Oh, I do know that is the problem-the slides that were used in the first 
place.  The other problem is, I wasn't the one who cut these; it was 
someone in a completely different lab, who uses slides from Mercedes 
Medical (bad batch, maybe?),  who cut these sections for said professor. 
I keep telling him to either snitch a box of my slides to give to them, 
or let me cut for him-he himself has said that when I use my Gold Seal 
Ultrastick slides, those sections never fall off.  :o)
