At the risk of derailing this thread, there are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary; and those who don't understand binary.

I used that one earlier today. Elvalia wasn't impressed but her mum was. Make of that what you will :confused:

While we're derailing this thread, I heard another couple of crap chemistry jokes the other day:

A man was working at an esterification plant when he fell into one of the reaction containers. He survived but he was terribly butylated. (I may have told that one on here before.)

Two chemists go to the pub to have a drinking competition. The first chemist looks at the barman and says 'A pint of H2O please." He downs it and says "Your turn" to the other one. The second chemist says "I'll have a pint of H2O too please." Needless to say the first chemist won.

For those that don't appreciate my awful humour, butylation is the introduction of a butyl group and rhymes with mutilation and H2O too is pronounced the same as H2O2 which is hydrogen peroxide.
That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him? - Sir Terry Pratchett

I think that Chinese bloke has gone to complain to the United Nations by now. :oops:

Daft's constant stream of bad chemistry jokes consistently renews my interest in chemistry.

Hopefully studying chemistry won't suck too hard.

Wanna go for a record? I'll start a new post in current events with a BBC story about Swine Flu or the economy or something, and you reply with a chemistry joke, or a recipe for scones.

Nah, no-one would fall for that. Make a post about the British national debt and I reckon I can drag it into gun ownership and socialised healthcare pretty quickly :evilgrin:

Are you actually going to study chemistry? Awesome :scientist: I can honestly say as long as you have access to a bottle of ether you won' regret your choice :wink:

I'm going to try and apply to Chemical engineering... don't know if that's a good choice or not yet. But, so far I've like chemistry the best (and really, I like to make stuff 'splode) out of all my science courses.

Of course, I still get the urge to drop everything and just go into art, but I don't think I would enjoy art as much as a job rather than a hobby.

As for thread derailing...
If people keep getting braces to correct crooked teeth, no one will ever know who has or hasn't had braces. As a result, are the future children doomed to a future of horribly crooked teeth?
I mean.. if it was inherited from the parents, and both the parents had braces, would the resulting child's teeth be worse?

Chem Eng is the industrial side of the subject, it's mainly concerned with reaction rates, mixing, construction of reaction vessels etc. You'll need to be good with maths and have a pretty good grasp of physics, specifically thermodynamics and entropy.

And I think all chemists started getting interested with things that burn or explode :scientist:

You're getting way ahead of yourself there. The last time I checked (possibly 1974, but who cares, we're not in serious here) the most widespread disease in humans was dental caries: tooth decay. It is not congenital, but the most likely infection path is transmission of the microorganism through parent/child kissing.

We have created a huge multi-million dollar industry to prevent the damage caused by tooth decay, which involves us paying rich people with power tools to hurt us, when the 'natural' outcome would be that people with poor teeth didn't procreate, and good teeth would be 'selected for' (or whatever you want to call it, I'm not an evolutionary scientist).

So not only are future generations doomed to crooked teeth, they're going to be rotten too.

You want to put fluoride in the water! You're filling people full of corrosive chemicals and trying to control the population by influencing their minds! You're part of the Evil Empire!

How's that for thread derailing? We've gone from jokes to career advice to dental care to conspiracy theories.
