"lasers" and hair
I work at a highly respected US Institution, surrounded by highly expensive machines, things that use "lasers" and require you to wear a white lab coat in their presence. One of my favorite bits of kit is the scanning electron microscope (no lasers for you pedants out there), the machine often used for taking those fab close-ups of insects or pollen grains or other tiny things. So, I get paid to take funky pictures of scientific things, but if I get bored, I can put other stuff in there. You'd be amazed at what pubes look like at 10 000x magnification...

(working in a highly respected US Institution means I can't access b3ta at work. yah boo sucks)

SEMs are fun
I was about to put a fly in one once. I had it all coated in gold and everything. But I was apprehended and 'advised' not to do it...

Ah yes
but have you ever used the gold sputter coater to take cheap jewellery and give it a nice layer of 100% gold. Not that I'm a massive cheapskate or anything.

I did put a fly in one.
Well, a moth.
It was for a real reason though, not just a whim.

You can't access b3ta but you can magnify your pubes? Interesting.
