From Day one till now, in my diversified working enviroment, there have been colleages from: the US, Russia, Congo, India, Taiwan, Korea, Bogaria, Iserale, Germany, Mongolia, France, Japan, Argentina, and Germany, etc. Different languages in morning greetings are floating around. Science disciplines are largely varied all over also: chemistry, physics, molecular biology, enzymology, spectroscopy, software engineering, database engineering, or surface science, and accounting.

I had a joke posted on the board and it has been there for ever: 
A physicist, biologist and a chemist were going to the ocean for the first time.

The physicist saw the ocean and was fascinated by the waves. He said he wanted to do some research on the fluid dynamics of the waves and walked into the ocean. Obviously he was drowned and never returned.

The biologist said he wanted to do research on the flora and fauna inside the ocean and walked inside the ocean. He too, never returned.

The chemist waited for a long time and afterwards, wrote the observation, "The physicist and the biologist are soluble in ocean water".
So we chemists are dumb honest people.
