Ghost peppers are known as one of the hottest peppers available.  This student brought one to his Long Island, NY school. When he let a few of his friends try some of the pepper they ended up in pain and he ended up with detention. He says the school likened bringing the ghost pepper to bringing LSD to school. The school principal maintains that the punishment will stand. The family's lawyer argues that the school should not be able to limit what kids can bring with them to lunch.

Leonhard Euler was born in Basel in 1707 to parents in the Reformed Church. Euler's father was a family friend of the Bernoulli family, a family of very prominent mathematicians and physicists of the time. He entered university at the age of 13, getting his Master of Philosophy degree at the age of 16. He spent weekends studying under Johann Bernoulli, who convinced Euler's father—who had previously wanted his son to devote his life to theology—that Euler should go into mathematics, thus beginning the career of one of the greatest mathematicians of all time.
