There’s a new matchmaker website and service making the rounds of cable TV. Chemistry.com (nope, no hyperlink) purports to match more people with their "soulmates" than eHarmony.com.
Of course, when we saw this, Laura was outraged. She couldn’t believe that the American Chemical Society hadn’t snapped up the chemistry.com domain name. This led to a further observation. People who hit it off well are said to have good "chemistry." Why don’t we say that they have good "biology?" Or physics or geology, for that matter? I guess the last two are too far afield, and biology is a bit too explicit. So, we are left with "chemistry."
