Rage

I have discovered a new depth of frustration and fury. Here's how you attain it. First, you realise that something someone else has made as a curiousity might be useful to you in making some other, truly bizarre and otherwise unattainable curiousity. Then you spend a month painstakingly learning to make all the required bits and pieces, pufifying them and gradually acquiring sufficient quantities to react them on. You then set up the reaction and, after a few days stirring, show by NMR that you have in fact created something wholly new and likely interesting. You carefully extract this miracle substance, getting a lovely, rich amber solution which almost seems to glow with an inner light. You remove the solvent and then, just as you raise it to your eyes to see it naked and clean ...

THE FUCKING REACTION VESSEL IMPLODES IN YOUR HAND, DESTROYING IT ALL!

I am displeased.
