    "When ever I am home alone I open a can of Sardienes. Why? Because Sardienes are good for you. They have a lot of DNA which is something we're supposed to eat a lot of". I remember it was quoted in the Gainsville paper but I can't remember who said it besides it was some lady.

    Edit: forgot the clairifyer. I think she meant protein. I mean I guess Sardienes have a lot of DNA but so do most other multi-cellular creatures.

    LOL, that's great. For some reason, when I read that, I imagine John Madden's voice.

    But everything we eat has DNA. Unless it's plastic....or rocks. There's a guy at work who has sardine sandwiches every day for lunch. Heats them in the microwave. Smells BAD.

    yes but some have more DNA than others. wait... no... eggs have... do eggs have multiple nuclei like those huge amoebas? or like slime molds? hmm.... yes... they must... otherwise the size would make it impossible... ok ... lol.

    Umm Alpha I think she meant "Protein" not DNA. Oh and eggs are one cell so only one set of DNA so most other living organisms have "more" DNA

    yes but things that big need more nuclei, like amoebas (who have many nuclei), so that they can produce more proteins and stuff. one nucleus can't control all of the cell.

    Yeah but think about it. Is a million celled Sardiene going to have more nuclei then an amoeba. I am not sure but I though amoebas maxed out at 5-10 and then had to divide. I know muscle cells have multiple nuclei that's actually the whole bases for what mono-nucleous does. It destroys all but one nuclei

    I wasn't saying an amoeba has more nuclei (some can have a hundred or so), I was saying that eggs would have the same concentration of DNA as sardines would.
