22B422 Pt. 7: Ernesto’s Comps

Today, at approximately 8:00 p.m. in the Weitz Cinema, Ernesto Llano gave his comps talk with 6 other chemistry majors.

And an hour later.. da whole famdamily! 

Here’s the list of Chemistry-related sleazy pick-up lines that I thought of during the presentation:

– “Are you coming to my comps talk? It’ll be a chemisTREAT.”

– “Girl look at that prime ase” (?)

– “I’ll let you trigger my loop release.”

– “Did someone break your heart? I can tape together your okizaki fragments.”

None of these are funny. Well, I think the first one is okay, but you know. I’m sorry this is such a lame list I’M SORRY OKAY. To my credit, I was prompted by the comps title, which was something like “DNA, I hear you’re single.. molecule replication” (more or less).

I’ve spent most of today stopping myself from logging on Facebook because I didn’t want to see my newly enforced TIMELINE and it’s just been a downer overall. You’re a jerk, Facebook.

In other distressing news, today we listened to “Fast Car” during my Ed Studies class and I had to grip my seat with both hands to stop myself from bawling up a storm. Maybe it’s the song’s deceptive grooviness, or maybe it’s the fact that I can’t understand half of what Tracy Chapman is saying until the lyrics are handed to me in a powerpoint, but I’d never realized what a depressing song this was.
