Happy Mole Day!

Today is (or was, until 6:02 pm) National Mole Day -- how did you celebrate? While not as much fun as National Talk Like a Pirate Day, National Mole Day recognizes the importance of moles, which provide better life through chemistry.

Not being scientifically minded, I was previously unaware of moles' existence (until today) and am still unable to comprehend their importance now. I am, however, relieved to know that someone understands moles. (Jim, maybe you can explain them to me sometime).

I sang the mole song (a mole is a unit, have you heard it's six times ten to the... twentythird. that's a six with twentythree zeros at the end, much too big a number to comprehend). Jim responded the way he usually does when I break into song.

Bethany-That's catchy and I'd probably not be able to get it out of my head if I knew the tune. Is it sung to the tune of another song?

You can hear the Mole Day theme song by following this link: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6355951. It's sung by its writer at the end of the story (it's kind of catchy).
