Lime 'n' Dust underwent a name change

The new name of this blog is Cheesobacillus furiosus. We at Cheesobacillus furiosus feel that it better reflects our view of the scientific world today. And our intense love for Cheetos, Cheesies, and all other forms of artificially-flavoured neon-orange rod-shaped cheese-like snacks.

It all started from our abuse of Latin species names in our Mic-Phys class. Two species names appeared on the screen: Pyrococcus furiosus and Congregibacter litoralis. Aaron's initial dirty joke, that started it all, was that it would be funny to stick a "C" in front of "litoralis" (oh come on, it's funny). Then I observed that Clitoralis furiosus would be quite possibly the funniest possible bacterial species name. However, it would be too offensive to be the title of this blog.

So about six months later, Aaron commented on the rather bacilloid shape of cheesies. We decided Cheesobacillus would be an appropriate name. In keeping with our love for C. furiosus, we compromised by making Cheesobacillus the genus name to replace Clitoralis; hence, Cheesobacillus furiosus is born.
