    1. Who cares about the "outdated" periodic table? Those newly discovered elements are completely irrelevant to working chemists. I'd be more concerned about having the latest values of the atomic weights for elements we do use in real life.

    2. It is bad form to store solutions in volumetric flasks, but the fact they they are not filled to the mark now does not prove that they weren't originally used correctly, then some of the solution was dispensed. (But of course they're actually just there to be pretty colors, which itself is mildly objectionable.)

    3. It's not chemistry, but why did she NOT comment on the phrase "ten dimensions of clean," which is obvious "science-y" marketing BS. And multiple dimensions should be orthogonal to each other, not parallel (although I know that's not what they meant by "parallel").
