Three Cool Thoughts.

What could be the first of a regular segment on three thoughts I heard this week that made me stop and think:

1. Make small stuff do big things. (via Professor Wade Adams, Director of the Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science & Technology at Rice University)

2. Some things aren’t rocket science; they’re much more complicated. (via “Traffic” by Tom Vanderbilt)

And the I-sleep-fine-thank-you-but-still-this-is-pretty-awesomely-worded thought:

3. If life is really as short as they say, why is the night so long? (via M. Ward’s “Chinese Translation“)
