Carbon dating.


Recently, I've been reading a lot of books on evolution, and carbon dating is one topic that occurs every now and then. So influenced have I been by the process that I had to put it down in some form. Here goes:


BTW, the tagline for it is: I feel I've known you for a million years!!!

:)) Hydrocarbon-dating. That IS a first. :]

Instead of the benzene-ring, what if you'd gone with the sp3 bonding structure?

Sandeeep, rekha - thanks!

Mithun, I wanted to - I wanted to draw diamonds :) But this seems to be the first image that gets in people's heads when they hear Carbon - so I went with it. (It takes me atleast a minute to re-realize that diamonds _are_ made of Carbon!)

Gops, the drawing is excellent. BTW, who's sitting with you at the table?

The LOVE....
I have come out of the closet for you, oh Carbon, we are not postive or negative ions - our bond is covalent

The PASSION...
We sparkle together - diamonds are forever

The HEARTBREAK...
Half my life I knew you as Carbon - Now you are Nitrogen
