    I do not know what exactly I was working on back then as a child, but the following are the answers to the complex formula I found in the old notebook from my childhood.

    C8H2O, 2C4H10S and CN8H2n+4

    Answers to what question?

    https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/85958645

    I rather like the first one. Although all the carbon-carbon bond angles apart from those at 4 and 7 are obviously strained, Hückel's Rule would predict that this ring should be aromatic! Which might help a bit to offset the resulting instability. Though perhaps not enough to make it stable.

    I presume nobody has actually made this molecule, have they?

    From research using the formula I have found out that I was looking into or working with Butane-2-thiol.

    Ah, so my second link should have been this one instead: https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/2-Butanethiol

    And this is the moment where you really should answer this:
