Till he my woful self destroy;
And most of all myself I am,
When most I do myself disclaim.

Of disappointment's fatal dart, —
These, and these only, are the themes
That suit a woe-worn broken heart.

Fun, foam and freedom. The sea laves
The Shaven sand. And the light sways forward
On self-destroying waves.

In news:

Two Avengers survey a partially destroyed New York, the work of a self-powered energy vortex thingy.
The guided-missile destroyers USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) and USS Chafee (DDG 90) steam in the Pacific Ocean with the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) during exercises with several Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force ships.
Fire Destroys Self- Storage Warehouse in Garland, Texas.
A two-alarm blaze ripped through a self- storage warehouse in Garland, Texas, early Tuesday morning, destroying Reynold Warehouses and everything stored in it.
When the Spruance-class destroyer USS Paul F Foster (DD 964) is decommissioned next March, it will find new life as the next Self Defense Test Ship (SDTS) at Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme.
Does This Picture Destroy Your Self-Esteem.
They must put aside all motives of self-serving and bias and began the process of solving the problems that are destroying this country.

In science:

Although asymptotic flatness and self-reproduction may be destroyed by induced masses, the observable window at significantly smaller τ may still allow inflations with enough e-foldings.
Roulette Inflation with K\"ahler Moduli and their Axions
Further, it is shown that this inhomogeneity disappear in La0.9 Sr0.1MnO3.08 where, the orbital domain state is destroyed by self doping resulting in reduction of Mn3+ and hence eg -electrons.
Changeover from Glassy ferromagnetism of the orbital domain state to long range ferromagnetic ordering in La{_{0.9}}Sr_{0.1}MnO{_3}
The orbital-resolved self-energies (inset in Fig. 1) clearly reveal this aspect: large damping at EF destroys the FL quasiparticle, giving an incoherent, pseudogapped, bad metallic state.
Normal State Correlated Electronic Structure of Iron Pnictides
Therein, it is shown how multiple individuals acting independently in their own self-interest can ultimately destroy a shared limited resource even when it is clearly not in anyone’s long term interest.
On the Benefits of Bandwidth Limiting in Decentralized Vector Multiple Access Channels
To use quasirandom coverings on curved manifolds, their density can Unfortunately, such a process tends to destroy the self-avoidance of quasirandom sequences, resulting in effective thicknesses close to the random-covering values (see right panel of Fig. 7).
Cover art: issues in the metric-guided and metric-less placement of random and stochastic template banks
TGEMs also have several attractive features compared to ordinary GEMs: a) robustness (capability to withstand sparks without being destroyed) and b) a self- supporting mechanical structure making their use convenient in large detectors.
First observation of Cherenkov rings with a large area CsI-TGEM-based RICH prototype
Asymmetric dark matter par ticles captured inside neutron stars and white dwarfs can form a self-gravitating DM cloud which can eventually collapse to a black hole and destroy the star.
Proceedings of the first workshop on Flavor Symmetries and consequences in Accelerators and Cosmology (FLASY2011)
Second, they can be destroyed by normal dynamical processes or abnormal ones such as self-interacting dark matter (Spergel & Steinhardt 2000; Yoshida et al. 2000; Col ín et al. 2002; D’Onghia & Burkert 2002).
CDM Substructure in Gravitational Lenses: Tests and Results
Self-consistent simulations of spiral galaxies with gas have shown that only the infall of 1-2% of mass in gas is sufficient to destroy the stellar bar or to transform it into a lens (Friedli 1994, Berentzen et al 1998, Bournaud & Combes 2002, 2005).
Secular Evolution of Galaxies
Less ambiguous evidence for self-enrichment in a star would be the detection of 6Li in its atmosphere. A metal-rich dwarf later than mid-F destroys all its primordial 6Li by the time it reaches the main sequence while it retains much of its 7Li (Montalb´an & Rebolo 2002).
The Chemical Compositions of Stars with Planets: A Review
Given that its energy is unbounded from below, the ghost will continually dump its energy into the other fields, rapidly destroying the self-accelerating solution.
A short review of "DGP Specteroscopy"
The issue of chaos in multiparticle production processes relies on the acceptance of a sensible measure of chaos, when the di(cid:14)culty of tracking the time evolution of a self-interacting quantum system destroys the utility of the Lyapunov exponent that has been found so useful in classical nonlinear dynamics.
Summary of the Nijmegen Workshop on Multiparticle Production
Similarly MD05 found that an IRRS bar is unable to destroy a cusp in a Hubble time. S03 also presented self-consistent simulations in which a disk of particles was grown inside a halo.
