What’s that? You need to make a 3D model of both a plant cell and an animal cell, and label the organelles? Awesome! I’ve been waiting for this assignment for ages. I thought I had a few more years, but let’s do this! I was thinking we could use gelatin as the cytoplasm, and embed the various organelles at different levels to- What? It can’t be edible? Because of ants? Oh, okay, I understand. But they’re totally missing out on my mad fondant skillz. What? It’s due TOMORROW? Okay, okay, I got this. I have a fucking craft room for Christ sake. You think you can break me? I’ve been training for this since before you were born. Gimme that paper.
HA! Are you kidding me? What are they teaching you? The only organelles they want are the nucleus, mitochondria, and vacuole? What about endoplasmic reticulum? Ribosomes? Centrioles? Hell, I’d take a Golgi body over a vacuole…
An hour later:
(Full disclosure: I pretty much did the animal cell (that would be the round one for all you neophytes) because it required the hot glue gun and epic dexterity *tips hat*, but the labels and foam and magnets and index cards etc etc were all her. I have already entered a 12 step program to help prepare myself to NOT get involved in any future science projects. I’m not gonna do it, you guys. I WON’T!)
