I have many petty beliefs. My right to judge people’s t-shirts is one that I’ll never let go.
Recently I saw someone wearing a t-shirt with this printed on it (recreated by me):
Underneath that it declared it was, “The Formula For Success.”
That is not a formula. It is a list of elements on the periodic table. A chemical formula looks something like H2O (or exactly like H2O if you’re talking about water) which, “express[es] information about the proportions of atoms that constitute a particular chemical compound, using a single line of chemical element symbols, numbers, and sometimes also other symbols.”
Anyways, if we do pretend that collection of elements is a formula, let’s see what’s in it!
What a stupid way to get the words, “Cash Money,” onto a t-shirt. Hire a graphic designer.
