I think the fact that Chinny was hatched supports his claim that hatched things are evil. Though, I suppose Chinny can’t hatch further…

It reminds me a little bit of that episode from Futurama, where Bender is floating in space and a little colony of lifeforms evolves on him. The bacteria are much less submissive or interesting, unfortunately.
If ever anyone calls you gross, be sure to point out that they have ear hair. As useful as it may be, it sounds pretty nasty.
The brain activity goes from small, frequent waves when focused to large, infrequent waves when sleeping. I think I’m too relaxed to get past alpha, unless I’m playing LFD2.

This is, of course, going off the premise that life started with either DNA, RNA or something similar and proteins or something similar. Since all life on the planet has DNA and/or RNA and utilizes proteins, it seems like a safe bet.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and nucleotides are the building blocks of DNA/RNA.
Another word for the shedding or getting rid of the skin or, really, just a part of their body is “moulting”. True story. The word for shedding a layer of skin and hiding the giant shell of yourself outside your roommate’s door is “fun”.
The immune system’s response to the same disease that it has already faced will be both faster and stronger. The fact that it’s faster makes sense, since it already has the successful antibody. However, the explanation for the fact that it’s stronger is that it’s a mutation due to random chance. Since the memory response is pretty much invariably stronger, I’m not really buying that it’s “random chance”. It just sounds like a “yeah, we totally understand this completely” thing. It sounds like it is a mutation that just isn’t completely understood yet.
