    No, you're not. Countercurrent flow is the main mechanism for concentrating urine. And it is powered first and foremost by active transport.

    The day's only just begun, but I've already had a shower, put my clothes in the wash, pooped, and made a sandwich, in that order! I just need to shave now. Haven't done that in a while.

    Wrote my first computer program. It's just Python, a simple exercise for a course, but it's still something.

    First we drafted the lambs.

    Then we crutched out the <bad> ones.

    Finally we moved the lambs out into the paddocks.

    Pretty simple day.

    I picked up some medicine for my bedridden mother, then finished a history of global science by Dick Dick Teresi.

    I did my (teeny tiny) part for cancer research, again. I signed a second consent form allowing my blood sample (given a few weeks ago) to be used in a second, related research project.

    Deadlifted 162.5 kg for 12 reps.

    Managed another day's wonderful procrastination at work.

    Left on the agenda: Clean house to prepare for open-house showing later this week, hopefully we'll have sold the place by this weekend.
