Tik Tok Chemistry
Update 5/21/10: We’ve decided to remove the “Tik Tok Chemistry” video posted here earlier. We originally posted the link because the video is, in many ways, funny and irreverent. Nevertheless, the numerous, glaring safety violations that permeate the video do provide the wrong message about proper behavior and protocol in chemistry labs. As we learned from the tragic death of Sherharbano Sangji at UCLA in January 2009, safety in chemistry labs is really nothing to joke about.
It’s the middle of the week–a perfect excuse to share entertaining diversions such as this chemistry parody of Ke$ha‘s “Tik Tok” (kids these days…). And remember, whether in fun or earnest, always remember to wear appropriate safety attire and follow safety practices in the lab. We don’t want anyone showing up on The Safety Zone’s Friday Roundup. Happy Wednesday!
