Science Readings and Their Conveyances

Quote reading conveyance:




Cute, right? Super easy, super cheap and just really cute. I got this idea from the graphics fairy blog.

She posts all kinds of free Victorian clip art and images!

Some more science-y and nontraditional, literary readings, reading-quotes:

"For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love." Carl Sagan

"Science tells you love is just a chemical reaction in the brain,

Let me be your Bunsen burner baby, let me be your naked flame!" - John Otway


Love Poem From A Nerd
Like two foci of an elliptical
Your eyes entice me
Cause my cardiac muscles
To palpitate
As I estimate the distance
Between us
I've arrived
At the conclusion
That you're sitting
Approximately 5 feet and 11 inches
Away from me
7 and one half millimeters closer
Than yesterday
As you sit there
And I calculate your potential energy
I find myself wishing
That I could change
Y= mx + b
Into y = Unext2me
You are my complementary angle
I long to whisper
That Newton's laws
Were created just for you
Of course that's not true
But logic doesn't matter anymore
Because my feelings for you are growing exponentially
Like radiation, you penetrate through my skin
You watched my veins branch like fractals
While I reached for the pencil that you dropped
You listened to the logarithm my heart produced
At a near inaudible frequency
As I returned the pencil
To it's rightful owner
Like absolute zero
All molecules within me halted
In that moment
Your centripetal force sent me spinning
And though they say opposites attract
You didn't even utter a thank you
It figures
Seeing as the probability of you noticing me
Is exactly 1 in 10,032
But I long
To cosine my name on a love note
Addressed to you
You are the Pascal behind my triangle
And you can count on the fact
that I'€™ll calc-u-late
