The Disgruntled Chemist is in the hot seat tonight. He has a rather large blog in Ca and disagrees with almost every position most of us have. However, in real life people disagree and move ahead. The Chemist is not known for his sense of humor but he will give it the old college try. The Chemist is a Grad student at UCI in California.
