histology can be a total pain to study for, but more than occasionally i am struck by the sheer beauty of some of the images. ok, i'll admit it, i'm a total sucker for arsty looking scientific images - they do make studying somehow more interesting. i think for some people knowing how prosaic some of these images are will obliterate the magic, but then again i think there is infinitely more wonderment in knowing that every one of us has such intricate modern artwork in our bodies! the mind boggles.
