The orbits of the moons and planets form a fractal 4-dimensional helix in spacetime.

This, this is what is most beautiful to me. The universe is ever changing, ever growing. This path you see here is far too simple, it doesn’t account for how we tumble and ricochet about the stars. Stars are pulled by other stars, galaxies are pulled by other galaxies, they do not sit still, they are painting an indescribable path of motion across existence. We could never fully comprehend it unless we could be on the outside, and then where would we be? Where is our macrocosmos? Is it just a cell to an impossibly greater body? Where was I ten seconds ago? I have absolutely no idea and I am in awe.

CDC RELEASES ECIG STUDY

Via: http://www.vaporshark.com/blog

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a study to assess the use and awareness of electronic cigarettes in current, former, and non-smokers. U.S. adults over the age of eighteen were surveyed in 2010 by mail and the web. In 2011, the survey was web-based only.

According to the 2010 mail survey, the overall awareness of electronic cigarettes was 38.5% and 40.9% on the web. The study conducted in 2011 was web-based only and showed a 57.9 percentage of awareness.

When the initial survey was conducted in 2010, 2.1% of all respondents in the mail survey and 3.3% of the web study had used electronic cigarettes. The 2011 web survey reported 6.2% ever use of e-cigs among all participants.

The use of e-cigs in smokers increased from 9.8% in 2010 to 21.2% in 2011. Ever use of electronic cigarettes in former smokers increased from 2.5% to 7.4%, and among non-smokers the percentage of participants who had ever tried e-cigs remained steady at 1.3%.

Awareness and use has increased from 2010-2011. Most electronic cigarette users are drawn to these products because of a desire to quit or cut back on tobacco cigarettes. Despite fears of growing awareness and publicity, there is no increase in the number of nonsmokers using electronic cigarettes.
