as previously mentioned (http://blodgett.doof.me.uk/2009/11/28/clarifications/) blodgett will now inform you about science, in particular the little particulars. the following diagram is provided for your instruction; it is suggested you have this open in separate tab for reference whilst studying the accompanying notes.
(if you have no tabs, hie thee to a decent browser: http://browsehappy.com/browsers/)
step 0: acquire a scientist. note the scientist wears its special lab hat for safety.
step 1: bubble some science goop in a beaker. do NOT attempt to inhale conical flask.
step 2: science has created the sugar cube! we will examine it with a magnifying glass (pipe optional).
step 3: we see that the sugar cube is made up of cubular Sucrose atoms (symbol Su, atomic number 222). this gives the sugar cube its distinctive shape, and the snazzy bits holding the Su atoms together are what make it crunchy. note also that there is a lot of empty space in cube, this is why it dissolves well in tea.
step 4: turn the magnifying glass up to 4. here we see an isolated Sucrose atom. it is perpetually grumpy, the cause of which is not having round corners. it is further aggravated by the bouncing sub-particulates in its Insides (not shown here).
step 5: zooming in further, we see the essential components of all atoms, called Quirks (chemical symbol Q+/–, in red and blue), carefully held within the confines of the atom by GLUONS (symbol GLUUU, seen in yellow). they are round and happy, and this is why life is good. their distinctive bouncing behaviour was the direct inspiration for the trampoline. (true story.)
and that is all for today’s science lesson. you now know everything there is to know about small particles. success!
