Which Functional Group Would You Be?

April 16 = O Chem test
In celebration of all that is O chem I decided to pick a functional group I'd like to be in another lifetime. It's an interesting thought.
If I had to choose, I'd definitely have to go with the haloalkane.
Not only is it holy - HALOalkane (it has a halo) - but tetrafluoroethane (a haloalkane found in air canisters) boils below room temperature and looks bloody AWESOME.
It looks like a mini whirlpool.
A mini whirlpool boiling over with a whole lot of AWESOME-NESS! Sounds like me lol.
Now it's your turn...which functional group would you be?
