Disgusted by my antibodies

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.

  1. Ken Yirbu! May those antibodies be fruitful and multiply. I just experienced the need to use synthetic antibodies in a liquid form called anti-biotics. I hope that I don’t need to do that again for a long, long time. Have no mercy antibodies!

  2. i don’t know anything about bio, fortunately. perhaps i learn a bit, perhaps not. So funny bumping into u on the street after lets say 15+ years, and now i’ve bumped into u on-line, what are the chances. in truth the first occasion was pure coincidence. this encounter was more of an initiative on my part, after i saw your article in the community news paper. i was curious about what else you had 2 say in writing
    Nachum
    p.s i have a plutonic date with that lebanese gentlemen with whom i was debating outside of the shul, how funny is that, he couldn’t get enough of my verbal assault on his so called human rights advocacy
