One hundred three-year-old Agrace HospiceCare patient Marie Hunt received her high school diploma Friday.

Marie Hunt is a life-long Spring Green resident. She said she had no way of getting to and from high school so she stayed home after 8th grade and helped raised her eight younger brothers and sisters.

She would have been a graduate of the River Valley High School's class of 1928.


You have to wonder if she smoked cigarettes with the cool kids during recess. Or how she handled dodgeball during gym class.

Yummy Moon by artist Yona Lee uses 450 partially eaten Nilla Wafers to depict the different phases of the Moon. A photo on Lee's site shows the artist using a projector to map the image and match the shape of the cookies to various shapes needed to display the Moon's phases.

Science for the Masses used chlorophyll analog known as Chlorin e6 (or Ce6) to give healthy eyesight temporary night vision. This chemical is found in some deep sea fish and used to treat night-blindness. 

The group hypothesized the chemical could be dispersed into the eye and give a form of night vision. 



Via Mic:

Did it work? Yes. It started with shapes, hung about 10 meters away. "I'm talking like the size of my hand," Licina says. Before long, they were able to do longer distances, recognizing symbols and identifying moving subjects against different backgrounds.

"The other test, we had people go stand in the woods," he says. "At 50 meters, we could figure out where they were, even if they were standing up against a tree." Each time, Licina had a 100% success rate. The control group, without being dosed with Ce6, only got them right a third of the time.
