COMPLETELY GEEKY

Just watched Season 2 of “Breaking Bad.” What a great series. And I love that chemistry plays such an important part. So far, I’m really impressed with the chem geek level. My favorite bit was a tad more subtle than Mr. White blowing up a drug kingpin’s house with mercury fulminate. In the last episode of season 2, when a female character ODs, her father enters her apartment to choose a dress for her to be buried in. There are examples of her drawings all over her bedroom. And right on top is a drawing of a snake swallowing its tail. That imagery, of course, is one of the most famous in chemistry. Kekule supposedly dreamed it when he figured out the ring structure of benzene.

That’s what the banner read on last night’s “Glee.” They can sing, but they cannot spell.

This blog was born. That 1st post was just as inane as most of the rest of them.
