Mice Story 03

1. A weekly dose of Karma. Prof: “Although you ate less pork than LPS [my labmate], your karma is surely bigger than him.”

2. Now I’m working with mice implanted with human tumor cell lines. Chimera is real. It does not only exist in the mythology and video games.

3. And I just realized that this is a high risk job. I repeat: human tumor cell lines.

4. Lung tumor is slimy, watery, phlegmy, njijiki. Yuck.

5. Liver, stomach, pancreas, kidney, intestine, lung — tumors. Have seen them all.

6. Could you imagine having a tumor as large as half of your body? And to think that the mice would still survive with such kind of tumor. Supermice!

7. Me: “Hey Prof, since these mice have been living such a useful life, sacrificing themselves for the sake of human being, I think they will become cats in the next life.”

        By the way, sep, curious.
        Interaksi dengan sel2 (yang kecil) itu, Is there protection kepada kalian, para researchernya, dari bahaya terkena tumor krn sel2 tsb?
        As in, orang flu agak “diisolasi”, simply karena orang laen takut tertular misalnya.

          hehe.. sebelum exptnya kita mesti submit form dulu indicate bakal ada hazard apa ngga.. menurut scientist yg bikin tumornya ini sih ngga ada ya.. but we’ll never know. if there is a hazard, we will only know it in 10-15 years.

          Hoho. Very well then.
          It affirms that faith is included in every believer’s action, not? :D
          Onward, faith-ful scientist(s)!!
