(MYSTERY) – Samuel Price, Special Agent of the FBI, awakes while on his flight from Munich to New York, and something’s wrong.

All he wants is to sleep, but he won’t. Will he rise to the occasion, or will his addled mind let a killer walk free?

Expose Yourself!

The major key to discovering new interests and passions is EXPOSURE, but it’s also about testing those interests and passions to see how far down the rabbit hole you want to go. Is it a life-long passion where you want to re-invent rocketry and take the planet to Mars (Elon Musk)? Or, is it enough to know a bunch of constellations, and simply be in awe of the universe (Me)? That’s important to know—preferably before we send our students to college—and it’s also not the only difference between Elon Musk and myself!

We need to teach students how (and also allow them to) expose themselves to far more things, in far less time, and for nearly zero cost.

Can we even do this?—you ask.

Oh, yea!! I’m going to show you how.

Janelle stood with her eyes closed in the near-complete darkness. She stretched out with her senses, feeling the cool, slightly damp air of the ancient, underground room. The smell was musty; modern ventilation not able to fully get rid of that old smell.
