“I am not well read, but when I do read, I read well.”
Happy birthday Kurt Cobain!
FYI: The grunge god, Kurt Cobain, fancied making artworks during class lectures wherein he would frequently sketch anything that is associated with the morphology of the human body. (As read on a paperback version of Cobain’s Other Expertise Compiled in College Paper)
In 2007, the Department of Water Protection in Los Angeles detected high levels of bromate, a carcinogen that forms when bromide and chlorine react with sunlight, in Los Angeles’s Ivanhoe Reservoir. Bromide is naturally present in groundwater and chlorine is used to kill bacteria, but sunlight is the final ingredient in the potentially harmful mix. When the Department of Water Protection realized the problem, they began construction of a new underground reservoir in Griffith Park, but while the new facility was being built they had to determine a way to keep the sunlight out of the water.
