Aaaauuuugh! Why Is Science So Boring?

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.


You’re welcome.

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…
