Jeremiah became a science major because he wanted to gain superpowers in a lab accident. As a senior Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major, he has instead spent most of his time in lab breeding sea urchins, melanoma, fruit flies, bread mold, and the occasional carbon-carbon bond. In fact, the only science-related accident he has had was in the Animal Holding room of McCreary Hall: a Madagascar hissing cockroach once drew blood from his thumb with a well-placed, barbed cone of chitin. When he is not living in the Science Center, Jeremiah lives in Goose Creek, South Carolina, a land of salt marshes and giant mosquitoes where accidents, although rarely granting super-powers, generally involve fireworks—and scarred retinas.
