    Four surgeons are taking a coffee break:
    1st surgeon says "Accountants are the best to operate on because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered."
    2nd surgeon says "Nah, librarians are the best. Everything inside them is in alphabetical order."
    3rd surgeon says "Try electricians, man! Everything inside them is colour coded."
    4th surgeon says "I prefer Tabs. They're heartless, spineless, gutless and their heads and arses are interchangeable."

    But is that due to the interchangable-ness? If so, that's cheating! :ahhhhh: :vroam:

    what do you mean by non-glandular? All endocrine 'glands' are non-ductless so aren't typical of what people think of as glands (i.e. in the exocrine acinar/tubular way).
    My lecture notes say:

    Single cells or clusters of cells not anatomically definable as a gland can also produce hormones, there being many examples in the digestive tract.

    That's what I was going off

    Cool - in that case they're talking about ductless glands , not glands persay...

    You'll need to double check but I think that insulin and glucagon are both secreted from endocrine tissue in the pancreas...

    I think the example you gave of g-cells are as well, given that they secrete a hormone...

    Yeah, I know.. i meant "non-glandular" in that cells/tissues that were not glands (whether ductless or not!) but could secrete hormones.

    I think I am just not going to give an example, it's too fraught

    Yeah - I know what cell types secrete them - I just wasn't 100% sure that they were ductless...

    thank you very much elles and va va voom

    they were all pre-interview and i have no idea why i was rejected...got 3A*, 8A...I didnt declare my AS grades but got 2A and 2B..predicted 3A for A2

    AFAIK i have done everything you can to 'show-off' from sports, academics, work experience

    all i can think of is that my personality may have come out wrong or my teachers reference wasn't that good...who knows

    would volunteering once a week suffice as I want to be earning money throughout the week
    my friend worked as an auxiliary nurse in his gap year, you get paid then. he was rejected from all 4 unis but got in the next time round. he also did some travelling.
