Snippets of my biology lab class
This is Ciara. She majors in Psychology. She's a professional dancer. I mean, she can practically turn any simple move into a rhythmic movement--like frog dissecting, for instance. It makes you wonder why some people are just graceful.
This is me with the frog Wegs and I dissected. Tired and nauseated by the formalin fume, I still managed to smile. I guess cameras do that to people.
This may look a bit gory, but that's precisely the message I want to drive at. Mind you, it looks more awful when you see it face-to-face. But let us remember that the frog, naked and poised as he (or she) is, has merely fulfilled his (or her) lifetime goal: to become a specimen for the progress of biological knowledge.
He's Juanchi. Another lab partner. He too majors in MBB. In this photo, he seems to be enjoying the prime of his life while the entire frog populace mourns for the loss of one of its species. But I guess that's taking it too far. Juanchi isn't barbaric at all, but a selfless Filipino who believes, with all his heart and mind, that no one can possibly quantify the impact a single frog can create in our world.
Why do we all act like this?
I guess Wegs's camera does many things to people. It destroys people's insanity for at least ten seconds.
