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!
Why do Helium filled balloons deflate so fast? http://chemistry.about.com/od/howthingswork/fl/Why-Do-Helium-Balloo...
I figured it out before reading the article, but there were still a couple of things mentioned that I didn't know, and found interesting.
I just posted a discussion about The Dresden Files. I rambled on for multiple times the character allotment of this comment section, as should be expected of me.
Anyway, if anyone here has read the series, I was wondering a few things, since I couldn't make it through the second book. If you can make it through my over-long screed, could you let me know what you think?
It certainly seems that a lot of companies design their products the ways Dilbert's bosses do.
