I got to be the cool know-it-all student in my chemistry class the other day. We're talking about the different kinds of materials, conductors, semi-conductors, polymers, nanomers, and the like.
Anway, the question came up, "What chemical process in the body that has to do with polymers?"
"They're all over the place," I answered.
"True, but what's the most important?" he continued.
"Probably protein synthesis," I replied.
"That's right! Amino acid production."
So, I got to be the smarty pants, even up against some students prepping for pharmacy and med school.
How fun is that?
