I wonder how many lab folk jokingly say "take that you fuckin mouse" one time and then find themselves staring at the ceiling at three in the morning over it

A friend of mine told me about that doing her post-grad

Get mice out of cage

Put in gas bath to sedate

Press pencil across top of neck, pull tail

Put in Polytron to reduce to soup-like homogenate

Repeat ad infinitum, asking yourself what the gently caress you're doing with your life

I assume polytron is something specific and the indie game company doesn't coincidentally make a mouse masher.

So uh. Where's the science part? Do the mouse heads get tested for cancer or what.

She was infecting them with some microbe then giving them different treatments and testing how much of the microbe had been destroyed by the treatment and what byproducts the different treatments produced. The best way to do this is with a soup-like homogenate that has minimal sample aeration.

I remember someone posting an ad here from a science mag, of a low foam biological homogenizer. It was essentially a laboratory-grade industrial blender for mice.

It is also, I assume, what snakes use to make margaritas.

I guess that also begs the question of how much real estate and pellets does it take to produce enough mice fast enough that you can maintain a full time industrial mouse killer position?

I'm imagining a minecraft mob grinder with mice.

Some labs will breed in-house, but most places working at a high volume will order mice from breeding facilities, basically mouse farms. Or mouse factories.

I knew someone in undergrad who had a summer job at the mouse factory. It was apparently pretty fuckin' grim.

i hadn't seen the satanist guy video in years; i started watching letterkenny recently, and i thought the guy had made it big with that character playing stewart on the show...

i was very wrong i guess, but they've got the same vibe.
