Trivia learnt in Chemistry tutoring

Learnt some fun trivia in Chemistry tutoring today:

People in poorer countries didn't jump on Coke as much as people in richer countries because they were taught to not drink anything that's not colourless. Coke, being brown, must have seemed a little suspicious. So they drink a lot of sprite and lemonade instead.

The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland was a parody of people who suffered from mercury poisoning from the mercury used to soften beaver furs used to make felt hats, which made people go sort of loopy.

That's all folks, I will try to go to sleep now.

Exam was not as stressful as I thought

This is what I did with my time on the train. Very rough, it started with swirly patterns and turned into this. I love the thing on Sketchbook Express on the iPad where you can turn and resize the layer with two fingers.

This exam period wasn't as stressful as I expected, maybe because Chemistry and Physics were both pracs, and now I'm hoping I didn't jinx it. One more exam left, and three days (really only two, but) to study for it. I'll be doing all the past papers for maths extension 1. Then I'll be doing an essay and two assignments for English, fun!
