I’m a college instructor and a student said this to me during my office hours today. Tragic.
Ugh, wish that was MY problem
Myka: Let’s go save the world, Lattimer.
Pete: [imitating Bogart] Whatever you say, sweetheart.

“Smile. You’re pretty when you smile.”

“Myka, you are a stunningly beautiful woman. The day that I met you, I said, “What? I’m not going to be able to work with her. I won’t be able to stop looking at her.” But then I got to know you and I realized that you’re even more beautiful than I could see. And if that, you know, little teen fencer could see the beautiful woman that she would become, she would know that it’s her sister that should be jealous.”

MYKA: Do you ever think about our future here? Like, how do we NOT end up with our brains scrambled or blown up or…whatever new way to die there could be?
PETE: Well, I mean, look at the bright side. I’m usually within ten feet of you, so whatever terrible thing happens to you..will probably happen to me too.
MYKA: You know, when we play rock, paper, scissors…you don’t always have to pick rock.
PETE: I don’t always pick rock.
MYKA: (chuckling) Yes, you do.
PETE: All right, next time I will pick scissors.
MYKA: See, you shouldn’t have told me that.

Perhaps you’ve noticed a toddler’s sagging swim diaper and wondered if it’s really keeping the poop out of your neighborhood pool.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has the answer for you: no.
Last summer, researchers at the federal public health agency collected 161 filter samples from public swimming pools in the Atlanta area. More than half of those samples, 58 percent, were contaminated with E. coli.
That, the CDC reported today, “signifies that swimmers introduced fecal matter into pool water.”

‘It’s like when you come off a ride at the CNE’: Chris Hadfield describes the hard return to gravity
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield says his body feels confused and banged-up by the effects of gravity after a five-month stay in space.
After floating around weightlessly for months, suddenly, he needs to keep his own head aloft. He feels dizzy. And because there are no callouses on his feet anymore, he says, he feels like he’s walking on hot coals.
A first trip to the gym was excruciating, he says, because it felt like two people had jumped on him when he was trying to do a situp.
”My neck is sore and my back is sore,” Hadfield told a news conference from Houston on Thursday.
”It feels like I played a hard game of rugby yesterday or played full-contact hockey yesterday and I haven’t played in a while.” (THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Mikhail Metzel)
‘I’m in love with you. I’m really sorry if that’s weird for you to hear, but I needed you to hear it. Probably not good timing, I know that. I just… I just needed you to know. Once.’
