I’m very good at math. Well, some math. I always used to say that I was great so long as there were no numbers! As soon as there were numbers, I messed it up. What this meant, of course, is that I looked crummy at math back when I couldn’t memorize times tables but once I hit algebra, geometry, and calculus, I was a whiz! Anyway, it would appear that I am not the only one with such problems.
Now, that’s a graph
I need to put somewhere! You wouldn’t believe how hard concentrations and dilutions get as a post-doc, whereas I can talk theoretical stoichiometry all day. If you understood that last sentence, I love you forever.
Anyway. Next time your super-smart friend is annoying you, ask them a few simple math problems, you might end up feeling better!
