Science & Art.

I am on vacation in Guadalajara, Mexico. Today I was walking around in the center of the city with my family, when we found Mr. Miguel Maravilla (whose last name, Maravilla, translates from spanish to “wonder”). Mr. Miguel is a local artist who got inspired from science and atoms and now creates this wonderful crafts like the ones you see in the picture. 

I bought a craft that represents an atom.

I was just so happy to see local art and science together, amazing!

  • Last day of chem labs: spills silver nitrate all over hand and wipes it on pants

This is just too funny.

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
