I think any chemist on here would be disgusted, embarrassed, and ashamed to ever make a statement to the effect,
"We have no idea how to run an analysis, because even though the sample preparation protocols are published all over the Web and available in minutes to a Google search performed by a Mongoloid Idiot, the most basic primary step in an analysis is just so far beyond us that we are helpless. We have no clue where to begin, because we did not particulary like Analtyic Chem - it was so tedious, and interfered with our drinking.
We were able to land these jobs, somehow, and now, it's all going to fall down."
