    Of all the chemistry classes I have taken (I am a chemistry major) I enjoyed organic the most by far. It might have been my prof though, he was a bad ass.

    Organic Chemistry is voodoo witchcraft. Sacrificing a chicken at midnight is the *real* Diels-Alder mechanism.

    Organic gave me 3-D imagination. I used to use the balls and sticks, which were permitted on the tests, to find enantiomers and other organic thingies. By the end, I could rotate, shift and move objects in my mind so much better. Made masturbation a lot more interesting.

    ROFL, nice touch with the use of rotation.

    I do like Organic Chem though, my professor rocked.

    i'm curious... is calling it "orgo" or "ochem" a regional thing? i've only known west-coasters who say ochem and east-coasters who say orgo.

    I loved orgo. I don't know if I was just easy compared to biochem that same semester, or the great prof, but it was my favorite class.

    If you actually like thinking and developing problem-solving ability, o-chem is better.

    Biochem fans are the people who think memorizing without understanding the mechanism is going to get them places.

    ummm yea. i just crammed about 50 mechanisms into my brain and twice as many reactions in 14 hours straight more or less, slept 5, and then did 6 more hrs all for one freakin' exam.
    Piece of advice - do not do this unless you're nuts or well, you'll end up nuts :rolleyes:

    Please don't talk to me about liking orgo or I'll vomit.

    we say orgo because every other science course many of us take ends in 'o' (bio, physio, immuno, micro, yada yada)

    Yeah, and that took you like what? 2 seconds to say? Some of us have places to go my friend, we don't have a lifetime to waste on two words

    I'd be happy to call O-chem/Orgo 'the OC'...

    "My class in the OC is so hard"

    "I hate the OC"

    "I wish the OC wasn't so conceptual"

    Orgo was the science class I had the most difficulty with and the one I liked the most.

    I have no idea what this o-chem is that these kids speak of...bah!!!
