In an effort to distract myself from the pain, I began to mentally go through my favorite scenes from Harry potter, but even the thought of my favorite book couldn’t keep my mind off my discomfort for long. Huffing, I lugged the water-filler bucket uphill, careful not to spill too much of its precious contents. That would mean another trek downhill and I’ve had enough of that for one day.

    I believe that errors in scientific experiments cannot be failure. Some errors in the tests are accidental and sometimes they are there for a purpose. Not all the time, of course, but there are plenty of examples that show that miscalculations in science are proven that create gigantic success and discovery. “We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.”…
