On Shabbat I cut my finger. A couple of days later it started getting a little infected. The area got red, warm and hard and now, a day later, it isn’t hurting anymore and apparently it’s healing.
I’m horrified. The disproportionate force displayed in my body makes my blood curdle. How dare millions of antibodies attack a few, innocent bacteria? Was that, in any way, a fair war? The poor, innocent bacteria, who were just looking for a nice place to be, were slaughtered in cold blood as a number many times larger than themselves came down upon them with full force, not holding back in one bit.
Possibly the worst part of this whole thing is that the antibodies didn’t even give the bacteria a chance. The moment they sensed the entry, they attacked. They did not even allow the bacteria to spead at all. They didn’t allow them to multiply. They didn’t give them a chance to make any comfortable home for themselves.
Biology appalls me.
P.S. Feel free to let me know if there are any mistakes in the biology written here.
