I didn't want to make 12 seperate posts.. as this place doesnt get new topics often :x

so anyway

Has anyone heard of / been to Fermilab? Its a particle accelerator in Batavia near Chicago, Illinois.. We went there in Physics for a field trip.. ( 4 hour driveee!!! )

It was kind of interesting ;3 I got a glow-in-the-light ruler.. its mad cool XD

Ummm.. they were the people to first discover the top quark. At the moment they have the highest energy collider in the world... but CERN is gunna make a better one soon.


anyway.. AND..

This plant.. ive asked at several forums.. so i figured id try here too. Noone knows what it is >_<

I got it from my teacher for 'mothers day'.. it was supposed to be called a 'dark knight' somethinoranotehr.. but any searches for dark knight bring up something that is NOT it lol.

It's really tall and cant stay up by itself.. it needs a cage to keep going up. It grows rather fast... There's no flowers.. the leaves are just a darkish purple/pink colored.. not waxy.. the leaves when formed are bright green till they mature..

thanks! ^^
