Here's a new scientific element to ponder... Governmentium




Oxford University researchers have discovered the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (symbol = 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 pillocks.




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 to 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganisation 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 reorganisation will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.


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




They have also confirmed that it is found worldwide!!

woody, I put your post forward to my friend (who is a prof) to get his input. This was his reply.








There have been claims to the discovery of new stable elements in the Governmentium series. Two of these are as yet unproven: Hollyroodium and Cardiffium. Westminstrium turns out to have become confused with Brusselium, and a change is expected. Europium, which is real, may prove to be unreal and be replaced with Referendium.


And so the search for the Island of Stability progresses:




"Estimates about the amount of stability on the island are usually around a half-life of minutes or days, with "some optimists" expecting half-lives of millions of years."



Sounds good to me woody (if I could understand it) :-D
