the title of the thread I thought "theory devellopment"? I've never seen fruit flying except after bad theatre plays.

    I don't think so Monique, for now we're just keeping them over break so they don't freeze to death at school and so they can reproduce. Then after break we're gonna start the crosses, I think.
