Debate and discussion of any biological questions not pertaining to a particular topic.
For extra credit, my biology teacher has challanged us to find mistakes in movies regarding biology. They can't be obvious, sci-fi types of mistakes that intentionally require a suspension of belief(For instance, saying Spiderman is a biological impossibility doesn't count.). It's supposed to be something that the movie was trying to explain/do correctly, but did it incorrectly.
One example was in A Few Good Men, where there was a wrong explanation about fermentation. After hours of scouring the internet, I found one; in Mission Impossible II, they show a virus replicating. . . in red blood cells.
If anyone knows any mistakes like the ones mentioned above, I would very much appreciate a recomendation. Thanks so much!
CSI is full of mistakes and head banging moments, and not just for biologists.
The twelve monkeys. When the guy release the virus a the airport from an empty vial

There was a movie where a scientist looked at Ebola viruses with an electron microscope and saw them moving and squirming about, although nothing moves in an electorn microsocope since the samples are fixed - and viruses don't "move" anyway. I'll give you the name if I can recall it!
i always found the biology/chemistry in stargate sg1/atlantis tv series to be really stupid. anyone here watch that?
actually the physics and engineering there was worse
Oh anyone here watches Heroes, the tv shows? It's like x-men. That tv series is full of mistakes, it's like a goldmine unscientific things.
oh yeah just remembered, jurassic park. especially the part about having amphibians dna being more closely related than birds.
