Showing off the prettier side of research is all the rage this week. From Beth Halford's recent piece:http://pubs.acs.org/cen/science/85/8520sci2.html to psi's latest blog post:http://coronene.blogspot.com/2007/05/sonogashira-party.html

Fragment to fragment clings, and thus they grow
Until we know and name them.
Then by degrees they change and are no more
The things we know.
