The composition of a water molecule explained in “Beyond the Microscope,” a GE science film from 1922.
This is great! New YouTube channel idea: Vintage science films. I call dibs.
I guess it’s worth noting that this is not at all what electrons actually “look” like or how bonding works, but I don’t really mind for some reason.
I will never forget the day. September 12, 2006 is the day I purchased you from B&R Uniforms in Hackettstown, NJ. That was seven and a half years ago, can you believe it? I was sixteen years old and a day earlier, I had received my EMT-Basic certification from the State of New Jersey.
Since that day, you’ve been a constant in my life. I’ve never been on an EMS call without you. You’ve been saturated with blood, sweat, urine, feces, emesis, and tears (both patients’ and my own).
You’ve been run over, spit on, and have helped me escape from countless dangerous scenes.
You’re the only other thing who has seen every patient I have ever treated.
You were with me through Paramedic school, including my clinical and ride times, the hardest and most intense educational experience I have been through.
After my shift today, you will retire. You are filled with holes and are raggedy beyond repair.
But I will never get rid of you. Your presence in my life and my home is almost spiritual and symbolic. Each time I look upon your scuffs and tears, I will remember how they came to be.
I can not thank you enough for your years of service.

I’ve been cheated my whole life.

Finding the career you were meant to have in life is one of the most amazing feelings and to think that there are people who are working jobs they are unhappy with hurts my heart.
