When watching TV, I admit I do that quite a lot, it is almost impossible not to get exposed to some kind of fictional depiction of chemistry or sciences in chemistry. Playing computer games is probably another factor. As a consequence, there will always be some questions spawned about the possibility of this and that. I personally think that is a good thing, as it allows chemistry to infiltrate popular culture and raises awareness and maybe eventually lead to a place where people don't raise their eyebrows in disbelieve when I tell them I am a chemist.
I think one of the main contributors is the TV series Breaking Bad, which coincidentally has its own tag on our site. There was even a meta discussion on this: Can I ask Breaking Bad questions?
In the last couple of days similar questions arose, which were not quite as well-received. Maybe also due to the fact, that they were a little misleading, but that shall not be the topic here. (Is so called "Polymerized LiNb (Lithium Niobocene)" a possible compound?, What are the effects of Lithium Dioxide on the body?)
I think those questions are well within our scope and when asked properly, they can contribute quite a lot to general knowledge and in the worst case scenario we can at least debunk some TV myths. I'd like to start a discussion here about if we would want to have a new tag for that. It seems rather unfair that one TV show gets one, while others don't. Since this is already a meta tag that hardly contributes to the classification of questions, I don't want to have tags for different shows. I'd rather have a more general approach (suggestions welcome) or the removal of breaking-bad.
