"maybe some other time"
It’s fifty below,
and I can do without
or a toque
but I can’t do without
on midway atoll, a remote cluster of islands more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent, the detritus of our mass consumption surfaces in an astonishing place: inside the stomachs of thousands of dead baby albatrosses. the nesting chicks are fed lethal quantities of plastic by their parents, who mistake the floating trash for food as they forage over the vast polluted pacific ocean.
"for me, kneeling over their carcasses is like looking into a macabre mirror. …like the albatross, we [the consumers and polluters of this world] find ourselves lacking the ability to discern anymore what is nourishing from what is toxic to our lives and souls." - chris jordan

Surgeons have been using electrosurgical devices for years. An electrosurgical knife uses high frequency electrical current to cauterize wounds and prevent blood loss during surgery. One disadvantage is the smoke caused by burning living tissue, but scientists discovered that different tissues produce different byproducts in the smoke as they are burned. By using a technique called Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry to analyze the components in the smoke as the tissue is being burned during surgery, scientists can perform “near–real-time characterization of human tissue in-vivo.” In a study published in Science Magazine, this technology, called the intelligent knife (iKnife), was able to accurately identify healthy tissue from different forms of tumorigenic tissue.
