Worse than Ebola
By now, the top false-color micrograph should be frighteningly familiar. It’s the Ebola virus, fear of which spreads faster than the actual pathogen. Below is something far more deadly – and even more familiar: the flu virus.

Go get vaccinated.

today we started reading A Midsummer Night’s Dream in AP Lit/Comp and our teacher asked us to characterize Nick Bottom in 2-3 words and I replied with “he’s kind of a jackass” and she just stood up, high-fived me, and then sat back down to teach class
