The post-grad student is scooping eyeballs out of the sacrificed subject's forehead with tweezers. The question is whether they rely on c-opsin photopigments like normal vertebrate eyes, or protostome r-opsin visual chemistry (implying that Hera used sophisticated genetic-transfer capabilities to create Hundred-Eyed Argus with the compound-eye ommatidia of an arthropod).
Unfortunately Principal Investigator Juno has dropped the whole handful on the peacock's tail while copping a feel of the post-grad's boobie. Is this professional behaviour? IS IT BOGROLL. Learn from this teachable moment, Marsden Foundation; perhaps next time you will award the research grant to the "Argus' Eyeballs: Ciliary or Rhabdomeric Photoreceptors?" proposal put forward by the responsible and well-regarded team at Riddled Research Laboratory.
The other research assistant at the right is ready with the flask of monoclonal antibody that will fluoresce bright green if -- consistent with the c-opsin theory -- phosphodiesterase is present. Right now she is having second thoughts about the project and is quietly wondering how to switch laboratories.
See, we are lining up the experimental subjects already.
