I mean, what are you going to do?

3rd year physiology. you have to participate in these 3 hour lab things where you get to (have to) operate on a live sheep which involves trying to kill it, for the sake of trying to revive it's heart with adrenalin.

2nd year physiology. where you have to write up this laboratory on the dive reflex -- only the laboratory set-up doesn't actually allow us to test the dive reflex. because the dive reflex was a physiological response that kicks into people when people have their faces submerged in water and they do not breathe for... i don't remember how long... but it was quite some time... it was time enough for their body to do a 'i am going to die' shutting down response so the heart rate drops... in the lab we weren't going to play 'soldier (or perhaps jewish prisoner) has been dropped in the water! how long we got!' so we changed the experiment so it involved only 30 second breath hold. which, of course, isn't long enough for bradychardia. so we redefined bradychardia so that we managed to produce a dive reflex!

at least, that's how we were supposed to write it up. if we wanted to pass. our data found evidence of the dive reflex, you see.

never mind mark houser or whatever... nevermind falsifying data or lying about what you did... you do what you are told when you are told because you are told if you want to pass physiology.

only... if that's what it takes to pass physiology -- i don't want to pass physiology. anything that requires any of that... just ain't worth doing. any grade from the person who has co-ordinated all of that... just ain't worth earning.

don't get me started on other degrees.

the solution is supposed to be to huddle with the herd. just write what everyone else writes. we don't have a group plagarism thing for science. you go along to the person in charge and you play dumb and say you don't know what to say / what to write and they tell you and you write them down verbatim.

that's basically it: you write them down, verbatim. the people in charge.

then i guess you are left with: and what is it that they are teaching you? anything worth knowing?

does it have the potential to help things better or worse or much the same?

i am tired of being treated like an idiot.
shushed in seminars.
and so on.

what would the world really have gained by employing me as a philosopher?

happy vibes they prevented me from doing what it was that i actually wanted to do... to try and help make things better for us all...

because people can't see beyond their own little pocket.

i am done talking. and... everything. this year...

there is no way around: i did everything in my power. and have had it beyond everything. the complete and utter sh*t hole garbage heap of here. i have been saying it for years... wasting my life... because other people are too f*ck*ng stupid to have things any other way.
