Immediately I want to say that our actions make us special. It is important to have imagination and knowledge but without action the potential energy dissipates and nothing gets done.
A little over a week ago one of my associates at work argued that someone who cooks crystal meth is not a chemist. Crystal meth is the street name for methamphetamine in crystal form. It is a drug that affects the nervous system, in low does it is used to stay awake and bring on a euphoric feeling. In higher doses the drug can make someone maniac and cause death. Because it is highly addictive and has a recidivism rate similar to crack and cocaine crystal meth along with being made illicit has also created a stigma in North American culture. I belief it was this stigma associated with the drug and those who produce it to make him scoff at me when I said that the man or woman cooking meth was functioning as a chemist.
Cooking meth is a science and when done wrong usually ends in disaster. Let me be clear I am not a fan of illicit drugs or illicit drug manufactures, however for our conversation, when someone cooks crystal meth they are indeed acting as a chemist.

We should strive to be more like Leonardo Da Vinci. Leonardo was painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer.
