book, scienceWhen we stop at the thrift store each weekend we never have a solid idea what we would like to take home. Instead, we take a look at what they have to offer and, if something is truly attention-grabbing, and it’s dirt cheap, it goes in the basket.

Such was the case with this week’s purchase of Science: A Story of Discovery and Progress. It grabbed my attention because looked a lot like the text books that were foisted upon me while I attended elementary school, except that it was in near-mint condition, while the books we got were pretty beat-up.

This book was filled with scads of helpful illustrations designed to mold the mind of aspiring scientists, but what sold this book to me was the frontspiece:

science, atomic bomb, mushroom cloud

Damn, that says it all, doesn’t it! Science! Discovery! Progress! And how we use it to blow everything to hell!
