I'm seriously considering a biochemistry major with the eventual intent of attending medical school (though at the moment, I'm doing medical technology). I'm taking courses right now in general chemistry (just had the mother of all grueling exams this morning, no less), and I'll be taking chemistry for at least another five semesters. Fascinating stuff. All still up in the air though; I'm still a mere wet-behind-the-ears freshman. Want to get my M.D. somehow, no matter what I do in my undergrad years...

I've come up with names for a few chemical elements. Okay, never mind, only glass, which in my current conlang, Nem, is /lyám-an-k'il/ 'sand-crystal'. I suppose I can derive the name for silicon dioxide from that, if I figure out how to shove the word for air /ìe/ in there somewhere: /lyám-an-amâ nàn-na-ìe-wa/ - sand.GEN.mother two.PAR.air.COM = 'mother of sand with two parts air'. Fun :). ___________________________________________________________ Gesendet von Yahoo! Mail - Jetzt mit 1GB Speicher kostenlos - Hier anmelden:
