    Thanks Teejkay - I like that video. I studied Physics and then worked in research so that really touched a note for me.

    Cool, Teejkay.

    When I think of scientific research, I think of Alfred Tennyson's poem. It makes me think of scientists concentrating on their esotric areas of research hoping to understand the universe better.

    Flower in the crannied wall,
    I pluck you out of the crannies,
    I hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
    Little flower—but if I could understand
    What you are, root and all, all in all,
    I should know what God and man is.
