You might be a geek if one bed is designated for sleeping and the other for your computer gear.

The Maldives, glittering from phosphorescent bacteria

Phosphorescence is a specific type of photoluminescence related to fluorescence. Unlike fluorescence, a phosphorescent material does not immediately re-emit the radiation it absorbs. The slower time scales of the re-emission are associated with "forbidden" energy state transitions in quantum mechanics. As these transitions occur very slowly in certain materials, absorbed radiation may be re-emitted at a lower intensity for up to several hours after the original excitation.

This activity is reminiscent of the bacteria which provide light for the well-known luminescent organs of fish living in the greatest depths of the oceans, . . . an environment inimical to the multiplication of the more familiar bacterial species. Presumably animal tissues are able to provide a substrate which fuels the bioluminescent reaction at low temperatures.

Wonder why I don't post often? It's because I still use twitter as my primary feed. Hopefully someday soon, it'll be possible to post twitter -> (faceback, g+) and do it all in one fell swoop.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
