I ask myself that all the time. Why is Science so boring? And then I ponder the deep, philosophical question that keeps boring old scientists up nights: Is the human female drawn to science because it is boring, or does the human female’s involvement somehow make the science boring? Perhaps she is a
catalog catalyst for dullness. (See? I know Science Words.)
Egg, chicken; egg, chicken. Either way, I am here in one of the Prep rooms to see if I can’t liven things up a bit. I believe that today I shall start with all of the myriad chemicals that line the shelves and fill the cabinets.
They have such tedious names. Look at this one:
Just trying to figure out how to say it is giving me a migraine. I think an addition to the cautionary label is in order:
Aaaaugh! The name on this one is so cursedly long that they had to wrap it around the bottle!
And they still had to wrap it to a second line! Unbelievable. And with all that, you still can’t tell what the stuff is unless you’re some sort of hot-shot chemist. Surely we could make things a little simpler.
And while we’re at it, we can clear up a little more confusion on the next shelf over.
Oh, oh, oh! Look at this old jar. What on earth do they use it for, do you suppose?
Whatever. It needs a more descriptive label.
And I haven’t even started in on the organics…
