Spoiler for Nah..


I was going to let the whole thing go with just a facetious comment or two (cuz you know everything on wikipedia is 100% accurate @_@)...but now you've really poked the chemical engineering dragon :P

Spoiler for Science and math


Edit: Now I may just have to go unleash my scientifically fueled flames on wikipedia. I'm sure they'll be grateful XP.

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

<3 BBC's Sherlock, the series and the man. "Smart is the new sexy."

And under any conditions of T and p, "a pint's a pound the world around"
is a saying that's spelled and spoken the same throughout the English-speaking
world. A case of artistic expression being more invariant than science. ^_^

Edit:
To admit the English-language usage restriction of an ostensibly global shibboleth.

Comment:
Even though it's imperfect science, its wide usage well qualifies it as a puzzle clue. :dry:

You must not think me necessarily foolish because I am facetious,  nor will I consider you necessarily wise because you are grave.  Sydney Smith.
