As evil as a butterfly

See, I have this fear of moths... And even butterflies seem scary when they decide to fly towards me with their fluffy bodies..

Happily, a few years ago I discovered that my cousin also has this phobia... Well, you know, not that it's awesome she is scared of those insects too, but I was happy to realize I was not the only weirdo in the world.

However, it never crossed my mind that this fear was actually a thing.. that even has a name. Mottephobia it is! And that's not all, there are communities/ support groups ready to accept me.

Ah, I love this planet.. I love her so much, I will forgive her she has left those disgusting fluffy creatures live.

In a hurry for a deadline

I am recently having plenty of deadlines to meet. And somehow, the last few days of every single period, I feel like I have to be that fast when completing my tasks:

Sandcastle science

Sandcastles are not only a cool thing for a child, but also are a good research topic...

Recently researchers discovered the secret to building the perfect sandcastle. You would never guess, but apparently, it's all in the water.

Now go make the calculations so that you can impress the rest at the beach this weekend.

PS: Don't you sometimes wonder who finances some researches?
