Ph34R TeH PiX3z

aniline pixies

Aaaaand the update is here! For those of you not in Chem 36, we synthesized acetanilide a few weeks ago using aniline and acetic anhydride, which doesn’t much matter. What DOES matter is that my fume hood mate poured boiling solution straight from the hot plate into a lukewarm beaker, which then proceeded to break. I was nearly slain by flying glass and boiling pixies! Not nearly as exciting as the dude who spilled hot sand on himself during a lab and got driven to Vaden by the professor, though. Why can’t I get maimed like that and get one-on-one time? So far, my worst mishap was getting base on the table. Laaaame.
