Blinded me with science!
Chemistry geeks are awesome. They get all sorts of glassware to play with (after having washed it out thoroughly, of course), they get to burn things to complete experiments, and they have little furry mascots. Well, they don't currently, but they should.
Although Mole Day technically begins at 6:02 a.m. local time on 10/23 each year, we'll have to take your word for it. That's earlier than we like to be moving. Unless you're going to provide a mole of caffeine to wake us up. (With a molar mass of 194.2 g, one mole of caffeine would be enough to kill 19 normal humans or roughly 3 ThinkGeek customers, who've been working on their tolerance-levels for years.) At that hour of the day, we'd prefer to be the burrowing sort of mole.
6:02 p.m. we can totally handle, though. We'd be happy to raise a glass to chemists everywhere when Avogadro's evening number rolls around. A mole of pure water is just a sip, so we'll have to shop around for other potential liquids. With ethyl alcohol, you get basically the perfect amount for a shot, that is, if you wanted to do a shot of pure ethyl alcohol. Which, kids playing at home, you do NOT. 1) We ain't knocking back anything that's 200 proof. 2) Scientists have taught us many things, two of which are that we love our esophagi and benzene is not for human consumption. Do not want. No, seriously. Don't do it. Besides, you know what would be even better? Guacamole made with tasty, fresh Avocadros. Now that's a celebration of chemistry we can really dig into. Molé!
A mole (the mammalian kind) made up of the Avogadro constant to two decimal places (6.02 x 1023) repeated over and over printed in white and black on this chestnut 100% cotton t-shirt.
