The secret to being witty. "The wittiest among us are simply people who make unusual connections between words and ideas. There’s a refreshing element of surprise to these observations that prompts a smile or a wince from the listener who didn’t see the link until it was presented." Wit is basically my raison d'etre and is the highest compliment you can pay me. I wish there were more opportunities for that to come across in my writing.
Scientists image atoms with record resolution close to absolute physical limits. “[It] can reconstruct ultraprecise images with one-trillionth of a meter precision. You can see individual atoms and the chemical bonds in molecules. […] ‘This doesn’t just set a new record,’ Muller said. ‘It’s reached a regime which is effectively going to be an ultimate limit for resolution. We basically can now figure out where the atoms are in a very easy way. This opens up a whole lot of new measurement possibilities of things we’ve wanted to do for a very long time.’”
