Adventures in Ethics and Science

Regular reader Duke (who this blogger knows as “Dad”) made a generous contribution to my challenge and requested sprog art and a limerick on the subject of chemistry. (Like my mom, he indicated that this donation was to go to the “NO TATTOO” fundraising total.)


A lad from the Periodic Table
took offense at his wee bottle’s label.
But both neutron emission
and spontaneous fission,
meant his isotopes just weren’t stable.


The younger Free-Ride offspring’s chemical illustration was inspired by the book reviewed here.

    Duke thanks you all for your efforts to brighten his day (and he did give the last word of the limerick before I read it–too much “Wait, Wait! Don’t Tell Me,”, I suspect).
