is it pathogenic?
Go as far as you can see, and when you get there you will always be able to see farther.

No, no as I said mmiaosmiling won. His turn.
But I was thinking about going to that level with some nice Salmonella serovar, or phage type.

MG1655 or O157:H7 for E. coli or Typhimurium LT2 or DT104 for Salmonella. You would still be guessing in a million year with a carefully chosen one :twisted:

Is it a chordate?
Is it an arthropod?
Is it an echinoderm?
Is it a mollusk?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

If it's a fish then it is a chordate.

Is it a member of the subphylum vertebra?
Is it a non-vertebrate chordate?
