"When the scientists raised the magnetic field strength still further, the condensate suddenly reverted back to attraction, imploded and shrank beyond detection, and then exploded, blowing off about two-thirds of its 10,000 or so atoms. About half of the atoms in the condensate seemed to have disappeared from the experiment altogether, not being seen either in the cold remnant or the expanding gas cloud. Carl Wieman explained that under current atomic theory this characteristic of Bose–Einstein condensate could not be explained because the energy state of an atom near absolute zero should not be enough to cause an implosion; however, subsequent mean-field theories have been proposed to explain it."

But for now you get the lyrics to "My Sex" by Elastica. Sometimes a song clicks long after you first hear it...

What I want
Mornings to the winter and afternoons to the summer
What I want
Is for you to be waiting round the other side of every door
What I want
To walk through the wardrobe of other bodies we have known
What I want
Is fifteen minutes of you
What I want
A lover who loves me when others have loved me not
What I want
Is a big love, two spoons in a drawer, the master plan
What I want
A lover who can love me slowly
What I want
To make your heart beat faster
What I want
Is a room with a three-bar fire, like the one you had before, When you were poor and i just liked you more
What I want
To be in the park in the morning, the Long shadows on the grass and the swans still asleep
What I want
Is to love you everywhere and everyhow
What I want
To kiss you until our lips are numb
What I want
Kiss you 'til everywhere hurts
What I want
Is to hear the rain against the window again

"...because there's a conflict in every human heart between the rational and the irrational, between good and evil. The good does not always triumph. Sometimes the dark side overcomes what Lincoln called the better angels of our nature. Every man has got a breaking point."
