As a scientist myself, and after years of pulling my hair out over various projects (as well as some of the conversations I have with my twin boys) there are times I wish that I wasn’t “thinning on top”. This video uses the holiday season to help encourage those of us who are “follicly challenged” to realize that science will give us the solution. This movie is a collaboration between my good friend Professor Alex Tropsha from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill (http://pharmacy.unc.edu/Directory/tropsha) and myself (Antony Williams, http://www.chemconnector.com/) where we did a few takes …literally 8 different shots only, in less than an hour. With a little bit of waxing lyrical to an old classical Christmas Song, and a quick self-training course in Microsoft Movie Maker (BRILLIANT SOFTWARE) I threw this together in about 2 hours. Enjoy! And there is hope for all us who, because of the excess heat from our skulls from “all that thinking”, are evaporating the follicles.
Please do note that Alex is modeling a ChemSpider SyntheticPages labcoat. Want to win one? Then you need to write a few articles here: http://cssp.chemspider.com/
I would like to acknowledge my mother for giving me a singing voice that sounds like I am gargling broken glass.
