It's weird isn't it? You're just meandering gently down your average alley (Free School Lane) when you glance up and catch sight of something that makes you realise that everything you're walking on, beside, around and under, are wearing and carrying and are using, right up to the camera you're taking this (poor) photograph with, is based on, explained by and/or created with something discovered a mere stoned-student's throw from where you stand. Not bad JJ Thomson; when I think of what I achieved for mankind today -- don't order the plaque just yet...
