Bah, 4th of July. CERN announced evidence of the Higgs boson (out to 5 std devs!) this morning...science like that is way more awesome than any fireworks. Someone was playing "Born in the USA" quite loudly this morning, and I felt obliged to point out that it was a Vietnam War protest song and therefore not very patriotic at all...

Also, we played with liquid nitrogen (and made ice cream with it) today at camp, so that was also awesome. :D

All of a sudden I want some ice cream to go with my giant chocolate bar and shark book.
100% of deaths are somehow caused by science.
Don't be a statistic.
Don't do science.

Ah. 4th of July just doesn't seem the same when there are no fireworks to light or watch.

Ah, no. If I did, I would be following him :P I actually used to have a Twitter for my English composition class first semester senior year (we met every other day and my teacher wanted to be able to reach us quickly), but after the class ended I realized that all I did was retweet Neil deGrasse Tyson, so I got rid of it. I just have his feed bookmarked now.

Ring around the Rosie is such a twisted song...
It's about the Bubonic plauge for crying out loud!

Ah, how I love CERN, and oh, how I despise drunk patriots who get high because they're celebrating their country's "awesomeness".

Which is what makes it awesome, of course. Who doesn't love a good ol' rousing song about the bubonic plague?
Also, I feel compelled to point this out--you spelled "plague" wrong, you capitalized the song wrong, and you didn't italicize the song title. Also, you forgot a comma in your last sentence.

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.
