So, are you going to be a medical doctor or a doctor in some field where no one else cares that you're a doctor except those within your field of work?

The latter! But **** you, my title will still be Dr. and everyone will have to address me as such! But only people I don't like, because it's just a douchey thing to do otherwise.

If I'm not mistaken, medical doctors get MD's not PhD's. Any way, that's why I found a program for Comp Neural Science that would give me both.

People in my undergrad lab somehow manage to make stuff explode. Also, set bins on fire.

I just managed to melt together a distillation apparatus once. It was the technician's fault, though (silly woman put 135°C MP clamps on when I was running it at 280°C).

Congrats, though, Vataro! That's really great.

Meh, with the stuff we have in the lab the worst we can do easily is set fire to solvents.

Which is why it's kind of impressive that someone managed to make something explode!

It's not like you really need fire to make something explode. Hell, a little dry ice, some water and a sealed container will do the trick.

We don't seem to do anything with dry ice (yet).

But yeah, just heat a sealed system enough and it'll explode, so it's not really all that hard.

Protip: Dont use Arizona Ice Tea bottles. we used to make dry ice bombs on occasion (ok a lot) and we'd use any bottle we could get ahold of. Well the Arizona Ice Tea bottle is brittle enough that it goes off very quickly. Blew up in my hand and boy did that scare the **** out of me. Fortunately it didn't hurt.

Yow! We put a bunch in a 2lt soda bottle, shook it up and tossed it off the porch. Sadly, it didn't go off. So we waited, and it still didn't go off. So now we've got this bomb basically sitting on the front lawn. Could go off right now, maybe 5 minutes from now, maybe never. So of course, we got out the bb gun and started shooting at it. Plink, miss. Plink, miss. Plink *KABOOM*. Darn thing sounded like a cannon when it went off.

Good times! Smiley: grin

I don't like explosions. (Weird chemist, right?)

I'm getting more and more tempted to get like an AK-47 or something for the lulz, though. Like, just so I can say I used to own one. I'm not particularly interested to take the effort to learn how to use those things.

This somehow reminds me how my... friend? ex? something once stole an air raid siren from an airforce base and carried it into the village with a few people and set it off. I liked that story...
