Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

comment Does electricity cause damage on a cellular level?
I did think it was more likely to be physics rather than biology for the third rail. Really interesting answer though!

Insignificant at a glance of after Chi-Squared with regards to the foot-leg ratio of males/females? How big was your sample?

comment Why does so much variation exist within species?
I'm still not convinced we are quite 'there' with this question to be honest. Firstly I don't think acne can be considered a genotype (although there may be genetic factors). Are you talking about adult persistent acne or transient teenage acne (which 80% of 11-30 year olds are affected by)? Similarly I don't really understand your example with eye colour.

revised How does water buffer a sudden drop in temperature?
Rewrite to use SHC (as heat capacity as written wouldn't include a unit mass) and also changed to be in SI units in addition to including a full physics definition. Gave units for TC.
