Sarah McLachlan – Dirty Little Secret


Sarah McLachlan – Dirty Little Secret

If I had the chance, love
I would not hesitate
To tell you all the things I never said before
Don’t tell me it’s too late

Cause I’ve relied on my illusions
To keep me warm at night
But I denied in my capacity to love
I am willing, to give up this fight

I’ve been up all night drinking
To drown my sorrow down
Nothing seems to help me since you went away
I’m so tired of this town
Where every tongue is wagging
When every back is turned 
Their telling secrets that should never be revealed
There’s nothing to be gained from this
But disaster..
Here’s a good one..
Did you hear about my friend
He’s embarrassed to be seen now
because we all know his sins

If I had the chance love
You know, I would not hesitate
To tell you all the things I never said before
Don’t tell me it’s too late

Cause I’ve relied on my illusions
To keep me warm at night
But I denied in my capacity to love
I am willing, to give up this fight
Oh, I am willing to give up this fight…

THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: HALE-BOPP COMET MAKES CLOSEST APPROACH TO EARTH (1997)


Hale-Bopp Comet Makes Closest Approach to Earth (1997)

Likely the most widely observed comet of the 20th century, Hale-Bopp—named for American astronomers Alan Hale and Thomas Bopp—was visible to the naked eye for a record 18 months, observable even from large cities with light-polluted skies. The comet’s passage excited stargazers but also incited various conspiracy theories. The notion that it was followed by an alien spacecraft inspired a mass suicide among members of the Heaven’s Gate cult. When will Hale-Bopp return to the inner solar systemMore… Discuss

NEWS: “LOVE HORMONE” COULD HELP ANOREXICS LOVE THEMSELVES


“Love Hormone” Could Help Anorexics Love Themselves

Anorexia nervosa is a devastating, potentially deadlyeating disorder characterized by an unrealistic fear of weight gain, self-starvation, and conspicuous distortion of body image. Only about half of all anorexics make a good, long-term physical and social recovery, but researchers are hoping to improve this statistic with the help of the so-called love hormoneoxytocin. Anorexic patients dosed with oxytocin in two recent studies showed a reduced fixation on images of fattening foods, fat bodies, and negative emotions, suggesting the hormone may be able to help them overcome the obsessions that feed this disorder.More… Discuss

ARTICLE: JOSEPH PRIESTLEY


Joseph Priestley

Priestley was an English theologian and scientist. He prepared for the Presbyterian ministry but gradually rejected orthodox Calvinism for Unitarianism.

As a scientist, his manipulation of gases enabled him to discover new ones, including “dephlogisticated air,” a breakthrough whose magnitude escaped him. What gas was it? More… Discuss
