I really like this song. They just released an album as well.
On some phones, simply receiving the message lets it do its harm. I personally have auto-retrieval off for now.
I like math. I haven't had many good teachers but my 7th grade teacher (or 8th, I don't remember) taught the Pythagorean theorem with m&m's. The bases were 3cm and 4cm, the hyp was 5cm. She had us draw the right triangle and then do squares on each side. Filled the 9 and 16 squares with m&m's and then put them in the 25 square. Easy, visual, and I still remember it. This is how teaching should be done.

Illusions, by Richard Bach. Short and simple, yet thought provoking and meaningful. I'ts the right balance of showing you how life isn't simple, but at the same time is very simple. It really emphasizes that you control your life. It's also centered around roaming, feeling lost, and aircraft, so it struck me when I first read it and has stayed with me.
