Team Chemistry

A friend and I recently traded barbs back and forth comparing NFL Pro Days and chemistry lab culture.

"He wrapped up that running back like Parafilm!"

"I calculate molarity more accurately than Drew Brees throws the deep ball."

"For good protection in the pocket, make sure you're using reagent-compatible lab gloves."

"My signing bonus? A monogrammed lab coat and an Aldrich mouse pad."

"Neither my advisor or I knew the answer, so we punted."

"That safety covered him better than a full-face respirator!"

(I could go on, but I'll let you readers have a crack at it!)

    Staple plays from a chemist's playbook: the "bump trap," "column flush," and "sep funnel" plays.
