Ouch

I went to a workshop yesterday with PhD students and post-docs from all disciplines. During the usual chit chat I explain what I do – discover new chemical reactions which can be applied in making drugs, materials, etc. – and she replied: I have seen organic chemistry textbooks and they are huge. I thought they had already discovered all the chemical reactions in Germany years ago.

That hurt.
