So after seeing that awesome IBM atomic stop motion film, I was inspired to make this thread. I’ll start off with a science joke; What do non-ionic compounds celebrate on February 14th?
Covalentines day!
First person to say “Fucking magnets how do they work” gets beheaded

What is the approximate cost of a fixed oil platform when you forgo the installation of drilling and pumping equipment? I am considering the feasibility of founding a micronation on an oil platform style construction, and I want to figure out what the cost of the construction would be.

So two atoms are talking to each other and one of them says, “I’ve lost an electron!” The second atom asks “Are you sure?” and the first atom replies, “I’m positive.”

This is “Science” General, not “Civil Engineering and Economics” General.

Some previous ideas that you may want to revisit and reconsider can be found here.

I believe there has been a third thread with the same name and the same topic, but I don’t know where that one is.

It seems all the previous science threads have had this image as one of the first posts. This is now tradition.

…I guess I can try to bring some focus here.

First person who can correctly explain the importance of the frost line in planetary science, and tell what it means about the chemistry of life on Earth gets a free e-cookie.

Where is science without the Eugenists?!

Fallout 3 at its finest…

Dark humor about cannibal clowns and atoms… somehow put a smile on my face each time.

Well, I heard that joke long before I ever played Fallout 3. In fact, I actually used that joke as kind of a running gag in a short story I wrote for a physics class assignment back in my junior year of high school. My teacher really liked it.

OK, everyone! Stand back as I unlock the secrets of science!

This is the truth behind all of science!

Eugenists aren’t scientists so much as public servants.

We are soldiers, but instead of fighting for the meaningless borders, we fight for humanity. Our enemies are neither the Axis or the Allies, they are the bad genes.

Eugenics is pseudoscience, at best.

On a serious note, I wanted to be an engineer at first. Then I realized that I suck at math.

On the other hand, I like chemistry, and I’m looking forward to be a chemist when I get older.

Anybody else here a chemistry fan?

I’m more into Biology to be completely honest. I really like biology from an evolutionary standpoint.

Yes, Charles Darwin apparently tried to do this when he first found the Galapagos Tortoises.

I’m a chemist. Like, actually.
