Last semester, I took a laboratory subject which is required for all Environmental Engineering students. Because it would add more stress if I didn't force ourselves to have a good time, and because they're beautiful, I (along with my groupmate) 'played' with the solution preparation a bit. We put the higher dye concentration dropwise to water in preparing lower dye concentrations, thus letting us capture the dye's slow movement of mixing with distilled water.

All UV-Vis users create waste after reading their samples, and most of them (really, the undergrads. I KNOW their samples, thus I now their wastes) leave their wastes near the equipment. After some time, I noticed that there's an icky smell in that corner where they are, and that there were molds growing on top of them. I ignored the smell and took pictures of these icky beauties.
Pretty cool, right? :)
