Margaret Mead - Wikiquote

Margaret Mead - Wikiquote: "If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place."

Dibs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dibs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Calling "dibs" is an informal convention where one declares a first claim to something to which no individual otherwise has any clearly recognized right. Such a declaration is often recognized in certain cultures, or sub-cultures, as a means to avoid arguments over relatively trivial issues"

Perigee "Super Moon" On May 5-6 - NASA Science

Perigee "Super Moon" On May 5-6 - NASA Science: "May 2, 2012:  The full Moon has a reputation for trouble.

It raises high tides, it makes dogs howl, it wakes you up in the middle of the night with beams of moonlight stealing through the drapes.

If a moonbeam wakes you up on the night of May 5th, 2012, you might want to get out of bed and take a look1.  This May’s full Moon is a "super Moon,” as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons of 2012."
