Since there's a lot of threads bashing women, I thought I would post a humorous story from my AP chemistry class in high school.
Since it was last day before a holiday break, we got to do a demeaning fun "lab" in groups of four. Our procedures involved mixing granulated sugar, corn syrup, flavoring, and food coloring in a beaker and heating it over a bunsen burner to make a viscous goo. We were then supposed to make lolipops out of that mess. Only one thing went wrong... our goo boiled over and ignited when it drizzled onto the wire gauze and burner. The only male in my group, Brian Smith (I mention his name because he deserves yet more humiliation for being the macho wimp of AP chem) runs across the classroom screaming "Oh my god, its on fire! Mr. Hendly, *delete me*". I turn the gas off at the source and am instructed by Mr. Hendly to set the flaming beaker in the sink using tongs and to put the fire out. That wasn't the worst of it... We made another mixture of goo and started the process over, only it catches on fire again even after turning the burner down. That time I was ready and calmly placed the flaming beaker in the sink while Brian stood cowering behind the fire blanket.
Don't get me wrong - I loved AP chem. I even mastered the art of making perfect smoke rings with a flint lighter.
