|"FYI, Decamole was used by Julian May, in the Saga of Pleistocene Exile (Many-Colored Landy, Golden Torc, Nonborn King, and Adversary) and was likely mentioned in later series in the same worldset."

|"The implications of the discovery of graphene, its properties, and potential technology that may flow from it are briefly discussed in an article entitled "Smooth operator" in The Economist, March 18, 2006 issue, page 77. The article asserts that graphene "demonstrates a characteristic never seen before in any material--and one that challenges the fundamental laws of physics."
If this is so, this could be one of the most important discoveries in the history of science, with vast implications as we come to understand it and physics better. Its potential importance cannot be overstated. I wonder if a company is being formed to develop it and manufacture it ... a company one could invest in. "

|"This is a great achievement but it's not "truly two-dimensional" any more than "Flatland" was about two-dimensional creatures."
