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.

Joan, I had to look it up also.

When I found the Dutch article, I just kept looking until I found an English article.  Made more sense.
