[RIDE OF THE HOKIEBALL] 2018-WEEK 7 COMIC

Halfway through the regular season my gents, keep up the good fight. I may or may not be with you this weekend in Chapel Shrill. I'm tentatively waiting to see if my flight to Orlando in the morning gets canceled from the incoming weather. Be safe and check on your fellow Hokies in the path!

I have boarded my plane towards the storm, y'all rep for me at UNC this weekend

this chemist looking at that "chemical structure"

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I was also chemistry/microbiology. Are we both brothers? Lol

Also you don't like a little toulene with the chemicals formula of Gatorade?

1) that's benzene
2) why on earth are you drawing NaKCl (which, sure, most basic formula or something because both sodium chloride and potassium chloride) looking like it's directly bonded to the carbonyl carbon?
3) is that a pentavalent carbon all the way on the right? or did you mean to draw a peroxide?

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

1) ha you passed the quick test to make sure you know the difference

2) I was drinking last night and being really lazy, with the board, i googled gatorades formula and half assed the structure/stereochemistry. It's ok the engineers in this feed won't know the difference.

3) no way to know..? I make most of these comics in like 30 minutes using paint and my finger on my touch screen. Lol the alcohol has affected my memory of these events.

Bonus: I mean I'm a bioanalytical chemist now for big pharma but I've purged a lot of excess info I'm not using. Sadly I did get A's for all of gen/ochem. I was actually that asshole who'd skip my 8 am because I was asleep and then break the curve when I took the test. My friends hated me lol

" It's ok the engineers in this feed won't know the difference." hahahaha nailed it!

In other news Ryan Williams sat next to me in chem and I tutored him / tried to help him best I can. (yes I took it my senior year to get core out of the way lol) so you can all thank an engineer for that. Ut Prosim :P

He passed (from my best memory). Super nice guy

I didn't continue scrolling. Drink.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Ew. And I thought atmospheric chemistry was bad

My life now...

I'm so excited. I never get to whip this one out, but here goes:

All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.

Hit the pace car?

Hit the pace car!

What for?

Because you've hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect!

Hilarious! Thanks for the laughs. We'll be down there reppin' for ya.

I was waiting for a line about how it was raining so none of the Tar Heels could step outside to come to class

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about


I wasn't firing on all cylinders last night with all the possible puns/jokes. That's great tho, I was there the whole hurricane Matthew game in my frog suit, those poor rams saps never stood a chance.

I'd like to point out that both hurricanes are the M'th iterative too. Kinda neat

Chapel Thrill! TOPO! (the not as good top-of-anything bar)

I just sit on my couch and b*tch. - HokieChemE2016

ugh mcbryde 100 8 am..... fu@#$% Dr Glanville..... that man was the worst prof I ever had the misfortune to sit through at Tech.. He would get halfway through an equation on an overhead, see he made a mistake, write "boooh!" on the overhead, crumble it up and start all over again, regardless of whatever else was written on it!

ugh to the double ugh. I hadn't thought about Dr. Glanville in maybe 10-12 years and just reading the name brought back some pretty shitty memories from my freshman year, pulling all nighters trying to study from his ridiculous book, only to get a 38 on his test and still be around a "B" after the curve. What an awful person.

Anybody know how much longer he kept teaching? I took his class in the fall of '03.

I had him in '00, and the worst part was him inviting the class to see him perform at the Lyric, since he was in the Rocky Horror Show Fan Club, and they did performances.... The idea of Dr Glanville, dressed up like Professor Frankenfurter.... eeeewwwwwww.. And yes, can confirm, failing grade on every test, yet passed class because of the massive curve he had to put on the class.

I wasn't familiar with him, I came in with the legendary GOAT that was Trivedi (inspiration in the comic).

I don't remember ever meeting him at any gatherings, I had an ex who was in the club as well lol. I'm not sure which initiation was more interesting my Frat or The Rocky Horror Club (My "guest" name was DiscoStick). I may watch some Tim Curry this week for Fall theme.

Don't dream it?💋 Be it? 🤡

Trivedi: The difference is negligible.

Oh man Dr. Glanville...haven't heard that name in 20 years. The reason I ended up with a degree in computer engineering instead of chemistry.

favorite memory of Glanville's class? Waking up at 8:30 for one of his tests, throwing on some shorts, a t shirt and some flip flops, running from Thomas to mcBryde and grabbing my scantron at 8:40. Turned it in at the end of class (8:50?) and still made a 91 on it, which was like an A+ in that class. Other than that, the class sucked to have at 8am monday first semester of college.

Oh Glanville. I will never forget. Glanville says booo...

Interesting fact, my brother in law and I both failed Glanvilles class freshman year and had to use the freshman rule to retake. Only class either of us failed in our entire lives. We went to Tech about 10 years apart, he had him on 86 and I had him in 95. Funny how so many of us groan when we think chemistry because we immediately think of him.

wow. I had no idea he taught at tech for so long. I had him fall of 2003.

I had him in Fall of 03 too.

He still wasn't the worst professor I had at Tech.

One word: Slawny. (Physics)

Slawny was bad, but I don't remember doing badly in his class. I think that was cause I had an overachieving HS physics teacher that was really good and covered everything we did in Slawny's class so I coasted. I struggled a lot more in Long's physics II class.

I had 2 major problems in that class. One was the online homework. The way I was taught physics in high school didn't jive with the way the online stuff wanted me to answer.

The second thing was our accents. I just couldn't understand hardly anything he was saying in class. He has his accent and I have mine. This southern american just couldn't decipher his eastern european accent.

I had Glanville in the fall of 2000 and Slawny later... both were pretty bad. I forget the name of the dorky white guy I had for Physics 2306 but I think I got the highest grade in the class, A++ easy peasy.

On a positive note, for DiffEQ, I had this Korean PhD candidate who spoke no English but he was far and away the best prepared and most enthusiastic professor I have ever had. He meticulously prepared his lectures for every class and wrote it all on the board and gesticulated wildly in the direction of the board and it was an absolute blast. Love that guy, whatever his name was. Him, Torgersen, and the guy who taught Greek/Roman Mythology were so, so good. I never had the guy everyone talks about on here with the pipe and the smoking jacket.

Sounds like A.B. Mandelstamm's Economics classes. Class average in the 30's for every test.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

My second semester of Physics (E&M, don't remember the course number) they had all the sections take one exam at the same time. They rotated which professor teaching the course would write the exam each time. On one of the exams, the average number of correct answers was 5... on a 17 question test. Womp womp

I got a 13 on a second semester physics test that was curved to a high C.

My roommate used to not even study just kinda go in and guess a bunch and walk out with a 20 and be like "eh it's good enough"

"Don't expect there to be a curve!"

Narrator's voice: "There was a curve."

You want to be emotionally battered and abused? Immunology was a starting class of 200 and drops to <50 after the first exam. Dr. Klaus' tests would wreck you if you didn't study to the point being able to quote the book he wrote. 10 answer multiple choice questions (4 options, 4 combinations, all of the above, none of the above)

The final exam in my multivariable calculus class was 10 questions, multiple choice (i.e. no partial credit).

That's common across pretty much all colleges for Physics 2. I remember a coworker who went to Pitt saying he ran into the same thing. 35% on most exams was a B.

All this chemistry talk makes me so happy I took AP Chem in high school and never saw chem again.
