I was not going to dress up for Halloween this year, but then there was a costume contest in my organic chemistry glass, and the winner got an extra point on the next exam, so I figured it might be worth it to throw something together.
To the average Joe I'm a bear. To a chemist, I'm something slightly more specific.
When a molecule has polarity (slightly electric positive or negative regions), you write it with a lowercase delta and the polar charge.
Notice anything? I'm a polar bear! I still don't know if I won the contest. Votes hadn't been tallied by the end of class.
Liam got to be Loki again, this time with the up-coming Thor Ragnarok movie as the inspiration. We kind of meshed up a combination of the costumes he wears in the movie to get our version. I bet you can't even tell which one below is Loki or Liam
(PS, neither Loki nor Liam are levitating knives, they're flipping them. Cool.)
Reese is really into cats lately, and wanted to be a black cat. She and two of her friends all dressed up as cats together. It must be popular this season, because Reese tells me she counted a total of 19 cats at school today!
I think she's one cute cat! She even did her own makeup.
And here's a black cat gif to make things even. Also this may or may not describe the way Reese behaves when she's pretending to be a cat.
