The Emotional Geometry of Mankind

The real struggle of love is always caused by that there is too more than which one can accept, but not too little that one have given.

Since it is reasonable to ask for more love, whereas it is impossible to stop somebody from loving you without, sometimes even, hurting him/her. Hereby, it comes the unresolvable eternity among lovers in triangle relationship. Because good wills will not only be unable to bring everyone to a happy ending, but also pushing everyone to the inferno of more emotional agony. For this reason, romance becomes  one of the greatest main theme in human literature since the vey beginning.

Because of the geometric trait of a triangle, the stability of the shape is unbreakable. The opportunity to end this kind of struggle can only come from external. As the shape has to change by either the elimination of one side or the addition of a new side. The former will give people a comedy; the latter would always manifest itself as a tragedy. However, since the addition of a side require the simultaneous contacting and connection to two sides, and the power of pry the joint open, it is much harder than to break an existent side and le the other two left coincide by themselves. That is why there are more great tragedies than great comedies in the history of romances.

Small tips in biology/chemistry lab

  1. The concentration percentage showed in commercial strong acids (e.g. HCl) is usually w/w, mass concentration.
  2. Refill your agar with water as soon as you finish using it so that the residue can be easily cleaned.
  3. The last digit on any digital-displayed equipment for measurement is not accurate.
  4. The pipetters are most accurate just below the maximum volume. The more it deviates from that volume, the less accurate the measurement could be.
  5. Do not autoclave or overheat agar with phosphate, and this is why.
  6. Only use a high purity agar (e.g. Bacto agar) with minimal medium. If you are doing experiment using any kind of natural/semi natural medium (e.g. LB, BHI, AK, etc.), then use the much more expensive high purity agar makes no sense, because your natural medium contains much more unclear impurities in it.
