Eight new elements have been discovered, but only three have become official through the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry or IUPAC for short like when you’re bringing it up at dinner parties or say in blog posts.
Those three newbie elements are Darmstadtium, Roentgenium and Copernicium.
Also known as BORINGIUM.
So I’ve decided to name the other five. FOR SCIENCE.
1. Awesomeium because the 80s are NEVER GOING AWAY.
2. Element because some element has got to be the guy named Guy with the dog named Dog and the cat named ironically, Jim.
3b. 3a is not ironic at all although Madisoninum would be super popular.
4. I thought I’d auction off this one on ebay. Ebayium until we get a highest bidder.
5. ALEXIUM because… DUH, fame and fortune is why I started blogging.
Why yes, the Noble Prize WOULD be a nice way to thank me.
By the way, these new elements are man-made, which I’m pretty sure this means Iron Man is right around the corner.
This is science news at its BESTIUM.
Seriously, I’ve been talkium like this all dayium. I’m speakium the Nerd Pig Latinium.
I’m a walking tableium of elements. Seriouslyium, I have a shirt with the pre-Darmstadtium/Roentgenium/Copernicium.
And the radioactive elements? Glow-in-the-dark.
