Happy F-ing Valentine's Day

When I see this I think of Exxon.


For those of you who happen to have a "Valentine" who doesn’t make you miserable, appreciate it because it won’t last.

In more upbeat news, Liza wants to be your Valentine...


I shall follow up with some more NSFW images of Liza at Nuclear Tentacles.

The aldol reaction is an important carbon-carbon bond formation reaction in organic chemistry. In its usual form, it involves the nucleophilic addition of a ketone enolate to an aldehyde to form an aldol (β-hydroxy ketone), a structural unit found in many naturally occurring molecules and pharmaceuticals. Sometimes, the aldol addition product loses a molecule of water during the reaction to form an α,β-unsaturated ketone. This is called an aldol condensation. The aldol reaction was discovered independently by Charles-Adolphe Wurtz and by Alexander Porfyrevich Borodin in 1872. Borodin observed the aldol dimerization of 3-hydroxybutanal from acetaldehyde under acidic conditions. The aldol reaction is used widely in the large scale production of commodity chemicals such as pentaerythritol. The aldol structural motif is especially common in polyketides, a class of natural products from which many pharmaceuticals are derived, including the potent immunosuppressant FK506, the tetracycline antibiotics, and the antifungal agent amphotericin B. Extensive research on the aldol reaction has produced highly efficient methods which enable the otherwise challenging synthesis of many polyketides in the laboratory. (more...)

There are certain special times in one's life that they realize nobody gives a flying fuck about them.
For me, that time is now.

Some holidays are designed to make single people feel like crap.

How much chocolate was consumed yesterday?

I guess 400 trillion tons.

Akubi said...

Hey guyz,
Things are looking up!
I have a ride (hot Safeway delivery guy) and some company (sexy, crazy, blonde musician) for my post-V Day spa escapade. Gotta keep the economy afloat!
I packed a lot of chocolate - and may not be online much until I return.

I'm spajealous... have a great escapade...

kuato said...

I'm glad you get a chance to relax.

Akubi said...

Hmmm, I posted something that was entirely lost in the ether...And I don't like repeating myself just because Blogger sux.
Anyway, my dogs just went nuts, because yet another guy with a pit bull was letting him shit outside my door.
I looked out the window and glared at him. He walked away.
