May 2

Happiest 3 days of my life. Seriously.

I have this thing with the periodic table of elements. (I was going to link that to info on the periodic table, but honestly, if you do not know what it is by now, God help you.)

All my life I had been waiting - WAITING - for my school to cut the crap about volcanoes and sound waves so I could get my hands on some real science, the kind I loved so dearly.

And then FINALLY in grade 9, our class started a lesson on the table. My peers were as apathetic as always, but I was all:

But my celebration was short lived, as the lesson was quite abrupt. And then I was back to being the bitter misanthropic person everyone loves me for!


May 7

I have these experiences quite frequently.

I was in the library writing lab reports for a group project (which is a lot more work than I anticipated, thanks a lot, GROUP MEMBERS) and this girl I know walks up to say hey. She asked me what I was working on, and I told her to leave me alone because this was the area farthest away from everyone else in the library and I intended to keep it that way that I was writing about potential validity issues of experiments. She stuck her face in front of the screen and started reading it.

I was writing about how proteins affect the levels of urea found in urine.

She walked away.

Further illustrating my philosophy of "If you can’t stand the science, get out of the lab.image


Oh, the humanity!

Jesus Christ, gummy bears and potassium chlorate do not go well together!

But I will keep this reaction in mind next time someone wrongs me. They will wake up to find this happening on their doorstep. NO ONE DOUBLE-CROSSES BRAIN_RAIN.

“(a) Digital camera snapshot of a heated 15 mm steel sphere held stationary in fluorinated liquid with sphere temperature above the Leidenfrost temperature. A thin vapor layer streaming around the sphere can be observed by the ripples moving along the sphere surface. (b) Snapshot at the instant when the sphere has cooled to the Leidenfrost temperature that is marked by an explosive release of bubbles.”
