I mean, seriously, who the Hell invited Ununoctium to the party anyway? You’re not a REAL element. WHERE’S YOUR PEDIGREE???


Anyway, four new elements just got slotted to the periodic table and that somehow makes me happy!

I’m declaring an element/chemistry/genre .gif party and would like to hear some of your stories about the time you had a chemical/elemental adventure.

I’ll start: Once in junior chemistry class, we were working with acid for the first time. Apparently, I got some on my arm and spent the next 45 minutes washing my arm in the lab stockroom. To this day, I have no idea how the hell it happened. Good times.
