Just to wrap up our Chemical of the Day miniseries I have brought out a special treat. Everybody get your groove on with Chemical Party! Badda da dum da, baddad da dum da. I would hate to be a noble gas at this party. Talk about wallflower!
Jesus, I know you are asking when this will stop. I promise this is it. I now it’s gone on way too long but who doesn’t want to hear about arsenic? These guys are cracking me up with this one. You just have to watch it. Arsenic is apparently the soap opera of elements. So dramatic and exciting. Really, I love these guys. And, check out the other elements in this feature, please.
No, boron does not stand for boring. This is the first video in our series with a female chemist. Sorry guys, she’s in love with boron, not looking for a boyfriend. It does start out with fire as well, so that is a plus. The crazy haired guy has a periodic table tie, too. I am totally digging it. And the way she says ‘spatula’. It’s so science sexy.
Blah blah blah, you know the deal. And no groaning, you might learn something from watching these. You didn’t have to watch all of them. I did. Really, I know how hard it can be to make these interesting, mostly because most of them are incredibly dry. This one at least has some cool fireworks in it.
More from the element of the day series, Lanthanum. Really the whole reason to watch this one is to listen to the mnemonic, quite amusing according to him. “Language centers praise notes small promise of small European garden tubs dinosaurs hobble erotically thrumming yellow lutes.” What the hell? Maybe you should just memorize all of the elements, it sounds easier than trying to remember this little nursery rhyme. Anyway, watch and enjoy.
