This has been a busy summer for me. I took 11 hours of courses in two 5-week sessions, and also had eye surgery. This last 5-week session, I took Biology, a 4 hour class. I popped 2 Spike caps with my breakfast, and was buzzing by the time I made it on campus. I looked forward to spending 2 hours/day in lecture, and the other two in lab. Spike really helped me “see” things.
The last time I had biology was my freshman year of high school in 1992, and I had forgotten a lot of what I learned. With Spike, I was remembering detailed processes of mitosis and meiosis that I had learned 13 years ago. It was so surreal to be sitting there with laser-like focus, instantly processing lecture notes in real-time, as other students shuffled in place, and some slept. I felt like I has an AMD Opteron Processor in my head, as I could instantly understand what was being said, and I could foresee what was going to be discussed. I also attribute some of this to my major of Industrial Technology. In Industrial tech, we see things holistically( a process or system made of smaller inter-related components), whereas other people in class saw things as many unconnected pieces. I tried to explain the workings of mitosis to them, but I only saw blank stares. Out of the 64 students in that class, I was the only one to make an A.
Thanks Tim Patterson and Biotest for bringing forth such quality products and 24th century innovations to the 21st century. -The Starkdog
