Hey guys, I wasn't too sure where to place a video link like this, so I'll take a chance here. I saw this video some years ago when I was an undergrad, but I always thought it was INCREDIBLE. It's a pretty good look at whats happening in the cell (with an obvious cinematic twist to it, and the reactions are happening like 1,000,000 times faster).

you see alot of cool processes from: the Goli, The endoplasmic reticulum....... and my favourite part!!!! at about 1:17 , you see a Neurotransmitter being carried to its vessicle :frantics:

Oh and if someone already posted this link...MY BAD :)

I remember from my physiology class that a single cell has over 200,000 working parts. Each cell is like a machine (some say like a galaxy) and we have approx. 75,000,000,000,000 (trillion) of them.

Hmm...good thing, that random chance took place :laugh:

I just got done studying animal and plant cells in the last unit of my bio class. We're currently on genetics, but I did need this fresher up on cells since it will be on my final. :wacko:

Great find. :cool:

That's awesome. The inner workings of a single cell is probably the best evidence of the existence of GOD. I think there is more likelihood of New York City being created out of a hurricane than a single cell arising out of random chance.
