2 years of Lutheran school, 4 years of Jesuit school....
This has nothing to do with the whole religion thing that you're talking about, but I deciding what college to go to in the fall, and one of the picks is a school founded by the Jesuits (Canisius). I was wondering if you'd mind sharing any thoughts/opinions etc., on the school that you went to. I'm not particularly religious, but I am familiar with the very high opinion many people have of Jesuit schools. My mother (a teacher) does think that I'd do well in such a setting.

Your thoughts?

Roland Piquepaille writes "French researchers have found that Egyptians, Greek and Romans were using nanotechnology to dye their hair several thousands years ago. Nanowerk Spotlight reports they were using lead compounds which generated lead sulfide (PbS) nanocrystals with a diameter of only 5 nanometers. At a moment where many people wonder if the use of nanoparticles is safe, it's good to know that nanotechnology has been widely used for a very long time."
