Butterfly dissections and the Fly Cognition Lab

I figured I should post a brief update about the other two labs I work in:

The Butterfly Lab

I am now dissecting out the abdomen of female cabbage white butterflies. It is a nice change of pace for me. I just love cutting dead things up!

The Fly Cognition Lab

I kind of miss actually having the little fruit flies flying around the lab, getting into my lunch and trying to crawl down my neck when I changed their food during selections. Annoying then, such antics have come to seem like a sweet half forgotten dream … At least I still have plenty of egg scans left to count. And auditing for missing scans. Sort of.

Crazy Fly Lab stuff.

  1. The updated Fly Lab sign with my name on it. I drew the fruit flies on the lab sign myself. The one in the upper right is female and the one in the lower left is male (in case you couldn’t tell).
  2. The Fly Lab is associated with the Jay Lab, which is why the toy fly is holding a Blue Jay feather.
  3. Before you ask, no I have not tried to follow Mr. Miyagi’s advice. Yet.
  4. My favorite comic strip. Just remember it when you think about mad scientists taking over the world. They are really engineers. Scientists could care less.

Casey #8 – Breaking Bad Season 3 Episode 10 “Fly”

Directed by Rian Johnson

Cinematographer: Michael Slovis

The initial storyline of this episode is a simple one: Walter finds a fly in his meth lab and he wants to get rid of it. He eventually recruits his partner Jesse to help. Throughout this episode, macro shots like the one above is shown. This puts a strong visual emphasis on the fly: the sole representation of Walter’s frustration. The fly’s presence aids in exemplifying Walt’s obsession with power and control. The macro shot’s extreme depth of field helps in placing the audience in the place of Walt’s obsession.
