9. Thats just wrong
The people who do this as a profession have YEARS of education and experience. You CANNOT learn biology well by reading on the internets. Plus as some have said, no way they have adequate safety protocols! Fuck, these idiots don't seem to understand how they are endangering themselves!
All I can say is that MOST scientific equipment vendors will NOT sell to people like this, thank goodness.
I'm sorry, the risk vs. reward of meddling by amateurs is just way to high.
