Dreaming of heaven...of the electrophysiologist's type

I've often said that in electrophysiologist's heaven, there's no series resistance, and you have an infinite number of solutions in a special magic fridge/shelf, containing every possible permutation of divalents, weird anions, or whatever.

Cause dealing with the lack of those two things is a series pain in the ass.

*sigh*

I bet an undergrad would just LOVE to make up a thousand different solutions--see if you can con one into it!

Dude. Also infinite aliquots of magic internal that never goes bad.

Heh, so some folks out there have similar feelings.

I just don't trust undergrads with most of my solutions. Usually it's not just the physical preparation (though that can be a pain with internals), it thinking about all the different things that might impact it. Like, oh, I want to change calcium, should I replace with magnesium, what if mag blocks directly, what about the surface charge, blah blah blah.

Though then in making them up, I realized I screwed up one of them and had to redo it. But in the end, it's really that I just super anal retentive about my solutions.
