Reading BPL daily has re-wired by brain's dictionary

I was reading up on infectious diseases, wiki page for E.Coli in particular.

Escherichia coli [1] commonly abbreviated E. coli) is a is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium

First thought is: wow! Gram negative on the gear list.
Second thought is: what? that doesn't make sense.
Third thought is: hmm may be diarrhea makes you lose weight, so its gram-negative.

There's a reason why I do not work in the medical field. Not good at it haha.

so if your gear is too heavy, get infected with E.Coli to lighten your load.

Do I really need to follow this up with a "Smiley face" or a "Just kidding"?

Maybe it is gas filled and lighter than air and therefore gram negative.

I once knew a guy named Gram. Not sure what his last name was.

I like this gram negative phrase. Seems like a good thing to ask people and see what comes back (e.g. first date "are you gram negative?")

Speaking of negative... there's also 'negative impact' hiking -- meaning picking up more trash than you leave behind (if any). :)
