Terrible Swede the "Earthy" Lutheran Blog vs The Largest Filipino on Earth vs "The Fluffy"
Doctrinal differences are important to the Lutherans because at the root of every false doctrine is the devil, seeking to destroy the Gospel.

Richard Smalley: 1943-2005 (Oct 31)

...Eminent nanotechnologist Richard Smalley has died in Houston in the US at the age of 62. Smalley received the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of buckminsterfullerene molecules, or buckyballs, together with Robert Curl and Harold Kroto. He died on 28 October following a long battle with cancer.

I remember that in 1996 - he had discovered the third purest form of carbon, dubbed as C-60. The first being the diamond, the second being graphite.
