Removing fluorescein from the organic phase. During the reaction an amide of fluorescein was made what doesn’t have a color and it does not fluoresces under these conditions. So hopefully, the transparency of the upper layer means something good.

The bottom layer is a dilute (1M) sodium hydroxide solution what reacts with the fluorescein to form the highly fluorescent fluoriescein sodium salt what produces this intense green color in the aqueous phase.

Interesting fact: the acid form of the fluorescein does not emit the characteristic intense green color under UV light, it only emits a yellowish-orange color in high concentrations.

I am jealous

All of my separations are a muddy orange color.  I want pretty green.

Like.. just plain peppers or do you cook them a certain way or..?

I just cooked them in a saucepan but I can’t think of any ways they are not good.

You know what the best part about being a girl who plays multiplayer games is? Being accused of being an attention whore when you didn’t want all that unwanted attention in the first place. 

Because playing video games for hours and hours every week is not for my own personal enjoyment, but is instead an elaborate ploy to get internet strangers to notice me.

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

Fun shark attack facts:

  • In 1996, toilets injured 43,000 Americans a year. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, 2,600 Americans were injured by room fresheners. Sharks injured 13.
  • In 1996, buckets and pails injured almost 11,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13.
  • For every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks.

Conclusions:

  1. Humans are assholes.
  2. Sharks are not assholes.
  3. Apparently everyone in 1996 lived in a real-life infomercial.

I want to spend a day in the mind of Neil Gaiman, honestly. 

You really don’t. It’s weird in here. Also I think that thing over there in the corner of my mind is moving.

Don’t look. Maybe it won’t see us.
