brains

I couldn’t resist:

We’re wrapping up week eight of nine of Brain and Behavior.  Recently, I’ve been studying in the empty classrooms in Stemmler (good light, lots of table space, distinct lack of chatty undergrads [no judgment]).  Today I walked into a vacant one that looked like the perfect place to settle in and learn about cocaine.  As I started to get my computer out, I noticed a faint, familiar odor, and I looked up to see a wall lined and stacked with containers of full and half brains (looks like the specimens from all the other rooms had been consolidated here)–didn’t we demolish them all before Spring Break?  I think I might be ready to start Repro now.

    You can smell human brains from across a room? Cool! Have you ever considered a career as a zombie? I hear the hours are much better than medicine.

      Ha! I love it! Thanks so much for the shout-out…I guess I really missed my calling. More importantly, what calling did YOU miss??

        Being able to rhyme words together opens many options…poet, wannabe rapper, crazy person on the street corner. It’s a shame, I think I could have been good at number 3.
