things you never learned in high school chemistry

there is actually a molecule called fucitol.

i'm not kidding about this. i saw it in a wikipedia entry about glycerine as a related molecule.


g'head. look it up.

i'm sure they pronounce it "FEW-si-tol" or something like that, but still.


you're welcome.

That one took me a minute (up at 4:30 this morning). But then I laughed.

I do not at all put it past chemists to have named it that especially, then told everyone they were pronouncing it wrong.
