While wondering why my toast falls butter side down on the floor.....

may not qualify as one of the world's most pressing scientfic questions in the world, there are some that actually seem to rate as being really important. Here are 125 deep questions posed by the staff at Science Magazine. The answers might really make a difference if we can figure them out.

War is a terrible thing. I love peace. However there are times when a person, a family, a country, a people must take a stand to defend those things they hold dear and sacred and the path of war must be walked. Sometimes the cost is great and the impact echos on forever. In time, enemies may become friends and allies. I think that by remembering the past we honor the spirits of all who fought and died (civilians and soliders), as well as those who are now able to live--a little better and hopefully wiser--because of their sacrifices. Come spend some time with their ghosts....

WWII battlefield remains in Kiev at The Serpent's Wall.
Price of technology gone wrong in Chernobyl.(not war-related, but ghosts are here as well)
Hayao Miyazaki's film Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka). (picture above)

See you in the skies.
