Thermodynamics

Diary entry from 2/10/1990
Today in chemistry we began Thermodynamics in which we were told that the statistical implicationsare not going to be taken into account as we were using the macroscopic analysis. This is an obnoxious proposition, it is like spaghetti without Bolognaise. The second law is purely statistical. It is done this way to keep it simple and prevent confusion as the statistical fluctuations only become significant at the microscopic level (below 100000000000000000 particles)

Biology without some understanding of thermodynamics is useless. There are too many people who don't understand chemistry and it sickens me.
