From a collection of supposed kids' quotes from math and science classes:

"We use algebraical variables when we don't know what we're talking about."

It's a series of books.  Basically it's magic and other typical fantasy elements placed within a modern setting.  It's far from the first series of books to do that sort of thing, but it's a popular one.

I was trying to read it, since so many people talk about it, but I'm having some serious issues with it.

I have no idea what the Dresden Files are.

Oh dear! my chemistry classes ended 62 years ago and I can't remember the elements or their valences.

Steph, hope you and your mother are doing well.

A chlorine atom bumps into a sodium atom, which says "Ouch! I lost an electron!"
"Are you sure?"
"I'm positive!"

An oxygen atom bumps into an argon atom. It doesn't react.

Why don't I tell chemistry jokes? All the good ones argon!
