Funny General Chemistry Moments #1
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
I am such a silly mood right now because I just found out I have this HUGE project assigned… ahh I forgot the intricacies of the academic world in the past year…. This post is particularly dedicated to Spiderman, who will never learn to appreciate or even simply learn chemistry. (But I will teach you how to balance an equation, insha’ Allah)
I don’t know if this will become a series, but I HAD to put this up–
My chemistry professor put some links on our chemistry webpage to some articles that explain concepts from class. I saw this photo and I broke out laughing in the middle of the computer lab:
Its like this guy. the good news is that he filled up with gas. The bad news is that the gas nozzle is still attached.
(I swear, I am waiting for some friend of mine to do this. I won’t say who. XD)
Random chemistry moment: (What makes it so funny is how my professor can say this with such a straight face)
Professor: So why is this idea a good one? (In reference to his method of calculating atomic mass)
*class is silent*
Professor: I mean, other than that it was MY idea….
(After my professor lectured non stop for an hour about AMUs, moles, atoms, random percent composition, etc.) [roughly quoted]
Me: What… just happened for the past hour?
Friend: We were learning chemistry. Weren’t you paying attention?
Me: Yeah… I took notes, I wrote what he said, but I don’t know what happened.
Friend: Are you okay?
Me: I think I am experiencing a Chemistry Coma…. or a Chemistry Hangover from too much exposure.
And random calculus moments:
Professor: A limit that approaches to two different values from each side is kind of like going out with your honey. Your honey is going to one restaurant (name) and you are going to another restaurant (name). It is inconvenient, but it happens.
Professor: When the (f(x)=x^2) graph vertex hits the x axis, it just *kisses* it.
More as the semester continues….
