Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Isn't It Ironic...

I just had the worst lecture in Microbiology this afternoon after the worst midterm. I came home and lay on my bed and watched TVO Kids. Playing was the end of Zoboomafoo. After the show ended, the host of the station taught the letter "A" and how to read the word "read".

Interesting.

All I got from that was, "I need to learn to read before lectures/midterms, so it doesn't ironically get rubbed in my face by kids' TV programs after them".


Darn good and sure of it,
