An evening funny


Back tomorrow with more.

Stolen from synthesisman's post on the chemistry Reddit. I admit I heard this a couple of times in graduate school.

  1. I surprised you didn't comment on the Organic PhD thread.

  2. Reminds me of a certain Oxford Professor of Organic Chemistry when I was there in the early 80s. If you want a laugh, go over to youtube and watch the following "cutting edge" documentary made in 1986, which is in 3 parts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhzxlcVjJis
    In one of the sections, there's a scene with the prof grilling some hapless grad student over his lack of progress. Happy days!
    My old organic chemistry tutor is in it, too.
