Are there some people here who understand chemistry? I have a basic problems that I need to have solved, but I can't figure it out myself. Anyone?

Gonna purify %40 Alcoholic mixture. Set doesn't have any thermometer. How to stay below 100 Celcius? I'm thinking of using the least possible fire until the expected percentage of alcohol is received, any more suggestions or ideas?

Prognathism (the extension of the jaw beyond the nose) is a primitive trait. It is found to be more prominent in ALL pre-humans, and has decreased in prominence for 20 million years since we diverged from our proto-simian ancestors. The jaw shape is cause for a skull structure which does not allow for brain expansion due to the placement of cranial musculature. The shortening of the jaw is tied to cranial expansion at several gene sites according to new molecular genetic studies, and prognathic individuals are highly correlated to low intelligence and criminality. The most prognathic species, africans and aborigines, are the least intelligent. The least prognathic are whites and east asians. http://connection.ebscohost.com/c/articles/9710170511/relationships-between-cranial-capacity-prognathism-plio-pleistocene-hominids http://books.google.com/books?id=8ET4GVAJvdAC&pg=PA413&lpg=PA413&dq=prognathism+and+intelligence&source=bl&ots=ekfNx7LJFH&sig=skzvX8973pHWumrbbFJmptZaOkw&hl=en&sa=X&ei=vOL_UsL_KtXDoASwsYCQBg&ved=0CGAQ6AEwCA#v=onepage&q=prognathism%20and%20intelligence&f=false

The Astronomy Picture of the Day

The Cosmic Web of the Tarantula Nebula It is the largest and most complex star forming region in the entire galactic neighborhood. Located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy orbiting our Milky Way galaxy, the region's spidery appearance is responsible for its popular name, the Tarantula nebula. This tarantula, however, is about 1,000 light-years across. Were it placed at the distance of Milky Way's Orion Nebula, only 1,500 light-years distant and the nearest stellar nursery to Earth, it would appear to cover about 30 degrees (60 full moons) on the sky. Intriguing details of the nebula are visible in the above image shown in near true colors. The spindly arms of the Tarantula nebula surround NGC 2070, a star cluster that contains some of the brightest, most massive stars known, visible in blue on the right. Since massive stars live fast and die young, it is not so surprising that the cosmic Tarantula also lies near the site of a close recent supernova.

You are obsessed with proving you are more intelligent than other people, opinionated, can't take any criticism yet are quick to nitpick every insignificant detail, turn every discussion into a squabble and quibble over irrelevant things when everyone else is trying to move on and make some progress. Why do you expect to have a successful career in R&D? Seriously, I have seen people here debating whether picking up a pencil and dropping it is proof that next time you pick up a pencil and let go it will fall. The only thing that you respect are arguments from authority, this might get you through university but once you are out in the real world I can't imagine how you are going to succeed without a well refined internal method of validation. You will constantly be showered with opportunities and meet good reasonable people but none of them will fulfill your impossible standards. Because the only relationship you can tolerate is hierarchical that is the only relationship you will find yourself in, once exhausted by the hucksters telling you what you want to hear you will reach in desperation for the bottom of the corporate ladder. This could still be the start of a decent career, however advancement would require cooperating, discussing and sharing ideas with others as equals, naturally you will fail to shut up, listen, absorb information, learn and commit to the greater goal that the company is spending millions on, you will never be moved to a new department, you will stay as a lab technician or whatever until the contract ends or you find a company willing to pay you slightly more for another isolated limited task, and if you ever find yourself in a leadership role you will be one of those bosses who fail to properly communicate and blame the team for problems that require leadership to solve. That will be the measure of your success as a human being and the extent of your contribution to science.
