Histology Quotables

Today's lectures were rife with classroom quotables, I'll put them out tomorrow. But for tonight, I'll leave you with my favorite, from my histology prof:

"Every time you take a drink, God kills a hepatocyte".

Taken from http://www.apn-histopathology.unimelb.edu.au/gallery.html


And on that note, a cocktail I created tonight, which I named, "The Majestic River Shannon". It is a glass of cava (brut) with a splash of elderflower cordial, and a peeled quarter of orange. Deeeelicious.

And yes, I may have had one or two before making this post. Forgive grammar, punctuation, and spelling...

I wish our lecture-givers has any sense of humor. Even just a tinge.

1 hepatocyte down, 143,566,754 to go.

Bah. They all regenerate anyway.

So it is God who causes cirrhosis and not the alcohol? I'll drink to that.

Cara--See, the funny thing is, she is a very serious woman usually, which made the comment even funnier when I heard about it.

IANH/Grump/OMDG--Exactly.

Cardio--Never thought of it from that point of view! hahah
