Why Chemistry Sucks

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’ve recently determined that chemistry sucks, and can join other sucky things on my list of things that suck (similiar to Bush’s Axis of Evil). Chemistry sucks because despite the fact that it tries to be an exact science and it’s taught as an exact science, it is not, in fact, an exact science. For example, we’re currently working on solving equations that determine pH’s, solubility, equilibria. Yet, certain parts of very critical equations can actually be left out if values are small enough! It doesn’t make any sense. The only reason I’m not dropping it is because A) it’s a required class, and B) it’s the last required chemistry class and I want to get it done and over with NOW! I’ve also managed to find a cool little resource that will hopefully help: http://www.sparknotes.com/chemistry/. They worked in High School for English, hopefully they’ll work now.
