What’s especially neat about the OCS is that they can actually be used to improve imperfect donor lungs by flushing it with antibiotics and nutrients. Like refurbishing a lung, sort of. Putting donor lungs through the OCS helps increase and improve the number of potential donor lungs. Not every donor lung is usable, donor lungs that go through the OCS may be.
To go with my previous rant I google searched “Paris Hilton teacup pig”
The first picture is the ad she bought her pretty little girl from. Notice the breeder claims the pig will not get over 29 lbs when full grown. However, the second picture, that my friends, is well over 29lbs. And that’s a “teacup”?
This is why I always stress there really is no such thing as a teacup pig. If you get a cute little piggy, you need to love it FOREVER, and that means even when it turns into a FULL SIZED PIG.
"Macrocosm and microcosm is an ancient Greek Neo-Platonic schema of seeing the same patterns reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level). In the system the midpoint is Man, who summarizes the cosmos.”
