Silly (Former) Chemistry Nerd Questions
 
Back when I was in college, I used to study this stuff, but I've forgotten...

1. CaSO4 = chalk = wrong?!
2. "Silicon and oxygen make concrete, bricks, and glass..." Glass? Really? How?
3. Is it really true that more than half our our body is OXYGEN, not CARBON?

Thanks for the info (and not laughing at me).

Having the minor variant of Thalassaemia, I'm prone to bouts of Iron deficiency - I could do with that Tshirt when there's no steak around :D
