“Alex, I’ll take ‘Public Chemistry Literacy’ for $1,000”

Nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, on this planet IS CHEMICAL-FREE. Any questions?

Trebeck: "Okay, Public Chemistry Literacy for $1,000. . ." "The answer is, 'Absolutely nothing.'" Ding! Contestant: What things on Planet Earth are "chemical-free"? Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Tonight in the United States (and maybe even in Canada), the legendary game show, Jeopardy!, will be dedicated to questions on chemistry in celebration of 2011 as the International Year of Chemistry. Here are the details from the IYC website: Jeopardy!, one of North America’s leading syndicated game shows, will feature questions related to chemistry and IYC in an episode airing in the United States and Canada on June 21, 2011. With its 9 million daily viewers, Jeopardy! provides the perfect venue for publicizing the IYC’s message – to celebrate chemistry and the contributions that it makes to society, and to increase the interest and public appreciation of chemistry. Watch Jeopardy! on June 21 and play along with the contestants to test your knowledge of chemistry. The show can be viewed in the United States on ABC-TV (check local listings for air times in your area). And for those of you playing along at home, @CASChatter will be live-tweeting beginning at 7:30 pm EDT. Perhaps I shall as well.
