Sorry, I don't drink that.



Hehe, you inspired me to draw the Pol molecule.

Pol, don't take any of this personally, you're just so fun to tease.
The n at the end of girton only seems to have one bond.

LOL, thanks guys. Appreciate the chemistry-orientated critiques.

So um, it's C6H5(GIRTON)...that's almost benzene, but with one of the hydrogens replaced with the GIRTON. I thought it would be benzegirton or something.

. The most boring subject ever. Yes, it IS worse than maths.

Oh yes, sorry, the phenyl radical is derived from benzene, I forgot...I'm only going on GCSE Chemistry and some random reading I've done in my own time...I didn't do the A-level, but I'm assured by my friends I wasn't missing out on much. :cool:

It may interest you to know I didn't get an A* in any of my sciences or maths...I'm only keen when it doesn't matter.

How do you mean? You know, all the books I read could've been lying to me, and molecules may be as nonexistent as God (no offence to anyone )...I thought most of it made sense though.

All that crap they (teach!) you about bonding and Electronic configuration at GCSE is totally destroyed within the first half-term or lower sixth form chemistry. Why cant they just be honest with us????

Hm, I vaguely remember that in a Physics A2 class, we were discussing electron configurations and shells, and everyone else who was doing Chemistry seemed to be bringing in information I'd never heard before...something about different shells having different properties (I was always told it was 2 in the first shell, and up to 8 in all the rest). I suppose it's better with maths, because they don't radically change things without warning you...of course, you may learn new, faster ways to do things as you get older, but it's not a huge shock.

New faster way to do things? To turn your brain to mush more like! I'm still recovering from the discovery of secant, cosecant and cotangent {cries in a corner}

sec(x) is the best function in the world!

Well, it sounds like it could be.

This is where Kathy accuses me of having a one-track mind.
