Chemistry humor

Derek Lowe’s web column In the pipeline has a section titled Things I won’t work with with pithy observations like this one:

If you’d like to make your mark, this seems to be a relatively unexplored field. The problem is, the mark you’re most likely to make is in the nature of a nasty stain on the far wall.

There is some funny stuff, even if your chemistry education (like mine) stopped with making nylon, slime, distilling alcohol and scorching lab benches with poorly thought out (or supervised, or contained…) uses of oxidizing reagents. The visitor comments are also good reading as is another of Lowe’s sections Things I’m glad I don’t do.
