It's a child's toy! It's a molecule! It's a child's toy *and* a molecule! Yup, this is a single molecule of carbon that's not only large enough to see with the naked eye, but large enough to play volleyball with. If it were any bigger, hippies would cut it in half to make houses out of it.

References

  • These refer to the carbon molecules called buckyballs or fullerenes, which were named after Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller, the inventor of the geodesic dome. The picture is similar to the shape of the atoms of carbon that are connected in a similar pattern.
  • The line "If it were any bigger, hippies would cut it in half to make houses out of it" is probably a reference to the common practice of housing ecological and artificial biome projects within geodesic domes, such as the Eden Project.
