But you know, that's cool, new elements. I suppose the IUPAC knows what they're talking about and I should probably just take their word for it. After all, they're not the International Union of Explaining Science to Me.
|Speaking of, why haven't I been assigned my own team of scientists whose |
sole job is to explain science to me? Seems like kind of an oversight.
|Above: Iron as represented by Fe, |
because shut up, that's why.
Anyway, the important thing to note here is that these elements finally fill out the seventh row of the periodic table which I gather is kind of big deal. For some reason. Probably gambling related, because. You know, that team of scientists who explain things to me would come in pretty hand right about now.
