...in that both seem to be made of cats.

Organic Chemistry Explained, with Cats

As someone who is not unfamiliar with both fields (yes, students, I do know something besides history and economics, wonder of wonders!) I can attest that this is, indeed, an apt comparison.  

Also apt is this comment:

"It also follows that, much like cats, molecules only expend energy to generate high-energy conformations just to reach other low-energy conformations. Also, molecules poop in a box."

I'll have to wrap up this post now, as my own molecule has arranged herself in a high-energy conformation that statistically indicates she is expecting me to provide further energy input, and is, correspondingly, vibrating at a high enough frequency to produce a somewhat irritating audio output.

I was quite...pleased to find that the new online edition of Smithsonian Air and Space Magazine has a truly useful article on degaussing your cat.  I know all you other cat servants out there are constantly worrying about your cat generating its own magnetic fields, and this simple procedure should put your mind at ease.

Merytamun, fortunately, shows enough randomness in her chosen resting arrangements that I can be assured she is not overly aligned to the Earth's magnetic field.

She does, however, have the tendency to baffle science in other ways:




Sigh.
