Something to Know - 27 May

Tom Toles

Okay, got back yesterday evening.   Wonderful cruise, and people and visits with old friends along the way.   Canada is one amazing place with its beautiful landscapes of greens and trees, diversity of peoples, and common sense values.  The whole trip went well, even the TSA experience coming out of SEATAC airport on the way back.   Once off the plane at LAX, a 2 hour and 30 minute UBER ride back to Claremont (lots of cars on the road in LA).  Got in the front door, and then is when things turned not-so-good.  Malfunctioning toilet, broken microwave oven door (how does it break when you've been away for almost three weeks?), and a locked down VISA credit card because of suspected fraud for charging stuff in places we do not normally frequent.  Time to get back to life at home now.   This piece is from Robert Wolfe, Harvey Mudd College Professor Emeritus in Physics from MIT, who is in his element talking about elements:
Subject: Fw: New Element - Heaviest known to science

Subject: New Element - Heaviest known to science

Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element 
yet known to science.
The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant 
neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, 
giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which 
are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can
be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes 
into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would 
normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years.
It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a  portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, 
since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, 
forming isodopes.

This characteristic of morons promotion leads some scientists to  believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a 
critical concentration.
This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.
When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an 
element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it 
has half as many peons but twice as many morons!!
