I found this little baby house centipede in my basement on the wall. House centipedes live in damp areas. He was also very fast, and I didn't have the heart to kill it.

Today, I read an article on [CNN titled Help Wanted: College Degree not Needed.](money.cnn.com/2014/09/04/news/economy/college-grads-under...) It carelessly justifies how young people no longer need educations because of the availability of jobs.

It is our responsibility to be informed. It is careless to think otherwise.

I became a scientist because I believe knowledge is the principal mechanism for success and happiness. Sometimes too much knowledge can cripple the way a person views another, but this off topic. Instead... I want to share what knowledge can do for the way an individual sees the world we live in.

Macroscopic Solutions forced me to image a variety of objects that I found both interesting and disgusting. I unexpectedly discovered that the objects I feared most, for whatever reason, (i.e. insects, spiders, worms, etc.) are more beautiful than ever. Without a sense of understanding, I would continue to be afraid of what I generally consider creepy.

Yesterday I found a house centipede... I was terrified and today I am enlightened. After a close examination, the beauty and intricacy of this creature is clear. It should be appreciated and admired by every man and woman of every race and faith. The Biodiversity of this world must be protected and appreciated forever. Without knowledge and education, the human race will fail.

They are elongated metameric creatures with one pair of legs per body segment. Despite the name, centipedes can have a varying number of legs from under 20 to over 300. Centipedes have an odd number of pairs of legs, e.g. 15 or 17 pairs of legs (30 or 34 legs). A key trait uniting this...
