OK, so humour me...

The reason I caught my "methylethylamine" mistake (and then wracked my drug-addled brain for the right name) is that there's no such thing. That's a bad name for
propylamine. So I'm driving home and I think, well, propylamine could be 1- or 2-propyl amine. So then I think, pheylethylamine could really be 1- or 2- phenyl-
ethylamine (though I may be committing a nomenclature error here, too). Anyway, phenylethylamine ought to have two isomers where they phenyl and amino group are
either on the same carbon of the ethyl part or not. So I figure one is the love molecule and the other is, what, a hallucinogenic aphrodisiac or something?

I'm sorry, wearies, but where else could I ask?
