Do You Get This?

OK, before I tell you what I’m all excited about here, have a look at this picture of a license plate and tell me if you get why I saw it and thought, “I MUST PHOTOGRAPH THIS!!”1:

When I saw this license plate as I was driving up Knight St. today, I got super excited. I may have even yelled, “CHIRAL!!”  And then I immediately thought, ‘that’s a pretty obscure thing to have on one’s license plate. I wonder how many people see that and know what it’s about.’

So here’s my informal, completely unscientific poll: If you saw that license plate while you were driving down the street, would you know what it was about?

You can’t see it in the photo, but this vehicle also had a UBC sticker in its window, so I’m guessing that it belongs to a chemistry prof.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, go here.

  1. for the record, we were safely stopped at a red light when I took the pic []

    What springs to mind is "thalidomide." Do I get a prize?

    Mmm- mirror image. But I think you were anticipating my response to this.
