A scientific experiment?

You might have discovered that blood can be used as a diagnostic aid for fungi - after all, people use silver nitrate and a few other reagents to identify some species!
One could imagine mycologists out on fungus forays, covered in sticking-plasters...

should

I am now going to take some plaster's with me after that accident plus make sure my knife is locked.I bet your right about the mycologist's too,a dangerous hobby we have chosen.
