Emily Dickinson - Drowning is not so pitiful

Drowning is not so pitiful
As the attempt to rise
Three times, 'tis said, a sinking man
Comes up to face the skies,
And then declines forever
To that abhorred abode,
Where hope and he part company --
For he is grasped of God.
The Maker's cordial visage,
However good to see,
Is shunned, we must admit it,
Like an adversity.

I molekylr form, N2, er nitrogen meget lite reaktiv. Derfor er dinitrogen en god, og for oss ndvendig, "fortynner" av oksygenet i atmosfren. På samme måte som fisk svmmer omkring i et hav av vann der det finnes tilstrekkelig opplst oksygen til at livet kan opprettholdes, beveger vi oss omkring i et "hav" av dinitrogen der det også finnes nok oksygen til at vi kan leve og trives. For hvert aggressive oksygenmolekyl vi trekker inn i lungene er det heldigvis også nesten fire inerte nitrogenmolekyler. I en ren oksygenatmosfre ville vi brent opp!

Vårt första uppdrag var att åka ut till Bottnaryd där det var en kille som inte hade någon värme i sitt hus. Väl på plats tog det inte lång tid innan min mentor Joakim hade bytt säkerhetsventil och fått vattnet till att flöda ut i radiatorerna i huset. Värmen började sakteligen komma tillbaka och herrn i huset var mer en nöjd måste jag säga. Vi hade varit på plats snabbt, vilket var ett tydligt plus i kanten, och sen att värmen var tillbaka gjorde honom också väldigt glad.
