Finishing a BSc in Biomedical Science in 2014.

I have several years worth of experience in web development and programming as well as basics of graphic design (meaning that I like toying with inkscape).

I'm a language nerd and a private science geek. I love techy stuff and wish I had the time to fiddle with electronics myself, but to that regard even building my own PC will have to wait for a while now.

More about language than biology

comment Does any animal species have two sexes and more genders?
What sort of other classification are you thinking of? There are lots of different classifications, e.g. both male and female humans can have any of the four blood groups. Another example could be dogs (or a lot of other animal species) where another classification is race - each race has male and female dogs.

comment Why are red blood cells considered to be cells?
The most prominent other non-nucleated corupscules are platelets. If you consider why they aren't called "cells", you'd arrive at the conclusion that it's something to do with one RBC originating from one precursor by eliminating its nucleus, rather than one precursor producing lots of non-nucleated membrane bubbles (i.e. megakaryocytes). Then again, jargon calls platelets thrombo-"cytes" ;)

I'd say it's much more likely eliminated simply to free up the space. The nucleus is a massive organelle and takes away lots of space the cell could fill up with haemoglobin.

Indeed - comments are better for statements of opinion. In answers, please try to provide reasoning why one phrasing might be better than another.

comment Why is there no cure for Dandruff?
Dandruff is dead scalp, i.e. skin. Your skin everywhere is constantly renewing itself. Everwhere else in your body, dead skin gets scraped off on e.g. clothes, things you touch etc. so you don't notice it - dandruff gets caught in your hair and thus you do notice it. Dandruff is not a condition, it's a consequence of natural healthy skin turnover. If you aimed to prevent it from forming, you would interrupt a natural process and most likely also incur some sort of damage. Thus, the best way is to get rid of it periodically once it has formed - i.e. wash your hair ;)

Please edit your question to include those details (where, why,...) for future readers , as they will then be more likely to attempt an answer.
