Science majors love to complain about their workload (I would know because I am guilty of doing this every day of the week). I constantly find myself thinking, "why did I voluntarily decide to put myself through this torture?" No matter how many times I say I hate physics or that I am diene, I continue on life as a science major. If you can relate, this might be so just because it is too late to switch majors or you cannot see yourself doing anything else. Or, you know, you might just be a lover of chemistry jokes and realize no normal human being would be laughing as hard as you do when you stumble upon them. Below some of my favorite jokes can be found.
To clarify, a photon is an electromagnetic particle or a particle of light energy. Photons are always in motion and have no mass. Essentially this joke is funny for more than one reason.
I am sure most people, science major or not, have heard the phrase "like dissolves like" in a science class. All I have to say is that I would hate to be a polar bear trying to swim in water.
Carbon is literally in everything. But did you know that when carbon is put under high pressure it actually makes diamonds? Well, if you did not, now you do. Think about that the next time you have five papers, a presentation, three quizzes, and two exams in one week. You might just become a diamond yourself.
Well, they tried. A+ for effort.
Who knew Lady Gaga was inspired by the periodic table (even though the chemical symbol of arsenic is As, the sound "Ah" certainly fits the chemical. The element molybdenum actually has the chemical symbol, Mo, not Ma. I guess we can let these mistakes slip)? I'm glad to know that I am not the only one who likes to make words or phrases from chemical symbols. It is a relief to know that if Lady Gaga can produce a hit single using science that I too can make it big in the world.
Two of my favorite things are chemistry and superheroes. If the two are combined, it is as if all the stars in the sky have perfectly aligned.
See? Chemistry IS funny. You just need to get past the tears.
Maybe it is just my inner nerd, but on my worst days I know that a cheesy chemistry joke will make my day ten times better. I hope even just one of these jokes made you smile because it takes less energy and muscles to smile than frown. Science.
