Biolol* (for Biolog*)

Biology classes, particularly the junior high school kind, can sometimes cause students to LOL, especially when the subject at hand is the human body. Just like with women's stockings, there's "nude" and then there's "transparent." And then, of course, there's "gray," as in Gray's Anatomy, the go-to book for what all's inside us. Genuine intimacy, which frequently leads to good sex, can often allow people to "see right through" their partners. And sex is primarily a function of the brain and the genitals, plus (some would passionately argue) the important inclusion of the heart. But, truthfully, every part of us plays a part. Laughter has also been shown to be closely related to orgasm. I'm not trying to be funny, though, when I say there were four cases of today's typo in OhioLINK, and 151 in WorldCat.
