Bonding

Via Instapundit, here's a cool set of before and after pictures as a chemical reaction occurs on a surface so that you can actually see how the bonds in the molecule have rearranged.

This is much more impressive than the day's activities around here. However, I did manage to replace three outlets that were in questionable condition (one GFCI, two regular), we got new sandals for Katie and a dress for Julie, and we did five loads of laundry, along with picking up most of the things that had migrated to the floor with the help of Katie and Julie (both getting them there originally and picking them up).

It was, however, progress. :)
