In popular media, manufacturing often gets the short stick regarding inventions. How many stories have you seen where the genius idea becomes reality without so much as a montage? Now there’s certainly an egalitarian nature to an idea – anyone can have one after all – and some of the most engrossing stories are framed around an average person with that one-in-a-million proposal.

Most people are familiar with Benjamin Franklin’s famous kite experiment, but most may not know his early forays into electricity extended far beyond that. Franklin worked with early capacitor technology. He correctly hypothesized that electricity was not composed of two separate “electrical fluids” but a single “fluid” of a positive and a negative element.
Balance is a tricky thing. Athletes historically have been concerned with building their strength and endurance. However, balance has taken a backseat until recently, with activities like yoga becoming more popular. Balance helps prevent injury by promoting proper posture during other activities, helping strengthen lesser-utilized muscle groups, and curbing injury.
Going to the doctor can be an anxiety-inducing experience for many because it unlocks fears of the unknown. In extreme cases, this anxiety manifests as iatrophobia or fear of seeking medical care.
No matter how deeply you research and plan a backpacking trip, the truth is you never know what to expect on the trail until you get there. I experienced this first-hand when a route I had planned out over a year disappeared under my feet while leading a group of five others. Suddenly, I was scrambling over scree, and realizing the dangers, I put another person in my group in charge until we walked halfway up the slant height of a mountain to rediscover the trail.
Like many others, it’s common for me to find ants inside at some point during the year. Whether after rain or an extended dry season, a few insects tend to make their way inside to escape the elements. However, I received quite a shock late last year when I discovered an infestation in my closet in the absence of any clear sources of food.
