I chopped the heads of hundreds of C. elegans today. As I cut them with needles under a microscope, I could see guts and gonards splashing out of the bodies.. and it made me feel really guilty. It reminded me of the time when I disected a live fish, without anesthesia, in an elementary school. I still remember the beating heart that was left alone inside of the fish body.. The science teacher then was a strict catholic and that’s one of the reasons I don’t trust catholics.
