    [Gokul43201] 1:15 pm: Okay folks, let's play: HIDDEN SCIENCE
    [Gokul43201] 1:15 pm: RULES:
    [Gokul43201] 1:15 pm: 1. All answers are fairly common scientific terms (nothing highly specialized)
    [Gokul43201] 1:16 pm: 2. The answer is found hidden (embedded) in the clue
    [Gokul43201] 1:16 pm: 3. The clue additionally tells you something about the answer (example coming up)
    [Gokul43201] 1:16 pm: EXAMPLE: Stop lane turns around the cosmos
    [Gokul43201] 1:17 pm: Answer: PLANET - StoP LANE Turns around the cosmos

    cristo] 1:17 pm: planet
    [Andre] 1:17 pm: ingeneous
    [Gokul43201] 1:17 pm: Does everyone get how that works?
    [Doc Al] 1:17 pm:
    [Doc Al] 1:17 pm: cristo cheated
    [cristo] 1:17 pm: I think Doc's confused
    [Evo] 1:17 pm: cool
    cristo] 1:17 pm:
    [Kurdt] 1:17 pm: yes
    [Doc Al] 1:17 pm: what else is new?
    [Gokul43201] 1:17 pm: What's up Doc?
    [Doc Al] 1:17 pm: I'm ALWAYS confused.
    [Gokul43201] 1:20 pm: 4. Only one guess per person
    [Gokul43201] 1:20 pm: 5. You must guess the longest scientific term hidden in the clue

    [Doc Al] 1:21 pm: no bible codes, I hope
    [Gokul43201] 1:21 pm: 6. The answer must not be any of the words used in the clue or any word directly derived from them
    [Gokul43201] 1:22 pm: e.g., If the clue has the word RENORMALIZED in it, the answer can not be NORMALIZE.

    [cristo] 1:22 pm: ok, so the answer must span at least two words
    [Gokul43201] 1:22 pm: End of rules
    [marlon] 1:22 pm: cristo is intelligent
    [Doc Al] 1:23 pm: I'm not convinced
    [cristo] 1:23 pm: oi!
    [cristo] 1:23 pm: i can tell your sarcasm, marlon
    [Gokul43201] 1:23 pm: Cristo: not necessarily. The answer could be hidden in a single word but have nothing to do with that word
    [cristo] 1:23 pm: oh right, ok
    [Gokul43201] 1:23 pm: For instance, if the clue has the word EMULATE in, the answer may be EMU
    [cristo] 1:24 pm: got it
    [Doc Al] 1:24 pm: or mula
    [Evo] 1:24 pm: ahahaha

    I didn't know that you had asked.

    If my arm isn't better Sunday and we have a quiz, someone else will need to make a transcript.
