If you’ve been following the story of a Delaware school board’s decision to remove The Miseducation of Cameron Post from its high school summer reading list, apparently the final decision is in — the entire reading list has now been removed.

That means not only has Cameron Post been removed, other books including Gene Luen Yang’s Boxers, Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park, John Lewis’s March, and even John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars will no longer be recommended as summer reads for incoming freshman at Cape Henlopen High School. A sad end to a really wonderful and diverse reading list.

fuck it, let’s just stop having students read altogether, they might be exposed to things and stuff

Many thanks to @MikeatPrinceton for sending me this tumblr page, that will guide you to “Art of Science”, a  exhibition site from Princeton University that explores the interplay between science and art, exactly the same philosophy who inspire this very blog. So I picked out some nice pictures from the 2013 gallery for this post, precisely these (from top to bottom and left to right):

- Light eddies

- Bridging the gap

- The history of gliding

- Electron turnstile

- Worm water slide

- Conducting path

Blossoming flame

- Hoodoos

- Tropical sunset
