Jeff just called me to tell me that he watched this insane video from 1971 called Protein Synthesis in his Biochemistry class this morning. The movie was directed by a guy named a Robert Alan Weiss and was made for the Department of Chemistry for Stanford University. The video clearly shows that protein synthesis in your body is actually done by a pack of dirty hippies tripping on god-knows-what. It’s impossible to say what the best part of this is, the T-Factor wearing a black cape and a giant beard, the near-narrative music, the poetic stoner narrating, or the fact that Jeff goes to MIT and they’re still showing this there.
Skip ahead to about 3:30 in and you’ll see what I’m talking about, the beginning is just some Nobel prize winner blabbing on and on…
