Introduction musical genius, existentialist, gamer, writer, and whatever else I feel like putting my mind to.

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

Funny you ask. No, when my bio teacher at Patch American High School, Mr. Hanks, froze a daffodil in liquid nitrogen then smashed it onto the desk, it made an anti-climactic "crunch" noise instead of shattering into a billion pieces as we'd anticipated. It was much less cool than the time he mixed sulfur with magnesium, or lectured the entire class with the red-kneed tarantula on his shoulder.
