Brain in hand

This is why I know I could never work in the medical field. I just watched a segment on the Discovery Channel, hosted by the effervescent Ziya Tong, about a brain bank in Quebec. It's a research facility that houses and reseaches human brains, taken from cadavers.

Part of the research involved slicing the brain into thin sections, so researchers could examine the interior.

As soon as I saw one of them lift a brain out of the jar, and saw it covered in a slick-looking liquid, I started gagging. Watching her slice it only made me wretch even harder.

Mad respect to people that can stomach it. The things I watch so that I can tune into Ziya...
