Head shop counter guy, explaining the difference between pipes with carbs versus pipes without
(I was shopping for white elephant gifts!)
One of many mind-bending concepts and questions broached by Dennis Overbye in Sunday’s Times.
My newest obsession is cosmology. Been watching a lot of nerdy, NatGeo-type series on Netflix this summer — How the Universe Works, The Cosmos: A Beginner’s Guide, Where Did We Come From?, and the like. I highly recommend any or all of them. World(/universe) view-changing stuff.
First, during the 1900s, a scientist named Michael Wolman by accident found that a type of fugus [sic] stops bacteria infection. He was conducting science experiment on bacteria and surprisingly, one type of fungus defended itself against the bacteria. With this precious piece of information given, he immediately stopped working on his bacteria labs and focused on the fungus that we now know as Penecilin….
Another example is Thomas Eddison and the discovery of light and electricity. Thomas Eddison started off looking for ways to make electricity currents and like Michael Wolman, he is man that puts his effort on trying out things that are new to him. This is why he did so well in his carreer and ended up inventing light bulbs.

That’s what I get for telling them the SAT essay readers grade them strictly on their arguments, not their facts…
