I never took chemistry in school. Everything I’ve learned, what little bit I’ve actually retained anyway, I’ve learned through self-directed teaching or tangential points in various blog posts — and I generally have trouble with such fuzzy, organic stuff. And I’ll tell you, if all of these facts of fundamental chemistry were presented in this way, I’d be paying more attention.
Poor Neon. I don’t know why she’s so dejected that her guy went after Carbon — that leather hat is like a Hydrogen magnet. I suppose it’s more because she and Carbon have no chemistry, than because she and Hydrogen have no chemistry.
