No thanks. I'm fasting.
I'm still not used to that verb in English, Aaargh!
 
@M.A.Ramezani You could say "I'm abstaining from food."
 
@LordStryker My. Those toy tanks really look nice.
@LordStryker That's too fancy. I can't possibly say it.
I can say I'm almost dying from thirst though.
Then you know I'm fasting.

iftar?
 
Iftar (Arabic: إفطار‎ ifṭār 'breakfast') is the evening meal when Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. For Sunnis, it is at the time of the call to prayer for the evening prayer; for Shias, it is after the evening prayer. ARY held a discussion on the context and reason for this difference in Iftar timings between Sunni and Shia Islamic school of thoughts. == Description == Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramadan and is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast together. Iftar is taken right after Maghrib time, which is around sunset. Traditionally...
 
Oh cool!
Sorry, I am very ignorant of Muslim culture.
 
No probs.
@LordStryker Hehe$\ldots$ Because it looks like a Game of Thrones name?
 
I haven't watched GoT in probably 3 or so years
 
I haven't watched GoT for probably 300 years.

Why was yttribium named so
 
Hullo @Ravindra! Welcome to the chatroom!
Wasn't it named because of that city in Sweden?
You could check a Wikipedia article though.
 
Ytterby (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈʏtːərˌbyː]) is a village on the Swedish island of Resarö, in Vaxholm Municipality in the Stockholm archipelago. The name of the village means "outer village". == Chemical discoveries == At a quarry and mine near the village, the rare earth mineral yttria was discovered and named after the village. This crude mineral eventually proved to be the source of four new elements that were named after the mineral ore and the village. These elements are yttrium (Y), erbium (Er), terbium (Tb), and ytterbium (Yb) and were first described in 1794, 1842, 1842, and 1878...
 
I checked
 
6:07 PM
That's it.
 
I am in class 9th so i dont know much
but i had a question
 
No probs.
I just finished 10th.
 
Are there anymore amphoteric substance other then water and ammonia
Nice
 
@RavindraSahay Of course.
Let me think.
Hydrogen phosphate ion.
It works as a buffer.
 
really? but hydrogen phosphate does not satisfy arrhenious base and acid criteria
 
6:14 PM
@RavindraSahay Arrhenius?! ARRHENIUS?!
That theory isn't worth s*it, with all due respect. :)
 
hmm
So u respect bronstead and Lowry
 
@Rav have you studied Bronsted-Lowry acids and bases?
 
i mean follow
 
@RavindraSahay They work good enough.
 
A little
 
6:16 PM
@Rav have you studied Lewis acids?
 
its nowhere near the course but am still trying
well idk about acids
i gtg sleep
ltoo late in india
btw where r u from
 
Hmm$\ldots$ I may find some good tutorials for you @Rav.
 
Thanks
 
@RavindraSahay Milky way galaxy.
 
I have progressed with physics a lot
 
6:18 PM
Good.
 
well I love astrophysics
nice answer
I might as well say THe local group
 
Hullo @Jonsca!

Gawd, I just finished another horrible track q_q
Probably less horrible than the first one though
 
6:22 PM
I only listen to soundtracks.
Movies, games, trailers, and such.
 
By finished I mean finished to make, not to listen to
 
Oh?
Thumbs up Kewl. Can you upload them?
 
I just uploaded the new one to soundcloud. That makes 2 of them. I have no musical background or talent whatsoever though, so it's pretty awful ;_;
 
OK, so I'll listen to 'em when no one's around.
 
xD
Or use headphones
 
6:31 PM
Meh. I don't wanna make my little brother curious.
 
@Hipp Do you play the keyboard in these tracks?
 
@LordStryker I can only play the oboe, I don't play the piano (or any such instrument) at all, so no I can't use my keyboard. I just use my mouse.
 
Thats great! Did you know, Eddie Van Halen plays the oboe :)
 
Who's that ?
 
Oh, just some guitar player.

Q: How are Organic Compounds named?

Ravindra SahayI have heard of of a special system which specially deals with naming of organic compounds. How do we get names such as 2-methylpropan-1-ol. I have tried googling it and found few links but their explanation was way above my head. I also asked my teacher about the same question and he said this ...

Haha! Someone's busy with IUPAC nomenclature!
And that someone is$\ldots$ me.
@Lord I wanna ask your opinion on this. Should I read IUPAC's blue book?
 
uhhh, probably not. I'd use it as a reference but to read it, unless you're going to become a full-time organic chemist or something, would probably not be the most efficient use of your time.
 
Its first 20 pages have been really useful to me though.
 
Then keep reading until it becomes not so useful.
 
I now know why I'd see an azo in one compound, while I'd see an aza in another.
@LordStryker That, my Stryker friend, is the most profound answer I've ever seen
 
@M.A.Ramezani I think the word you're looking for is pragmatic ;)
 
6:50 PM
Mind-boggling.
This, if exists, would be such a weird membrane. How would the inner side of membrane act as a hydrophile and hydrophobe? — M.A.Ramezani 10 secs ago

@Manish BTW, I didn't mean to be harsh that day, that comment.
 
Yeah I know
Just saying that it can come off as abrasive even if you didnt mean to
 
And I think it did.
Sheesh.
 
7:18 PM
Well gotta run guys. A meeting demands my presence.
Good luck to all the nominees!
 
7:36 PM
Haha, I love that I was randomly browsing on the internet, found something potentially interesting about my area of research, followed a couple of links, and suddenly I arrived at the @GeoffHutchison group page!

8:13 PM
Awesome! (ome much needed good news!)
 
Hullo @Undo! Welcome to our Humble table!
 
I was coming to report the election results, but I guess I got beat to it
 
Haha!
There are a bunch of people more enthusiastic than fireworks here.
 
@M.A.Ramezani :D
 
8:15 PM
Wait what? I got elected before jonsca? That's not right ...
 
ALL HAIL OUR OVERLORDS! @ManishEarth @Martin-マーチン @jonsca
 
Yeah$\ldots$ How come I'm not elected @Manish? Hmm?
 
hah
 
OK so, I think it's after the election now.
 
So @ManishEarth - same place to send tributes?
 
8:19 PM
lol
 
I send @M.A.Ramezani as a tribute to the Mods
 
Why you!
I got reminded I gotta change my profile pic.
 
@M.A.Ramezani To a boat ?
 
Nah. Something a bit fancier. A luxury ship or something like that.
 
8:21 PM
A luxury cyclohexane boat configuration ?
 
oh dang what'd I miss??!
 
Hah! The @Lord came.
 
HOLY CRAP CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS!
 
BADUM TSS TSS
 
I'll be sure to toast a beer each to every one of your names tonight!
 
8:23 PM
For me? Poppy eyes
 
Scratch that. I'll toast one to every nominee. Six is a good number.
 
Hey, how did I end up here?!
 
Six is in fact a perfect number
 
haha 13 is my favorite but that might be a tad too many
*sigh i hate these windows updates
I missed the announcement
Well I'm off! I will see all of you fine ladies and gentlemen later.
 
Heh. So I sent my Carbons to find their friends. Instead, I made some little O dudes and Si dudes sit in there in their place. I officially changed to cyclotrisiloxane hexaphenyl.
@LordStryker Cya!
Holy crud what the heck!
My profile's so black now!
Oh OK.
That looks better now.
I just substituted three of the phenyls. They made me look, black.
And black is way too cool a color for my style.
 
8:32 PM
Sorry, we don't allow black molecules here
 
I'm a white guy now.
2,4,6-trimethyl-2,4,6-triphenyl cyclotrisiloxane.
That's a long new name.
 
anyway, gotta go.. much needed great news!
 
TTYL!
Wow, my new profile's chic!
It looks cool on chat, and that's all I'm asking for.
@Jan and @Lord might be interested:
