i’d rather go out in a flaming burst of science than the bomb of militaristic ego. [translation: i’ve been thinking about our nightmare fire ‘president,’ and talking at fhb about the LHC and other scientific endeavors to create new elements/push the frontiers of science knowledge] and i realized—i would much rather die in a nuclear reactor meltdown, or scientific experiment gone wrong, than in world war 3’s miserable inevitability.]
