Ugh, I'm working on Yet Another Damn Cold!
Is it just me? Or does this feel like a particularly bad season for that kind of stuff?
Atomic Theory of the Moment
"The way it was explained to me is that protons give an atom its identity, electron its personality."
--Bill Bryson. He begs off on describing valance numbers, but this summary goes well with what little I know of atomic theory, and I like it.
Quote of the Moment
"I was hesitant. But it is what it is. [My friend] needed help. There was beer. Good times. It was worth it."
--Grey Ruegamer (formerly a Patriot, now a Giant) on castrating lambs in the traditional Basque fashion. Which means with his teeth.
