No more equants....until tomorrow

Today in Math, after certain people kept talking about equants in Copernicus, when there were no equants, the noramlly very calm Mr. Clark, exasperated, finally said, "No one's talking about an equant. The equant has been shot... shot and killed."

No one mentioned the equant for the rest of class.
(well until I did at the very end, but that was because I was coming to more fully realize Copernicus' hypocrisy, and Mr. Clark told me to stop thinking ahead, and wait till tomorrow.)


Lab is fun!

Doing flame tests on different chemicals can be quite fun.
Especially solutions with copper in them. Those are a very preeeety green.
And potash has a nice pinky/purple color.
