that's ... cute

I stumbled onto this today, while trying to catch up on my ASAPs

The reactions depicted by the arrow on the right had me confused for a second, until I realized that the upper reaction is number 2, and the lower is number 1.

While I've never seen that before, or even considered it, I guess it makes sense since the arrow is going up. I mean why stick with the western convention of reading top to bottom if the arrow is heading up, right?

It makes sense. Sorta. Kinda. Almost.

I think it is about time for the ACS to employ some proof readers and stop relying on the peer review process to catch errors.

Yeah, but that would probably raise the prices the end user had to pay. My understanding is that they are already quite high.
