I congratulate everyone on the day of the chemist!

I congratulate everyone on the day of the chemist!

And we are all chemists a little or a lot.
The word Chemist in Russia has two meanings. Firstly, it is a chemistry teacher at school or university (химик is a man, химичка is a woman), a chemical worker and a scientist. Secondly, a "chemist" is a person who does a little "chemistry". Example. I have to pay tax, but naturally I don’t want to do it. I believe that the state is spending my money incorrectly. I will "cheat" (похимичу - do chemistry) a little and pay less than required by law.

Chemist's Day, October 23rd, is also my birthday. Today I turned exactly 73 years old. It is easy to remember - in SI there are 7 basic units of measurement, and in the CGS - three.

PS By the way, the word mol (моль) in Russian is both the amount of a substance and an insect that flies in the house and can eat a fur coat. This insect does not like chemistry - naphthalene.

PPS But I'm a real chemist. See for example

С днем рождения, Валерий!

 

73?  The Prime of your life!  And a Star number, at that.

 

Oh, and as it's Chemist's Day, 73 is also the atomic number of Tantalum, without which we would not be communicating like this and crunching numbers prodigiously from the comfort of our homes.
