Have you ever dissected a cat?
I'm too squeamish. I couldn't even dissect a frog in 7th grade, had my friend do the lab for me.
We did a mouse experiment, and I let my lab partner take the wheel. Sometimes it's better that way, ya know? 😅
Yes, many cats and other typical animals. My friend did an autopsy on a horse - now that's a whole different level of dissection! I prefer microdissection - like dissecting insects.
Holy cow! A horse! That's crazy.
Insects would be cool. I've never done a micro one!
I dissected quite a few last year, but not a cat. The students the year before got to do that. One student even found a fetus in one. Now my science teacher has it on display in his room.
What did you dissect? And someone in my class has a fetus in their cat!
In high school for AP Bio
Did a rat a few years before that
Oh goodness! I could not handle a rat!
I could handle a cat, but definitely not a rat. 😱
This past semester. One of 7 animals we dissected in vertebrate zoology
Dang! What were the other six?
What were the other six?
lamprey, shark, water snake, bullfrog, pigeon, rat
I did a shark before. That is a cool selection!
Which one was the most interesting to learn about?
Ummm probably aves, just because I'm a bird lady (until about a week from now when I'll also be a reptile lady 😄)
Haha cool! A bird lady sounds cooler than a cat lady ahah.
I couldn't handle the rat though!
I have a cat too, but he's low maintenance 😸
Do you let your bird walk in your house and stuff?
I usually let my parrot Milo fly around freely when I'm home. I take him with me in public frequently as well. But my cockatiel Zeke can't be trusted
Milo seems like the coolest. That's dope you can have a bird in public. Awesome!
I've trained him not to leave my shoulder in public. Some of my friends call me a pirate
That's a good Halloween costume. Just get an eye patch.
That is fantastic! Haha
Sorry kiddo, this year I'm dressing as Ambellina
That'll be cooler than a pirate haha
I'm just a square.
That's a good one lol
I was Lorde last year haha
I could see that. Royals royals
I only know of Lorde because of that South Park episode
I only knew her because of the hair. I had darker curly hair at the time, so it was easy to wear black and have dark lipstick lol
I still have curly hair though lol
I was Harley Quinn last year. I'll make it my profile pic tomorrow for TBT
Cool! A girl at the party I went to was Harley Quinn. I want to see it!
Well, not as part of a class...
I kid! I kid!!
Or do you? 😛
Mine was part of class, too!
Actually, I was a conscientious objector to dissecting in high school. I did a frog in sixth grade and didn't feel the need to do it ever again.
Oh wow, that's good for you to stick to your guns.
Mine was my final, so it kind of sucked when I needed to know everything.
Does General Tso's count?
I am surprised I haven't! About everything else though
Yeah, I did the frog, shark, and cat. That's it, I think!
I have, in a comparative anatomy class. It wasn't easy for me. I had to go home every night & give my cats extra hugs.
Oh that would be awful!
And clearly keep your day's events from them... They may have had a coup
Yes, for IB bio. It was a hilarious time (my group was funny).
How was IB bio? I'm taking it this year.
Are you SL or HL?
I'm pretty sure I'm doing SL
I did HL, and it wasn't bad. My first teacher was better, but it was good. It wasn't bad, and I'm not a science fan.
I did IB chem SL, and that sucked. My teacher was terrible. 😕
Are you doing full diploma?
I'm doing Chem HL lol and yeah full diploma. I don't know if full IB is really hard. My bro said that they teach you time management and that makes the stress go away and as a result, it isn't that bad.
Full IB isn't really hard. You just have to do all the grunt work during the summer. It's really only like a 20 page paper, which is easy lol the tests aren't bad either!
Chem was awful. I'd rather have done IB Art lol
