This is what happens when you get a textbook that was written for homeschoolers:
“Because the equation is equivalent to the previous one, but simpler, it is accepted among friendly chemists that we will always simplify when we can. If you don’t join the ranks of friendly chemists, friendly chemists will not give you full credit for your answers on friendly tests.”
I think that everyone should take a look at these gorgeous drawings representing Women and their accomplishements in Science, by Rachel Ignotofksy - a fantastic illustrator and graphic designer. She also has a lil Etsy shop where she sells her prints here!!!
So looking at Roadhog’s Hogdrogen, my first impression was that he just really lucked out on the canisters matching his whole pig Aesthetic, but thinking about it more, what if they’re his invention?
What if Mako Rutledge, before the explosion of the omnium and the ALF, was a chemist? He made things to help people, all easily identified as Mako’s by the cute pig logos and pig puns on them. Then when his homeland was under attack, he joined the ALF, both to help fight and to supply them with Hogdrogen to combat radiation poisoning. Then, when everything went wrong and Mako Rutledge was replaced with Roadhog, he still had his old supply of Hogdrogen, but now with all the damage he took as an enforcer (and the lingering radiation) he kept them to himself. But now that he’s on his global crime spree with Junkrat, Mako Rutledge is slowly but surely coming back. While Jamie builds his bombs, Mako will be making his Hogdrogen off to the side. Although the rest of the world just sees the two Junkers as “crazy criminals”, they’re really two extremely intelligent men who will make sure no one forgets that
Marie Maynard Daly became the first Black woman in the United States to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry, upon completing her doctoral program at Columbia University in 1947. She was fascinated with the inner workings of the human body and analyzed the digestive process in her thesis “A Study of the Products Formed By the Action of Pancreatic Amylase on Corn Starch”.
Of her many scientific achievements, Daly is known for her groundbreaking work studying the causes of heart attacks, in which she discovered a link between high cholesterol and clogged arteries.
While teaching courses in biochemistry at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University, she took action to increase the number of students of color enrolled in medical schools and graduate science programs. After retiring from her position in 1986, she established a scholarship at Queens College for African-American chemistry and physics majors.
The grunts and admins are dressed differently depending on their field of study. For instance Rock type grunts/admins look like paleontologists because all fossil Pokemon are part Rock type and they are constantly in the field in rough terrain.
I am no saviour. I’m absolutely the last person on the planet who can practically help. I don’t know how to make the different types of therapeutic feeding milk. I’m no chemist. I’m no doctor. I’m no engineer. I can’t manufacture polio vaccines or organise their transportation to the health centres in Saramoussayah or Bissikirima. I can’t build schools, or design drainage systems. I can’t provide the women and children of Mandiana with water. I’m just an actor.
