It's ironic how sometimes these seemingly simple questions can generate so much thought and discussion. I enjoyed them too.

@ron Adamantane's structure is so 3D it blows my head.
But of polycyclic organomolecule thingies I love tertracycline the most.
Long story, really.
But you should know that my mom and dad are both pharmacists, and I've been literally living in a pharmacy since I was six.
It's fun in itself.
 
8:37 AM
Hullo @Wildcat!
I was just gonna play games.
 
Hi @M.A.Ramezani!
 
How are you this fine day?
 
Didn't sleep well this night... -_-
You?
 
The same goes here. I slept at 2:39 a.m.
 
:D
 
8:42 AM
And woke up at 6:00 a.m.

12:59 PM
@Martin-マーチン Where are you? Not seen you around nowadays.
 
1:19 PM
@user223679 He's cooking sausages.
 
1:38 PM
I am new here. How do these chatrooms work? What do people usually talk about?
 
Hullo @getafix!
Welcome to the chatroom!
@getafix You'll grasp the workings of chat in no time.
And people talk about everything in chats.
Everything that's of course, not offensive.
@getafix regarding how chat works, you can ask me all you want, but first, tell me/us a bit about yourself.
 
1:56 PM
@M.A.Ramezani So... many... pings!
 
@LordStryker Haha! Those were but a little portion of my love of saying your name a lot.
 
You unpinned my pin :(
You were supposed to ignore it!
 
@LordStryker Just so you know, the fact that you said ignore it made me look at it like a hungry cat 100 million times a day.
@LordStryker Wait...You didn't see my message?
 
@M.A.Ramezani Not much too tell. I am a first year chemical engineering undergrad. Love what i do for the most part ( everything except the 8am-6pm class shcedule x5 days a week)
 
Oh no I totally did.
 
2:00 PM
@getafix That's half of the week!
 
@M.A.Ramezani Yes. it is
 
@getafix So you're like, 19?
 
@M.A.Ramezani I'm like 19
 
Yeah like 19.
 
Like 19 is the best time for a student.
BTW where are you from @getafix?
 
2:04 PM
Yeah I guess, being 19 helps.. You can live on one meal a day and less than five hours of sleep.

I am Indian. But I am pursuing my degree in Japan, at nagoya university ( i don't know if you are familiar with it)
 
@getafix You should find @Martin-マーチン and say hi for us :)
 
@Martin someone else's in Japan!
@LordStryker Do you know where he is?
 
@M.A.Ramezani Certainly. But I'll respect his anonymity and let him tell us if he so chooses.
 
Pfft. I know where he is. He's on Earth.
 
@LordStryker I shall put that on my to-do list. I did look at his profile when I first joined this site (the katakana in his screen name piqued my interest)..getting to him would be a bit of a hike though lol (not exactly in close proximity)
 
2:08 PM
@getafix If you go meet him, you should wear a T-shirt that says "I <3 B3LYP"
He would really love you after that.
 
@LordStryker I shall keep that in mind.
 
He loves everybody at chem.SE.
Almost everybody.
I wanna go find something to answer.
 
That's nice of him. haha This seems like a cool place, I do like it here..(haven't been here long though)
 
Either on chem.SE, or math.SE, or ELL, or even meta.SE.
But meh.
Laziness is a bliss.
@getafix It's 5 degrees Celsius in chat, so I'd call it cool.
 
B-) Put em on boys.
The sun never sets on cool. ;)
 
2:15 PM
BTW @getafix chem.SE is notorious in chem.SE for being nice to new users.
I haven't been on my full-time job of welcoming new users though.
And I just missed the graduation.
So my welcome comments are kinda hibernating at the moment.

Q: Why do some solvents bubble more than others when boiling?

JanThis question about boiling milk reminded me of my everyday lab work at the rotavap: Some solvents and solutes are feared for the intense bubbling they create while the solution is boiling — be it at ambient pressure like the milk or at reduced pressure in the rotavap. For most of the infamous so...

Cool question!
The answer could use some elaboration.
 
@M.A.Ramezani User 7448 seems as though you missed a lot :P
 
Well the early days...
When chem.SE was rolling in the fingers of a Stryker Lord...
 
Nothing really happened in the early days.
 
When the sun rose from the west...
When there were no me...
No Ron...
 
The sun didn't rise until you came along
 
2:18 PM
No Martin...
Sheds tears This is so dramatic. The poem continues:
No Santiago...
 
No Dissenter...
 
Only Dissenter...
Only Klaus...
Only Lord...
 
Jonsca and Manish and F'x
 
Well, that's three only's.
The mods ruled the land...
F'x asked questions...
Everyone thought of vote early vote often
Woo, I've missed some drama.

Q: Vote Vote Vote Vote Vote Vote Vote

LordStrykerI don't have to link to any particular posting. Just check the main page. Posts are not receiving enough votes. Responses are not receiving enough votes. We need to vote. Even if you aren't contributing relevant and useful information to the community, a vote goes a long way in encouraging ...

 
2:22 PM
Ah that was Vote early vote often?
That isn't.
@Lord it's a trending in new betas that every beta gets to copy vote early vote often from meta.TeX.SE.
BTW @Lord I'm gonna proceed my process of learning TeX/LaTeX after the exam season's over.
 
@M.A.Ramezani Do it! TeX is awesome.
And TeX:SE is also really good.
TeX community is best community.
I love those guys over there.
 
@LordStryker Well I've already ignited last month.
 
You will never want to go back. TeX and vim is heaven.
 
Now I at least know what TeX is, what LaTeX, and what XeTeX is.
My biggest TeX challenge: How to write Persian in TeX.
Let me remember...I think it was Martin who introduced me to TeXmaker.
I'll use Vim when I grow up.
 
2:51 PM
Hey look who the cat dragged in.
How goes it @Martin-マーチン ?
 
@MARTIN!
 
It's okay... given the average monday night
 
Jumps up, hits the ceiling
 
it's almost 12pm and i am still at the office...
I just got a couple of pings, and thought i should check in ;)
Btw. It's not a terribly well guarded secret where I live now ;)
 
Well @santiago's been rare to find in chat too.
I think he's busy corroding something.
 
2:55 PM
Hahaha...
 
How have you been @Martin?
Were you busy at work?
 
@getafix Before you decide to wear a t-shirt with what Stryker sama suggested, you should read this thread very closely :D
I am always busy
haha...
had some stuff to do and not a lot to procrastinate
i noticed, i have ten tabs open, with questions i want to answer, but i don't get the chance to do so...
have been reading too much literature already...
but work is fine i guess...
 
Heh. No procrastinations indeed.
@Martin-マーチン Literature? O.o
 
@Martin-マーチン The former does need a good answer, but since I'm a cyclohexane, I have no idea what Y-aromaticity is.
 
3:03 PM
this is so much more complicated than necessary...
 
BTW @Martin @Lord yesterday I've been dealing with ADG.
 
@M.A.Ramezani I have no clue what you mean :P
 
and the usage of the term aromaticity confuses more than it does good
 
@LordStryker Me neither.
 
@M.A.Ramezani what are you talking about
 
3:04 PM
What do you mean?
@Martin-マーチン Good ol' chemistry names.
@Martin-マーチン What?
 
Do we need to pin the nice Chatroom guidelines again? Has everybody weighed in yet?
 
@Martin Well, how could we implement it?
 
Are we still talking about adg?
 
@Martin-マーチン We could be if you want. :}
 
What were you talking about? y-aromaticity
?
 
3:09 PM
Well, it was first the literature you said you were reading.
Then it was Y-aromaticity...
Then ADG...
Then again Y-aromaticity...
Hullo @Wildcat!
Then chatroom guidelines...
 
Then we're talking about what we're talking about.
 
o/ @Wildcat
meow ;)
 
Hi everyone!
@Martin-マーチン, =^.^=
 
So... the y aromaticity has to wait...
 
3:11 PM
@Wildcat you were American right?
 
i need to retire to my quarters now
 
@M.A.Ramezani, nope.
 
Oh, can I ask where?
 
@M.A.Ramezani, sure. Keywords are: Winter, Vodka and Bears. :D
 
So you're Winkabearian?
 
3:16 PM
:D
 
Let me think. Antarctica?
 
@Wildcat Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself? You're so shady with your sneaky privacy.
 
@M.A.Ramezani, that is a continent, not a country. ;-)
 
I know the answer! I know the answer!
 
@LordStryker, heh. I usually prefer to be anonymous at the Internets.

Q: What is the teaching-lab tag for?

bonSimple question. What is the teaching-lab tag for? Should it be applied to questions regarding general lab procedure or does it (as the name suggests) have something to do with teaching? Most of the questions which have the tag are just about general procedure but this doesn't seem to fit with th...

 
Wha?
 
@Wildcat Scandalous.
 
@LordStryker, why? :O
 
What the heck is that tag supposed to do?
 
3:22 PM
What the heck is that tag supposed to do? [2]
 
@Wildcat That doesn't work. You just put a selfie of yourself as your avatar and you say you're anonymous? Pfft.
 
@M.A.Ramezani :DDD
 
3:40 PM
What the?
@Wildcat you simply asked for a tutorial in SO, and they closed your question?
What gives?
That's classic reference request!
 
@M.A.Ramezani, who cares? If it is not about Python or similar crap, the rules are different there. :D
Community decides. Crappy community -> crappy decisions.
 
Yeah...This is so sad.
 
It will be deleted soon, btw.
 
Why?
 
3 more votes needed
 
3:44 PM
Oh?
 
Cause community decides so.
 
(removed)
 
@M.A.Ramezani relax bro.
Its all good.
 
Goes all yoga
I am relaxed...I AM relaxed...I AM RELAXED...I AM EFFING RELAXED... Draws sword :}
 
3:51 PM
What does he throw?
 
Read the quote! :D
"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."

Stack Overflow appears to be a vast experiment to prove the truth of this statement.
3
So true! :D
 
Oh hehe!
@Wildcat I wonder how you found that.
 
@M.A.Ramezani Must be Wildcat's alt account.
 
Heh, I found it some day and bookmarked. :D
 
Well I thought Bill was a sensible man.
ALERT! ALERT!
@santiago close in the votes league...
 
4:30 PM
Oh my!
My top tag is !
