Microscope Matt is an employee for a top-notch science company.

Today, he had signed up to use the big scanning electron microscope for the first time. He had received so much training and taken many classes to be privileged to use this machine.

He had prepared a sample of an ant to be examined. Matt put the ant on the plate, and activated the machine. He took a look at the monitor, and saw a red fire ant, in the process eating what appeared to be a plant leaf - exactly what he had prepared.

Matt was positive that someone was pulling a prank on him. He checked the cables from the monitor and, sure enough, they didn't connect to the microscope.

How did Microscope Matt know he was being tricked?
