Eh, I'd put it in whimsy, but the password has changed on me again. Oh well, enjoy.

That was terrible *secretly keeps*....



“If Edison had a needle to find in a haystack, he would proceed at once with the diligence of the bee to examine straw after straw until he found the object of his search.
I was a sorry witness of such doings, knowing that a little theory and calculation would have saved him ninety per cent of his labor.”
-Tesla

More a feat of enunciation than of chemistry - has anyone tried singing it (or is that just me...), it's hard even at half the pace!

In the early 1980's, in my freshman college chemistry lecture class, the professor brought someone (from the music department I believe) on stage and they did that very same song. At the end, he jokingly said "10 points for anyone who can do the same". Several students ended up taking him up on it before the end of the quarter. Some did a very good job (one guy even arranged to have a piano brought in and someone to play it while he sang), others barely got through it. I believe the professor did make good and give each of them an extra 10 points on the test of their choice.

That professor was very weird. One day he poured liquid nitrogen over his head. We had plenty of demos, which I often volunteered to be the the assistant for. The scariest for me was when he had some liquid that was burning with a blue flame (I believe it was ether but don't remember for certain) and to put it out he asked me to reach in my ear and get a piece of earwax, then touch my finger to the burning liquid. Apparently the ear wax coats the surface of the liquid and prevents it from burning. I refused. At that point he said "Well, I'm sure not going to reach into your ear, and I cleaned out my own ears when I shaved this morning". But he ended up doing it himself (apparently he still had some wax left in his ears), and the flame did in fact go out.
