Y’all wanna start with a joke about sodium or Na?

I thought so too, so here are some fun facts instead:

-  I heard that science students torqued when they went out.

-  It is easier to stay awake until 6 AM than to wake up at 6 AM, because things in motion tend to stay in motion, whereas things at rest tend to stay at rest.

- It is known that 7 ate 9, but have you ever wondered why? Because you have to eat 3 square meals a day.

-  You can make beer out of root beer by putting it in a square cup.

-  Chemists’ favorite dogs are labs.

-  There are two types of people in this world: those who can extrapolate from incomplete data.

-  The best books are those about anti-gravity, because they are so hard to put down.

-  The fundamental question of “Watt is love?” has yet to be answered by the world’s best philosophers.

I hope I didn’t drive you hexane with these jokes. Amine they are pretty basic! On my end, I found them to be quite humerus.
