How many students does it take to plate some phage?

The answer is apparently 6. Yes that’s right 6 whole students. Well that’s what the course organisers seem to think. So I can’t help thinking am I really paying 10 grand to fight over a Bunsen? I swear one poor girl lost half an eyebrow in the upheaval. I mean what was the point of putting us I such large groups? It certainly wasn’t to show the importance of collaboration as I’m assuming 6 people normally don’t need to do the same experiment simultaneously. Or is this a new way of creating jobs? Oh yes, 6 people can do one persons job and then they can pay us in shillings. Common guys: I’m sure you can do better.
