That is a pretty cool honor, but (kind of) read the whole article and now I feel itchy . . . . I couldn't really find the Rush "Easter eggs" the authors said they put in the article but I might have missed them, I was trying not to get weirded out!

I read this yesterday and i was going to post a new thread on it but ,either i am psychic or i am dreaming ,i thought there was a thread already about it.I thought it might have been a joke.I like how P.pearti has a rotating wiggle about him.He would be doing air drums to Tom Sawyer.However'all the busy little creatures living in the guts of termites' doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

They're lyrical references are pretty clever. I caught a few. But only because the article mentioned them so I knew to look for them. I would probably have missed them otherwise.

"and in some lineages cytoskeletal elements were replicated to form patterns both so grand and complex that they were considered to form a lineage" references Natural Science: "A pattern so grand and complex..."

"and a long history of mistaken identities has led to too much contradictions and confusion in its classification" references Different Strings: "Too much fuss and bother, too much contradiction and confusion"...

These guys like Permanent Waves.

One of my favorite honours. It just makes sense on a few levels.

For me, it beats having a star in Hollywood.

Yup, Rush will eternally live on in the bellies of termites.
