    Yesterday, I was sent this nerdy ad... Enjoy it!



    I love the metallic potassium reaction with water icon_rolleyes.gif

    My freshman chemistry prof set up something similar, many years ago. His point was that if we could meet and remember everyone in the class, we should certainly be able to memorize the periodic table by the end of the quarter. Unfortunately, over the last three decades, I've pretty much forgotten most, except the elements that I use regularly. Shame... I feel so guilty for not remembering the molecular weight of Ruthenium.

    This ad should be shown in every introductory chemistry class. Period. It clears up soooooo many things!

    I'd like a whole series of these.

    I guess AU is always sitting in the corner alone?

    As someone who regularly ends up explaining complex chemistry to non-chemistry people, I found this hilarious. Awesome.

    (no really, I do, my last project was explaining why yellow fiber dye falls out of solution when cool, but green and blue don't, why yes, I'm a nerd.)

    This pretty cool. Seeing that I only have to take General Chemistry I before I get my AA degree, this video kinda makes it look less painful. icon_biggrin.gif
