Geek Love: Send A #Chemvalentine To Show ‘Em You Care

This week, I inadvertently started a #Chemvalentine meme on Twitter after seeing a tweet from @Sulfur_Blue about chemistry valentines: Get the chemistry flowing by sending a #Chemistry Valentine? https://www.msu.edu/~nguyen82/handouts/12/Chemistry_Valentines.pdf What ensued was an outpouring of awesomeness from all the chemistry lovers out there. We here at Newscripts have compiled our Top 20 favorite #Chemvalentines just for you. Feel free to use these to woo your scientist friends this Valentine’s Day. ThinkGeek, if you’re listening, we’d all buy a pack of these cards. 1)      Valentine, I’ve got my ion you. (HT @Sulfur_Blue) 2)      Valentine, I can’t eat, sleep, or run reactions when you argon.
