How to ruin a perfectly good educational opportunity – have a heart

image of a whale heart
Image of a whale heart pinned on Pinterest

This photo has been doing the rounds of Pinterest recently captioned as “the heart of a blue whale”.  I haven’t been able to find the original source of the photo or been able to confirm that it’s a heart from a whale.  Regardless – it’s a big heart and an impressive photo and there are more of them here.

My point here is that it is obviously a photo taken in a lab of a heart that is going to be studied.  It would not have been easy to get and it obviously wasn’t easy to maneuver into the lab.  And what have they done?  Chopped the top off it and made it almost completely useless as a teaching specimen.

What a shame.

Freaky fashion: Cherry necklace

Ok, so there isn’t much freaky about it and I was supposed to post this *ages* ago but hopefully I can make up for my slackness today.

You might remember this little lady from Pussy’s Bowtique?  She recently made an appearance, with a mention of Pussy’s Bowtique, in an article about Dissection Connection that was published in a local Gympie magazine this month.

In an inspired bit of promotion Jen from Pussy’s Bowtique ran a repin competition on her Pinterest page and I won this pretty little cherry charm.  All the charms fit on the same necklace so you can mix and match to your hearts content.

You can get yourself one via the Facebook page or at Pussy’s madeit store and if red isn’t your colour (really?) you can get accessories custom made to match your favourite outfit.

Sorry, Jen, it’s taken me far too long to talk about this.  I’ve found, though, that it goes with nearly everything so you’ve been getting a lot of attention out and about.  Love your work,
