I knew about bacteria talking a little from my dental hygienist. I like the explanations and the emphasis on the positive bacteria, it really is amazing how little of us is us.

How about this for distracting http://robotic.media.mit.edu/projects/robots/leonardo/overview/overview.html

Leonardo is a robot developed by Professor Cynthia Breazeal of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab in conjunction with Stan Winston Studio and DARPA. About two and a half feet tall, the robot is covered in synthetic fur and has a vaguely humanoid body with highly mobile face and arms. Leonardo was developed as part of MIT’s Sociable Robots project, which aims to build capable and appealing robots that communicate and learn socially from people.
