insects

first bio lab — analyze insects
pretty funky things
the hissing cockroaches were huge, and very strong (you can barely pull them off any surface they hold on to)
the australian leaf insect, looks like a leaf — or tries to — complete with thorny and hard, autumn leaf coloured complexion … it wouldn’t let go of me — it grabbed on tight and just wouldn’t let go and the tiny little thorns dug into my skin
finally got it off
then the walking sticks (insects that look like … sticks) have these tiny pins at the end of their legs that they kind of dig into whatever they’re holding onto
fortunately they only have six legs, and the one on my arm only had five legs
finally got that one off using my pencil to pry it away

fun class nevertheless, a bit slow at times

  del.icio.us this!

    Hey–you’re blogging again. You told me you didn’t like to blog when you turned me down on joining our HP blog. I wonder if I should feel insulted.

    Our bio labs so far have been:

    observe this cell
    observe this plant cell
    now observe this fungus cell

    and you guys have real live insects (albeit nasty ones)?!

    whatever, i hate bio anyway
