It's the unexpected electric shock of sexuality that surges through our bodies when we accidentally brush up against a stranger in a crowded subway car.It's the palpable heat that ignites when two bodies ever so suddenly find themselves inexplicably to one another.It’s no wonder, then, that text message miscommunications were a daily source of stress and anxiety.It was yet another box to check as we sought a significant other: textual chemistry.My friend and I had just seen a play and, like everyone else in the theater, I took out my phone as the curtain came down.Waiting for me were five lengthy text messages from a guy I had been seeing for two months."Oh my God, he’s so desperate,” my friend said when she saw my screen.“This is totally normal for us,” I explained. ” I scrolled up to show her my seven unanswered text messages before, his three blocks of text before that and so on.I'd heard similar complaints from friends: potential dates who texted too much, too little; used too many emojis, didn’t seem to understand emojis at all; were too serious, used to many “lols” when they clearly were not .Each text was carefully analyzed for hidden meaning.
The chemist sees the glass completely full, half with liquid and half with air.
These 15 chemistry jokes and puns are really cheesy and may only have the power to make a chemist laugh, but don't worry: we've included an explanation below each joke so at least you'll understand their cheesiness. Explanation: H20 is the molecular formula for water. Explanation: This is a play on the phrase "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem." But in chemistry a solution is a completely dissolved mixture of two or more compounds, and a precipitate is a a solid that forms from a chemical reaction in a liquid solution.
In honor of our most elemental (heh heh) science, how about some chemistry jokes? The first one says "I think I'll have an H2O." The second one says "I think I'll have an H2O too" — and he died. Explanation: The glass is always completely full of something, be it a solid, liquid, or gas — unless the entire thing is in a vacuum and all the atoms are removed. If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
These discussions aren’t all that different from those of generations past: pick up lines have always been picked apart and the art of the voicemail analyzed by singles long before the advent of texting.
And many of the old, gendered traditions of who reaches out to whom and when have (for better or worse) persisted.
My friend, who lived strictly by the rule that you should not double text for fear of looking too “thirsty,” as the kids call it, was aghast. My now-boyfriend has been teased for “texting like a girl,” but it was immediately one of my favorite things about him.
