The Toxins That Threaten Our Brains

Leading scientists recently identified a dozen chemicals as being responsible for widespread behavioral and cognitive problems. But the scope of the chemical dangers in our environment is likely even greater. Why children and the poor are most susceptible to neurotoxic exposure that may be costing the U.S. billions of dollars and immeasurable peace of mind.

So I saw poop…

I never see poop. Not even mine.

Everyone tells me that that’s not normal, specially because I am stuying clinical laboratory science, but it is just not something I want to see.

But finally, eight semester came and I just HAD to see and smell other people’s poop.

And I might just get used to it, because I have to do it again on monday.

And here is my lab partner, the poop, and me… with a very accurate face expressing my feelings:

Why the Sky is Blue explained in ten seconds - YouTube

When I was in high school I had a biology teacher who told us that the sky was blue because the ocean was blue.

Needless to say, teenager me (being the nerd I was am) was shocked and told her (in a very respectful way) that it had nothing to do with the water in the sea, but with the atmosphere and sunlight. I actually googled the answer in the middle of class and proved her wrong infront of everyone… Which was a pretty stupid thing to do. She hated me ever since.

And that’s why you never correct your teachers in public. Not even when they state the moon doesn’t spin on its own axis. True Story.

I really need to learn how to read with music in my earphones… Grandma’s soap opera is getting really interesting.
