if you're wondering about the name of this site-- it's probably natural, since only geeks like me would know ^^;;; tryptophan is the name of an aminoacid, which is an organic molecule present in a number of proteins in nature (try, W). it's my favorite molecule out of all that i've studied so far... i couldn't tell you why. i just like it for no apparent reason ^_^
the fifth version of this site features sohryu asuka langley from the anime/manga series neon genesis evangelion by studio gainax. the name of the design, as well as the lyrics in the page title, come from the song heavy cross by the band the gossip.
