@Mithoron sadly I'm in high school and, so it's not a research problem rather a 'not understanding how does that happen a problem'. So I guess it's homework only.
Chalo at least I know why I haven't been able to get an answer

@Martin-マーチン Oh no. :(
I blame the mobile app - the bounty notifs show up in the inbox but you can’t actually see them...
@orthocresol yeah... now I got half of it, although it would have been better going to marko...
don't worry about it, I'll give out another one
but yeah, the app is dumb
the important stuff doesn't go there...
8:35 AM
Okay, thanks. I suspected that the ghost notif was the bounty, but because opening it on the app marks it as read/seen, I always forgot to follow up when going back to the computer... :/
you're not the only one...
that's why i only start bounties so they end around tuesday...
the probability that i'm not using the computer shrinks significantly

Hmm, good idea.

This is a result of quantum mechanics, I don’t think there is a simpler answer. I could type it up later if nobody else does. — orthocresol ♦ 2 hours ago
I'm starting to regret this statement. The proof is about the length of one book chapter.

@Martin-マーチン Anorganisches Grundpraktikum?
Q: What is the long name for titin?

user57957Please answer in lowercase, for example "titin" instead of "Titin". Also no punctuation or writing in complete sentences (i.e. don't add "The answer is"). Thanks!

@Loong I guess it's this "longest word" dumbness
Q: Bromonium ion or Mesomeric effect ( intermediate during addition to alkenes)

gowreesh magoIt's mentioned in Peter Sykes , A Guidebook To Mechanism In Organic Chemistry , 6th edition, 13th impression by Pearson, Pg. No. 185 , that on addition of $\ce{HBr}$ to bromoethene the only product obtained is 1,1-dibromoethane. It's due to the positve mesomeric effect of bromine to stabilize the...

@Loong truth
So the PowerPoint era is history?
No, I think people have finally gotten better at it
I remember when my HS physics teacher brought out his yellow on purple background slides
And the picture would probably look like this:
@Zhe My advisor had the same yellow on blue, with Comic Sans

My advisor made us do chalk talks for group meeting
No slides
