12 Posts of Christmas, 2018 (Day 1)

     Actual snowflakes, as opposed to the all-too-easily-triggered type, are but crystalline water, the structure of which can be determined by X-ray crystallography.  The water molecules form hexagonal structures, as seen in the rotating 3D ball and stick crystal structure seen below:

      The term “snowflake” came from these young, ultra-progressive types that are deeply hooked into social media, spouting off how unique and talented they were. They had huge egos built off of this uniqueness, and that being unique gave them greater worth. The irony was that they were often very alike one another.

      It kinda just blended with the Tumblr “triggered” stereotype… not for a lack of overlap.
