Basic Chemistry Meets Advanced Physics

| Learning | September 16, 2013

(I’m in chemistry class, and we’ve all branched out all over the room for an experiment. At this point, the teacher is on the opposite side of the rather large lab.)

Me: “So, first we need the bunsen burner.”

(I grab it to move it closer, but the two pieces aren’t secured right and the bottom falls off. I let out a short scream of surprise.)

Teacher: “Everything okay?”

Me: “Yeah, we’re fine—wait.”

(I notice that the teacher is suddenly right behind us.)

Me: “How did you do that? You were way over there not a second ago!”

Teacher: “When you work with chemicals, acids, and flames, and you hear a student scream, you suddenly develop the ability to teleport. Scientific fact.”
