So heres what I did. Yes I AM obbsessed with this scanner but I was also really bored in Chemisty class today. Here is a copy of my notes. Not a very good one though. Anyone get this equilibriam stuff? You can't really read it though. And yes i know that my handwriting is really messy.

That stuff may not look important to you now.
But you should take all the Chem and Bio that you can. Once you have done that you can go into the healthcare field. I am a pharmacist and there is a BIG shortage of pharmacists nationwide. As the population gets older the shortage will increase. The schools are limited in the amount of students they can put out. I can pick almost any city in the US hand have a job within a week. New graduates are getting $25,000 sign on bonus. Some places are even giving $5,000 a year in a retension bonus, just to keep you!! Salaries are up around $100,000 in some of the big cites!! (not anywhere near that where i live). I stay here for the so called "quality of life"!

So take all the Science that you can!!

I agree with RossT

Chemistry was my college major too (Philosophy/religion my minor). There is a great demand in the chem/bio field. You'll never hunt long for a job.

Though money shouldn't be a motivator. Life is short; do what you enjoy

My major is mechanical engineering. I remember my last Chem teacher talking about that shortage and all that stuff. It sounded interesting. Off to study. Laterz

Ross T is right. Plus, the job doesn't get boring because there are always new things coming out. Another plus, you go home clean and your body isn't all beat up.

Had the pencils in my bag. Use them to make notes more clear. That way I can see differant steps. Rather then everything all in one color. It's confusing that way.

Tammy (my wife, the chem/physics instructor) said,

Well, yeah! It's called a Thermite reaction!

She said she's seen that same reaction burn through a thick-walled metal container and the glob of molten metal fall on the table. Well, onto an asbestos pad laying on the table.

We won't talk about what happens when you drop a chunk of sodium into a bucket of water.

I had a physics teacher obsessed with doing that, every day. Eventually one day the ceiling tiles caught fire... Must be something they put in the Michigan water .

I heard a story about a student teacher a few years back, who dropped a marble-sized (I think) rock of sodium into a bucket full of water. Her "mentor" teacher watched it happen kind of like in slow motion, as she was moving towards the student teacher, trying to stop her.
It sank straight to the bottom, and knocked all the water straight up, out of the bucket. Took out two ceiling tiles.
No names.

Also saw an "educational" video of someone throwing a five pound brick of sodium into a pond.
