Photographic Note: I deliberately turned this rather fuzzy picture of a water droplet on its side because it reminded me of a hypodermic needle. Or, perhaps a poisoned pen. (The photo would have been a reject had it not been for the drop's unusual shape.) Once you read this article, my decision to post it here as such may seem more appropriate.
