Jen – I realize that you wrote this in 2014 and here it is 2016 — hope you see this. I have not laughed and smiled in tooooooo long a time. Then this early AM at my crap overnight job, that I am hiding in, I read your series of ramblings, philosophical thoughts, and wonderful words –THANK YOU! I understand everything you write and think you are tenacious, and exceptional. You should be a writer because I think there may be quite a few people like me who are very similar to you. Wish I had the privilege of knowing you. Wish I had figured out how to use my unique personality and intelligence to have a decent career and life. The good news is like you, I cannot be kept down for long. In two years I hope to have found some destiny as you have (even though I do not think you have found it, you have arrived). Good job.
Of the other discovered allotropes, carbon nanofoam is a ferromagnetic allotrope discovered in 1997. It consists of a low-density cluster-assembly of carbon atoms strung together in a loose three-dimensional web, in which the atoms are bonded trigonally in six- and seven-membered rings. It is among the lightest known solids, with a density of about 2 kg/m 3 .  Similarly, glassy carbon contains a high proportion of closed porosity ,  but contrary to normal graphite, the graphitic layers are not stacked like pages in a book, but have a more random arrangement. Linear acetylenic carbon  has the chemical structure  -(C:::C) n -. Carbon in this modification is linear with sp orbital hybridization , and is a polymer with alternating single and triple bonds. This carbyne is of considerable interest to nanotechnology as its Young's modulus is forty times that of the hardest known material – diamond. 
In the UK, which is holding a snap election next month , turnout has bounced up and down since the late 1970s, peaking at % of the voting-age population in 1992 and bottoming out at % in 2001, when Tony Blair won a second term as prime minister. Since that low point, turnout has risen four elections in a row, including last year’s referendum on whether to remain in or leave the European Union. Nearly two-thirds of the voting-age population, and more than 72% of registered voters, cast ballots in the referendum, according to the UK’s Electoral Commission – the highest turnout rates since 1997 and 1992, respectively.
