Yesterday, I spoke of Alex’s #Scifund Project (link to her project Chemical Warfare in the Intertidal).
@Alex_Warneke combines two of my loves in life, old school rap and sweet, sweet marine science all for her #SciFund challenge. Alex want to know how heavy metal contamination mucks up normal interactions between predators and prey. This in itself is a fundamental question that gets at the heart of how marine systems work and how humans are interfering with that. Alex needs a measly $2500 to support this work. Of course its small change until you are poor graduate student. How does the rap fit in. Alex’s clever video is a homage to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The video itself is worth a donation. I was going to post the video here but you should head over to her #Scifund page to view it.
So Alex was gracious enough to send me the lyrics to the song. Want to see them? Donate $50 to her project (which I will match the first to do so) and I will post them to DSN.
Here’s a taste
In west San Diego I was born and raised
In the lab is where I spend most of my days
Writin’ out grants cause money’s real cool
And reading some pubs between going to school
