Customer: “Have you accepted Jesus as your personal savior?”
Me: “Nope. Your total is $7.00.”
Customer: “I don’t pay non-believers.”
Me: “Well, it’s a good thing you’re paying [Delivery Company], then.”
Customer: “Do you know any commandments, you Satan worshipper?”
Me: “Thou Shalt Not Steal. Seven dollars, please.”
(Then he threw a $10 on the counter and left. Three bucks for Satan!)
Happy Thanksgiving to my readers in the United States!
- I WANT THE JUICE!!
- YOU CANT HANDLE THE JUICE!!1!
A tetraphenylethylene core-based small molecular acceptor with a unique 3D molecular structure is developed. Bulk-heterojucntion blend films with a small feature size (≈20 nm) are obtained, which lead to non-fullerene organic solar cells (OSCs) with 5.5% power conversion efficiency. The work provides a new molecular design approach to efficient non-fullerene OSCs based on 3D-structured small-molecule acceptors.
A newly developed P,N-bidentate ligand enables enantioselective intramolecular cyclopropanation by a reactive α-oxo gold carbene intermediate generated in situ. The ligand design is based on our previously proposed structure (with a well-organized triscoordinated gold center) of the carbene intermediate in the presence of a P,N-bidentate ligand. A C2-symmetric piperidine ring was incorporated in the ligand as the nitrogen-containing moiety. A range of racemic transformations of α-oxo gold carbene intermediates have been developed recently, and this new class of chiral ligands could enable their modification for asymmetric synthesis, as demonstrated in this study.
Giving gold a new shine: A chiral P,N-bidentate ligand containing a C2-symmetric piperidine ring enabled enantioselective intramolecular cyclopropanation by an α-oxo gold carbene intermediate generated in situ (see scheme; Ad=adamantyl). The ligand design is based on the well-organized triscoordinated gold center in a previously proposed structure of the carbene intermediate in the presence of a P,N-bidentate ligand.
Will you shut the fuck up? We’re trying to watch TV.
“Electric Love” is an animated music video for the television show Bob’s Burgers that features Stephin Merritt and Kenny Mellman singing a love song about inventor Thomas Edison and an elephant named Topsy–which the show alleges Edison had electrocuted, but the actual history of the event is a bit more complicated. The video is part of a series of animated music videos featuring songs from the show being covered by other artists.
The song was originally performed by the characters Mr. Fischoeder (as Edison) and Gayle (as Topsy) with Gene and Tina acting out the voices as part of the third season episode “Topsy”, which aired in the United States on March 10, 2013.
