Rand Paul's Response to Obama's 2015 State of the Union

"The President is intent on redistributing the pie but not growing it. He misunderstands that the bulk of America wants a bigger pie. They want to work and don’t want a handout—but a hand up." ("Rand Paul's Response to Obama's 2015 State of the Union", Breitbart.com, Jan 20, 2015)

Flint and Steel Science

Word of the day pyrophoric. Understanding this word means understanding using flint and steel can start a fire. I learned about it here, "Flint and Steel: What Causes the Sparks?"

Pyrophorics are substances that spontaneously ignite below room temperature, which is about 70°F (21°C). By spontaneous we mean these substances will simply catch on fire of their own accord without you having to do anything such as light it with a flame. This is also known as autoignition.
