    I swear I thought of doing this on last years exam bt just ruled it out bec it just wasnt worth it

    Haha, I would strongly advise not doing so if you know the correct answer (well, the one "they" want you to know)

    Okay...I really thought this was from The Onion. I hope that people realize he does not speak for God.

    Do you know that for sure?
    I find your lack of bacon disturbing.

    Adding hydrogen (hydrogenation) to veggie oil creates trans fats not saturated fats.. Meaning the hydrogens are added trans (across from each other) instead of cis (on same side of the double bond) like saturated fats are. We all can agree trans fats are horrible for you, CW or primal.


    But nice answer on the butter one. Maybe from a chemical perspective the teacher will agree with you as saturated fats are way more heat stable due to greater van der waals forces between straighter chains (saturated) than crooked chains (unsaturated), hence more thermal energy is required to excite them to vaporization point?

    I thought it was a joke, too. That man needs a muzzle. And bacon.

    This wasn't made clear to us. At all. We didn't learn a thing about trans fats! We just learned that it "wasn't saturated" therefore "better for you" - I thought I had walked into a CW brainwashing ceremony rather than additional chemistry :P

    I was going to put something along the lines of that (albeit a lot more simplistic) but I wasn't too sure of it...chemistry is my worst subject. I find it interesting - I just hate the topics that we do. I'm so sick of electrolysis.

    Going to memorise that for when it's needed.

    I think if you start with Leviticus, you'll find most of the others. Including wearing clothes of two fibers.

    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Well I don't know if your teacher knows if it is beginning chemistry or high school chemistry. Trans vs cis is more of an organic chemistry thing.

    Our bodies can saturate unsaturated fats by adding 2 hydrogens cis across the double bond, but there isn't an industrial process (ie. catalyst) that can add cis, so trans it is. Trans fat can't be processed by the body because it isn't a naturally occurring sort of fat, so it is left in the blood stream. Since trans fat looks like a zig zag, it can easily be stacked on top of each other and form plaque in your arteries and etc. Hence people saying hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats are bad...

    TWO DIFFERENT FIBERS!!!! You should be ashamed.
    No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.
