    Okay thanks I realised that. I wasn't interpreting the sheet right, its actually a carbon-carbon double bond.

    There is no such thing as a carbon-hydrogen double bond :lolwut:

    Hydrogen has only one electron you know. You could do whatever you want to it- it will not form any more than one bond. You have read this wrong somehow.
    well, just a slight correction there, it is indeed true that hydrogen doesn't form more than one bond, but have you seen structure of B2H6?
    check it out,

    it is merely a 3 centre 2 electron bonds.
