SIDENOTE: In the eighth grade, for Mrs. Loo’s Science class, we had to pick an element from the Periodic Table and create a paper origami cube. On the cube, using markers and crayons, we were to decorate each panel to represent various qualities and properties of our chosen element. I chose Nickel, and wrote “HEAVY METAL” on each panel, with typographical variations. This was in about 1982, before “heavy metal” was a household term used to describe the music of bands like Ozzy, Maiden, Priest, and Motley Crue. Mrs. Loo didn’t notice. I think I got an A.
