    The OSU health sciences department was once offering what sounded like a pretty good deal for students: $1200 for some muscle core samples. At first, even as a non-starving student I had considered participating. But it turned out that for $1200 they wanted something like 50 cores over a period of a year!!! OUCH!!!
