Into the drudge of a darkened room of dirty fantasy I broke my mirror on her slipper so soft and gentle that it caused an electromagnetic rift that shot through everything even separating the air particles.

When scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory focused the full intensity of the world's most powerful X-ray laser on a small molecule, they got a surprise: A single laser pulse stripped all but a few electrons out of the molecule's biggest atom from the inside out, leaving a void that started pulling in electrons from the rest of...

Educational systems here in the US simply suck. They have been dominated by political, ideological, and theological tensions and considerations to the point where I believe these schools can no longer teach students that most of important of skills ... learning how to learn. How to think. How to encounter new information and digest it. They fail miserably with the "normal" kids ... students who require a bit more attention, or innovation, from their teachers are completely left in the dust. In my extended family, we have a child on the spectrum ... he was deemed "unteachable". We gave him a better learning environment ... he is now regarded as a mathematics and science whiz with a genius IQ.  I guess the point of all this is that we human beings tend to identify a "normal" state of being ... and that definition is often really fucked up and limiting.
