Hiya folks...

This one was forwarded by Chuck, who also deserves a pat on the back for
being the first of our many chemists to point out that Cs can not stand
from Computerscientistium because it is already the chemical abreviation
for caesium...

This comes from my good friend Letitia, also a Chemistry Postdoc.

    (Supposedly) True story (from Dartmouth):

A student comes to a young professor's office hours.  She glances
down the hall, closes his door, and kneels pleadingly. 

"I would do anything to pass this exam."  She leans closer to
him, flips back her hair, gazes meaningfully into his eyes. "I
mean..." she whispers, "...I would do...*anything*." 

He returns her gaze.  "Anything ?"


His voice softens. "*Anything* ?"


His voice turns to a whisper.  "Would you  ...  *study* ?"
