Real version:

Starring: me, airsoft Beretta 93R and K562 CML-derived cell line (not a real gun, but real cancer cells Posted Image )

It was fun Posted Image

Our country has a serious deficiency in lighthouses. I assume the main reason is that we have no sea.

:D though those white crocs complement the lab coat they "clash" with the Beretta...so better upgrade to black leather assassin (kick-ass) boots....that shld put fear in every cancer cell heart...:lol:

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

hobglobin: I have no mercy with cancer cells, moreover I don't possess that many facial expressions as I'm kind of autistic :)

casandra: I use lab coat more often then Beretta in the lab, so.. that means crocs will stay ;)
