In this instance I discovered something about flies that I was completely unaware of until I went to a Fly seminar. Flies have 3 hearts - the main heart and an additional small heart for each wing. That's ONE more than a time-lord!
I was hoping I could find a video of them beating but have failed. I'll try and ask the person who gave the talk if I can borrow the clip.
I guess this is true of many winged insects. Which makes me wonder if a dragonfly has 5 hearts?

Unsurprisingly, said mini-preps were comfortably nestled inside the freezer. The centrifuge lid was open in what appeared to be a mocking laugh. I walked back home and got a take-away so the trip wasn't a complete waste and nightmares about work were avoided.
Doubt is a dangerous thing.
