Also, scientists would never ask a silly question like "how can salt lose its saltiness?" It's easy. Pour salt into water, then run a current through it. You'll get chlorine gas, hydrogen gas, and a bowl/bucket/whatever of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda). None of which is salty (though all three could kill you in sufficient quantities).


It is also used to industrially produce soda ash (sodium carbonate) via the Solvay process, commonly used in glass making and water softening. Although you never use soda-glass lab glassware, as it tends to shatter from heat stress during heating/cooling operations like distilling or gas collection.

I feel like I've at least partially justified my tuition.

Perhaps the problem with this argument in general is that the people most willing to participate in it are the ones you would least like to.

Are you telling me everyone participated in government as a child after their grandparents gave them a book of "100 Political Appointments" that they would sit around and divy out with their siblings when the cable went out, but now everyone's been through every job in government so many times and they're all so banal and repetitive that when someone brings one up it feels like you're talking to a 7th grader?

Wait, I remember this scenario. Now I'm either supposed to offer you a no-bid contract that kills wildlife in my district but makes me rich or leave my wife for you, pissing off my constituents and ending my career but ending in true love.

You're ALWAYS putting wildlife and your career before us! Let's make this dilemma easier; we're through!

Huh, well that was easy. If only the trite dilemmas from the books were as easy as this real life scenario!

Dogen raised them as emo kids, so they'll cut themselves.
