Chemists and Chemicals

I had a lunch meeting today with a group of chemists. I knew I would have a story to blog before I got to the restaurant.

Chemist 1: I got some menus for us....Whew, they smell strong!

Me: Yes, I could smell it as soon as I opened the menu.

Chemist 1: I wonder if that's the ink smell.

Chemist 2: I don't know..maybe a solvent?

Chemist 3: What? A smell?

Chemist 4: It's probably the solvent.

Chemist 2: We need to run a GC on it...anybody?

Thankfully, nobody proceeded to tear a piece of the menu off to sample later using the GC.

At least to my knowledge.

Had it been our office together it would have been like:

"What font is this?"
"Oh gross why did they use those colors together, that is not appealing."
