What's wrong with my PCR?!
« on: August 18, 2006, 04:45:54 AM »
I. Bad karma hypothesis.

Background:
This is basically the "God is punishing you" hypothesis. It sometimes gains a great deal of favor.

Symptoms:
- i) All rational explanations have been exhausted and yet PCR still is not working for you.
- ii) Persistent feelings of guilt (if you are a Catholic, this symptom could be misleading).

Tests and solutions:
- i) Try bungee jumping. If you survive, God must not be too hacked-off at you.
- ii) Atone for your sins and start over at the top of the flow chart.
- iii) If you end up here next time, have someone watch you next time you set up your PCR reactions.
