Meathead Science Teacher

One of our class experiments in high school involved injecting young chickens with testosterone and then documenting their rise in aggression. At the time I assumed that our meathead science teacher was trying to teach us about the dangers of genetically modified food or hormones in our food, or maybe he'd created this experiment in an attempt to inspire much broader conclusions about the effects of performance enhancing drugs and the choices we make. But in retrospect, I'm pretty sure he was using the experiment as an excuse to use the school's money to buy steroids that he would use for himself. He was pretty jacked, and, like I mentioned, a meathead. In the end it turned out to be a lesson in not drawing much broader conclusions.
