“If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years, how man would marvel...”

Quote of the Day:

“One of the illusions of life is that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. No man has learned anything rightly, until he knows that every day is doomsday.”

Ralph W. Emerson

it's kind of creepy. what if your double was a murderer and could use your identity against you. i wouldn't want to know my twin...although it would be nice to have an alibi...;)

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

The stuff being developed today was considered Science Fiction when I was a young man. I've used a similar type foam for years with RTV molds to make various things, especially terrain for model railroads. I never would have made the leap from using it like that, to using it's expansion properties to stop internal bleeding, but someone did. Bully for them!

I just love these sorts of stories.
