can I have Apollo trying to play some kind of musical instruments? Piano, trumpet, guitar, violin, whichever. Fail or cool, it’s up to you, I just never really see Apollo with some kind of music instrument
(Apollo, you should be more specific when you are saying “Can I help you with anything?”)
I actually have a headcanon that Apollo can play piano very good and he can sing too. So his “Chords of steel” practice is actually vocal warm up/singing exercises.
Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.
Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.
Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.

This needs to get spread a good bit more.
Normally chemistry is not based on “bangs, fire, and smoke”, if these happen, it usually means something bad.
Chemistry often looks pretty boring, I know. And since the now published pictures were mainly taken when I worked at a company, doing some amino acid chemistry, it may look boring, but be ready for something adorable. Currently I am doing some coumarine chemistry what looks great even under normal light and under UV light.
First of all, if you do not already follow Kristof, whether or not you are a chemistry enthusiast, you are missing out, my friend.
Kristof is right. Any time I hear loud noises or see smoke in the lab, the only things that I think of are “so much panic" and "Is this supposed to happen?!" However, this doesn’t mean that chemistry isn’t exciting. It is, and in a lot of ways too!
The chemistry you see in CSI or Breaking Bad isn’t realistic. At all. It’s okay if watching these shows sparks your interest in chemistry (that’s what CSI: Miami did for me), but just be aware that chemistry is much more than matching fibres in socks to murderers and making explosions.
Chemistry may not seem exciting because most of the time, the exciting parts are things you can’t see. For example, in my own experience, most of my labs are spent waiting for 3 hour reactions, figuring out what the colourless liquid I am holding contains, cleaning glassware, and figuring out how to use lab equipment made in the 90’s that have too many buttons.
I could go on forever about how exciting chemistry is (maybe because I’m a chemistry major and have some bias), but just think about this: you are taking something, and combining it with something else, to make a thing. You are practically a god.
Loud bangs probably mean you just dropped your product on the floor, smoke may mean your product is escaping into the air, and fire probably means your lab is about to burn down, so you have to leave your product behind and evacuate the building.
