Top Definition
Graphene is an allotrope of carbon in the form of a flat, atomic-scale, hexagonal lattice in which one atom forms each vertex. It can also be considered as an indefinitely large aromatic molecule.

Graphene has many interesting properties. It is about 200 times stronger than steel by weight, conducts heat and electricity with great efficiency and is nearly transparent.

Scientists have theorized about graphene for decades. It is quite likely that graphene was unwittingly produced in small quantities for centuries through the use of pencils and other similar applications of graphite, but it was first measurably produced and isolated in the lab in 2003. Research was informed by existing theoretical descriptions of its composition, structure and properties. High-quality graphene proved to be surprisingly easy to isolate, making more research possible.

Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the University of Manchester won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene."

The global market for graphene is reported to have reached $9 million by 2014 with most sales in the semiconductor, electronics, battery energy and composites industries.
Potential graphene applications include lightweight, thin, flexible, yet durable display screens, electric circuits and solar cells, as well as various medical, chemical and industrial processes enhanced or enabled by the use of new graphene materials.

When someone corrects every single wrong math equation he sees, he/she is a member of the Mathia. The word itself is a combination of Math, and Mafia. They are basically Grammar nazi's, but with math instead of grammar. The word originates from a dutch kid named Jeroen (me), who came up with the word during a math class, and is now trying to spread it across the internet.
Person 1: 1+1=3
Member of the Mathia: Wrong, 1+1=2
Person a: Dude, you don't have to correct evrybody on their math. What are you, a member of the Mathia?
