Happy April Fool's Day! Why not celebrate with a little humor from the world of science?
No, that's not an April Fool's joke. It really IS possible to blend humor with science and math. The American Chemical Society proves it in the video above.
You may find some of the jokes funnier than others. One of my favorites: "Never trust an atom – they make up everything."
There's another gem about two glasses of water concerned about the too-cool-for-school behavior of their ice-cube son. The punch line requires a junior-high understanding of chemistry.
If math is more your thing, there's this classic set-up:
A man walks into a bar and asks for 10 times more drinks than anyone else. The barman says, "Now THAT is an order of magnitude!"
