    Periodic table gets a new element with new number but it doesn't have a name yet. I wonder which name it'll have. Whatever it is, I hope they don't mess up with the spelling and confuse us again the way they did with aluminium/aluminum. :lol:

    Maybe it'll be largasium?

    What about obesium? It sounds less...sexual. :cute:

    Right now it's least it's on the right -ium track. :D

    The professor has been working on this for more than 30 years, you'd think he'd have found a name already in the process.

    That'd be cool if they named it unuptanium. I always liked that name from the movie The Core.

    I think it should be called Colbertium, pronounced "Cole-barium".

    It would be hilarious. :lol:

    No kidding. I'm surprised he hasn't already petitioned to have this done. It'd really solidify his place in history! :lol:

    On my periodic table I've blacked out every element without the common courtesy to stick around for at least a good minute to say hello, prior to decaying. Or, at least, that's what I would do if I had a periodic table and knew which elements those were.
