This week, our third in the Boil's Laws comic series. If you sometimes feel a disconnect between management and engineering, this one's for you.
Welcome to the second comic in the Boil's Laws comic strip series, which first ran here in 2010. It's entitled The Piping and Instrumentation Diagram.
We revisit the very popular comic Boil's Laws, which is devoted to chemical engineering and launched here back in 2010.
Kick back with a little chemical engineering humor—we think you'll recognize yourself and the entire chemical engineering undergrad experience!
The epic – now mythical – rivalry between Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison is relived blow by blow in this short rap video.
After Thanksgiving dinner, most blame a compound in turkey known as tryptophan for making them drowsy, but this short video is here to debunk that canard!
Leave it to the Onion to combine two serious topics to create something outlandish and silly. Check out this hilarious fake news segment on illegal uranium enrichment by high school students.
Welcome to the 12th comic in the Boil's Laws comic strip series, brought to ChEnected by artist and chemical engineer Rich Byrnes. Here's one for all of you in process safety!
Welcome to the 10th comic in the Boil's Laws series, brought to ChEnected by artist and chemical engineer Rich Byrnes. This time: ChE's and spelling!
Technically, a Pi Day song should never end, but that would crash YouTube. And probably bore most listeners. So the music video in the right hand window will get you started and then you can hum it as long as you want.
Welcome to the ninth comic in the Boil's Laws comic strip series. So, how do chemical engineers and chemists see the world differently? Click and find out.
Cubelets are a robotic construction kit according to the company that created them, Modular Robotics. Modular Robotics has put together a good video (viewable in the panel to the right) explaining how cubelets work.
What's curious about the video is that Modular Robotics uses a "Dutch Mountain Man" to explain cubelets. It's quite well done, actually, and somewhat funny. But I started to think about how peculiar this was, mostly because there are no mountains in the Netherlands to speak of.
For a humorous look at the undergraduate decisions that every chemical engineer makes, check out this tongue-in-cheek "investigative report" on why student students choose chemical engineering as a major. You can watch the video in the panel to the right.
Asked to explain at Career Day what engineers do, Dilbert takes a cynical approach—much to the annoyance of the teacher.
Sometimes it seems like an intern just can't get ahead...especially with an empire-builder of a boss!
Welcome to the eighth comic in the Boil's Laws comic strip series, brought to ChEnected by artist and chemical engineer Rich Byrnes.
It's back! Welcome to the seventh comic in the Boil's Laws comic strip series, brought to ChEnected by artist and chemical engineer Rich Byrnes.
This week we were introduced to this Lady Gaga parody, thanks to the people at NPR's Science Friday and Talking Science. According to Talking Science, the star of the video is Josephine Coburn, a freshman from from UC Berkeley. As Lady Gallium, she transforms Lady Gaga's song "Telephone" into a great lesson on genetics, titled "Chromosome."

As a parody on engineer/manager communication pitfalls that impact engineering productivity of electronics chip design, this video presents a humorous rendition of what goes on at "WonderChips".
Two professional engineers illustrate the proper care and practical benefits of cats. None of the cats, humans, or engineers were mistreated in the making of this film.
Take a look at this great cartoon from the New Yorker and then tell us...
