Over the last few months, the use of the word "snowflake" has become rampant. Suddenly everyone is using the word and throwing it around willy-nilly. You might have been called a snowflake recently, and you might have even called someone else a snowflake. I'm going to explore what a "snowflake" is and help you decide if you identify as one or not. You might be a snowflake if:
1. You are an ice crystal
2. You are literally snow.
3. You have six arms.
4. You melt above 0°C.
5. You are held together, primarily, by electrostatic forces.
6. People say that you are unique, but you actually can be categorized in eight classifications and up to 80 variants.
7. You nucleate around a dust particle in supersaturated air, attracting supercooled cloud water droplets.
Did you make it this far? You passed all seven of the main criteria to be a snowflake? Wow. You just might actually be a snowflake. Make sure you fact check before calling anyone else a snowflake, too. Stay woke out there, snowflakes.
