It was an assassination attempt, which I don't agree with, but...seriously....it makes for a GREAT movie! There's a poem that has accompanied these celebrations that goes a little something like:
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd (or by God's mercy*)
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
And what should we do with him? Burn him!
Do YOU celebrate Guy Fawkes' Night? How do you do it?
making Harry Potter's invisibility cloak a reality. Through the use of something called 'metamaterials,' researchers have created 'Metaflex,' a material that bends lights around an object and could potentially be used in clothing. Right now the metamaterials can be used on a flat surface to make items invisible. The researchers biggest hurdle right now? Visible light. You know...like...the light humans can see. They've mastered light outside the visible spectrum, but can't quite get with the visible.
But, really, if you had access to an invisibility cloak...would you use it? (And please...keep the "Heck yeahz! I'd be all up in the girlz's locker ro0mz!!!" comments to a minimum.)
Love and Lyte,
