For myself, I can say this: I can give you the best sections you've ever
seen on my cryostat.  But when I tried to use a cryostat that had
disposable blades (in which you have to pick the section up from a
completely different angle), I was terrible at first.  I think you really
need to get a technique down.  It takes a few slides to get used to a
microtome, at least a frozen one.
Maybe with a paraffin microtome it's different because getting the section
on the slide isn't about the knife angle and the slide.
Either way, if I had to do sectioning on an interview, I would be so
nervous, I'd probably do terribly.
That said, thank god I have a job (for now!).


The whole point of this country is if you want to eat garbage, balloon up
to 600 pounds and die of a heart attack at 43, you can! You are free to do
so. To me, that’s beautiful.
