OT: My Portista from wounds experiment!
Understandably, the notion the Portistas come from wounds is one not that hard to imagine, but it is, scientifically, a notion hard to accept. So several weeks ago when my dog got a scrape on one of it's paws I decided to take a sample of the infected tissue and store it in a lab dish to see what would materialize.
At first, nothing appeared to be manifesting -- week one went by and nothing. Nada. No changes to the infected tissue.
Another week went by and still nothing...
Not willing to discredit Portista claims so easily, I decided to take the dish with the infected tissue from the windowsill and placed it instead on an environment more suited to current Portista dwellings in case it had something to do with the bright, dry atmosphere of the windowsill. So I placed the dish in the most damp and dark worm invested hole I could find in my yard, even added some of my dog's most fowl smelling feces for good measure… and VOILA! After one day I carefully removed the dish from the mess and lord and behold, the tissue was alive with an active eruption of puss! This was an amazing discovery in itself, but nothing prepared me for what I saw when I put the slide under the microscope!
Gentlemen, prepare yourself for the most hideous thing you've ever laid eyes on since Rosy O'Donnel came out in a leather dominatrix outfit in "Garden of Eden".
I smell Pulitzer, baby! Or, is it just the puss? Whatever! Here it is:
