CHICKEN SANDWICH RECIPE

This is for the hearty souls among you.

To a hamburger bun, add one smallish boneless chicken breast, grilled. Douse liberally with B-Dubs “Blazin’” sauce. Add 1 chopped up Thai chili and 1/2 of a chopped up Trinidad Moruga chili. Eat . . . but . . . very carefully . . .

Read this and then realize that all of the folks described have probably graduated high school in the US.

Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum! It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day.

UPDATE: In honor of TLaPD, I’m wearing Bay Rum aftershave. Pirates were pretty stinky after months aboard ship.

EASTERN ANALYTICAL SYMPOSIUM — PRICE CUT

Well, sort of. We’ve never had a clear policy on whether grad students were eligible for the student rate of $25 or had to pay the full conferee rate of $195. If you are a grad student, the correct rate to register for the meeting is $25. The website will be updated to make this clear.

Hope to see lots of new analytical chemists-in-training at the meeting.

Guess who said this:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.

That was Ronald Reagan in 1980. And the sentence that preceded the quote above?

Where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost.

Happy Labor Day!
