The Periodic Table of Comic Books scans comic book pages that have mentioned any of the elements, and they're always looking for a comic that mentions samarium, praseodymium, or seaborgium, to name but a few. Periodic Table affecionados might also want to take The Periodic Table Challenge - dastardly hard.

Well at least I got the 16 elements I am suppose to know to do my job.

if you read how they did that challenge -- they use the old mac program Hypercard! wow, I don't believe it!

If I could count, I'd know where to put gold. As it was, I only got 6.

I've always liked that silly song and had forgotten all about it. If you scroll halfway down this page there's a wav and an mp3 of it. I just love it when people chime in with good links.

73 on the periodic challenge, but that's appalling considering my profession. if my boss finds out, i'm so dumped.
i'm too busy reading mefi to care about the elements.

ooops, i forgot to mention how excellent the first link was, the one about the comic books. even though i'm not at all a comic book fan. nice one, iconomy. although the very first element i looked at, francium, had some terrible mistakes on the comic page (farancium, rubibium... heh!)
