Aaa-vogadro! Aaa-vogadro! Avogadro! Avogadro! Avo-o-gadro!

Or to put it another way, Happy Mole Day 2009. Mole Day, 23 October or 10/23 if you're American and do dates in a funny way, is respectfully dedicated by the chemistry community to Avogadro's number 6.02 x 10^23. Strictly I should have posted between 6.02 am and 6.02 pm, but it will still be in that time frame over the whole american continent so my conscience is pretty clear.

OK, so show the Mole some respect! Also love:
