Well if the volumetric flasks don't convince them, the hot sheila on the HPLC will! That's right my friends, I'm now the fresh face of chemistry! Go check out our uni's chemistry website (http://www.chem.canterbury.ac.nz/) and you shall see just how cool chemistry is! I'm ready for my champagne and cocaine now - the heady heights of the modelling world must be going to my head!
(Please note, there is no way that any chemistrician would ever be seen dead in such a clean lab coat under normal circumstances - it even has creases down the sleeves!)
