    In a recent contest, The Washington Post asked readers to dream up new elements for the Periodic Table. Among the best of the batch:
    Limbaughium Lb
    The heaviest known element. It possesses an ever-expanding mass. Very white. Acidic. Emits heat but no light. Instantly polarizes all elements that come in contact with it. Repels protons and electrons; attracts only morons.
    With a slick appearance and slimy texture, this element undergoes a series of interesting changes when in hot water.
    Canadium Eh
    Similar to Americium, but a little denser. Much more rigid. Often called Boron.
    Innofensium Pc
    Precisely equal numbers of electrons, protons, neutrons, leptons, quarks. Completely inert, utterly useless, but smells like a rose.
    Newtium
    Extreme irritant. Carries a strong negative charge. Does not possess magnetic properties. Can be purchased cheaply.
    Quaylium Vp
    Einsteinium it ain't.
    Budweisium Ps
    Has no taste or smell; is often more...

    Valuable scientific data.

    The following are two proposed additions to the periodic table of elements (from chemistry class):

    Element name: woman

    Symbol: WO

    Atomic weight: (don't even go there)

    Physical properties: Generally round in form. Boils at nothing and may freeze at any time. Melts when treated properly. Very bitter if mishandled.

    Chemical properties: Very active. Highly unstable. Possesses strong affinity with gold, silver, platinum, and precious stones. Volatile when left alone. Able to absorb great amounts of exotic food. Turns slightly green when placed next to a shinier specimen.

    Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for dispersion of wealth. Probably the most powerful income reducing agent known.

    Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands.


    Element name: man

    Symbol: XY

    Atomic weight: (180 +/-50)

    Physical properties: more...

    Activation Energy: The useful quantity of energy available in one cup of coffee.

    Atomic Theory: A mythological explanation of the nature of matter, first proposed by the ancient Greeks, and now thoroughly discredited by modern computer simulation. Attempts to verify the theory by modern computer simulation have failed. Instead, it has been demonstrated repeatedly that computer outputs depend upon the color of the programmer's eyes, or occasionally upon the month of his or her birth. This apparent astrological connection, at last, vindicates the alchemist's view of astrology as the mother of all science.

    Bacon, Roger: An English friar who dabbled in science and made experimentation fashionable. Bacon was the first science popularizer to make it big on the banquet and talk-show circuit, and his books even outsold the fad diets of the period.

    Biological Science: A contradiction in more...

    -TWO NEW ADDITIONS TO THE PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS
    1) Element Name: WOMANIUM
    Symbol: WO
    Atomic Weight: (don't even go there)
    Physical properties: Generally soft and round in form. Boils at nothing
    and may freeze any time. Melts when treated properly. Very bitter if not
    used well. Chemical properties: Very active. Highly unstable. Possesses
    strong affinity with gold, silver, platinum, and precious stones.
    Violent when left alone. Able to absorb great amounts of exotic food.
    Turns slightly green when placed next to a better specimen.
    Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for dispersion of
    wealth. Probably the most powerful income-reducing agent known.
    Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands!
    2) Element Name: MANIUM
    Symbol: XY
    Atomic Weight: (180 +/- 50)
    Physical properties: Solid at room temperature but gets bent out of
    shape easily. Fairly dense and sometimes flaky. Difficult more...

    NEW ELEMENTS ON THE PERIODIC TABLE Element: WOMAN Symbol: Wo Atomic Weight: 120 (more or less) Physical Properties: Generally round in form. Boils at nothing and may freeze anytime. Melts whenever treated properly. Very bitter if not used well. Chemical properties: Very active. Possesses strong affinity to gold, silver, platinum, and precious stones. Violent when left alone. Able to absorb great amount of exotic food. Turns slightly green when placed beside a better specimen. Ages rapidly. Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for disintegration of wealth. Probably the single most powerful income reducing agent known. Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands. Element: MAN Symbol: XY Common Name(s): Varies anywhere from John to! @#$&*! Atomic Weight: 180 +/-100 Physical Properties: Solid at room temperature, but easily gets bent out of shape. Fairly dense and sometimes flaky. Difficult to find a pure sample. Due to rust, aging samples are unable to conduct more...
