Hydroxide - Iodine Oxide !!

Dihydrogen monoxide.

edit:  I get it by the way, and yes, it's clever.

Hydrogen Hydroxide

Hydroxic acid

Sorry, I could not help it. Any names I am missing?

You named "iodine oxide" as if it were an ionic compound, but both of those atoms form anions (O^2- and I^-), and therefore an ionic compound could not be made. Haha #juniorchem #yesiamanerd

If my junior chem teacher would have heard me say that he would have climbed his very short Chinese self up on a stool and slapped the crap out of me. Go study young buck.

Edit: he named it wrong for sure, but still, that's not good solid chemistry you just put out there.

If anyone ever had cindy Bronson for any of her EEOB classes, I can't tell you how much we heard this joke in class. O cindy. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I understand completely. I took the exam on the 5th. Be sure to pace yourself on the free response. I did not finish because they were longer the the CollegeBoard provided practice.

I would have rather have taken it on the 5th lol but we the free response from your test and I honestly thought it wasn't that bad so hopefully the form B test is about the same

Wait til the future and you get to O chem if you have to take it.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

Very creative way to shout out OHIO, in all-caps no less. Yes, the chemistry is not necessarily correct, but as we see above chemistry has many definitions.

You people, I'm the chemistry Nazi tonight apparently, but the chemistry is fine. The naming needs work, but the compound is all good.
