New Scientific Discovery

The heaviest element known to science

The CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element is Governmentium ( Gv ).

It 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 lefton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons or protons, 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 normally taking less than a second to take from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay but instead undergoes a reorganization 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 reorganization 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 critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium , an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons. All of the money is consumed in the exchange, and no other by products are produced.

All that being said, here’s your Weekend Open Thread™!

Senator Sherrod Brown’s campaign issued a new attack ad Friday against his rival, Republican Josh Mandel. In it, the Ohio Democrat accuses Mandel of using the “big lie” strategy in his campaign. The term “big lie” was coined by Adolf Hitler and is commonly associated with Nazi propaganda. Mandel is Jewish. The ad states: “Josh Mandel: He has become the… Read more »

Sorry for being off topic but as a long time LC, I need help. My ultra conservative cousin, Jonathan Schmidt was KIA Sept 1. He was special ops, spoke all the ME languages and loved this country. He died at 28 doing what he loved and for what he loved…this country. In the midst of trying to help and contain… Read more »

Yeah, an Aussie forum. CSIRO is an Australian scientific research body :em07:

If anyone’s interested, I’ll be on CNN again tonight in the 6pm hour.

They still haven’t sent me a link, and I’m assuming they will do so after it airs again tonight.

Great write up – go read C Northcote Parkinson (Parkinsons Law – it is a book) for the in depth analysis. Written~70 years ago but still true.

They’re re-airing last night’s story on women bloggers and what they want out of this year’s election. The other woman was this commie cunt who wants birth control! :em05:

It will re-air on the Situation Room tonight in the 6pm hour and then hopefully I’ll be able to post a link!

“America does not need four more years of an in-over-his-head whiner; a petulant egomaniac who does not seem to understand the most basic of economic principles and who is a lousy negotiator to boot.” Our commander in chief has demonstrated time and again that he cannot work with opposition, that he is unable to see issues from others’ point of… Read more »

That’s an oldie and a goodie. That element was originally called Administratium. It has two mutations: Fuckoffium, and the union isotope, Luddinium. These came into being through transmutation of an anti-material element called Ignorium which is without mass and formless, yet infects all institutions as a cultural contagion.

The Charlotte fiasco was a less violent version of the fiasco in Chicago in 1968, except the lunacy was now inside the venue, not outside.

IBD Editorials The Terrifying Line in Obama’s Speech That Everyone Missed His Agenda: President Obama’s convention speech got rough reviews, and rightly so. He offered little but tired bromides and recycled promises. But critics overlooked one promise that will guarantee an even bleaker future. There was plenty to dislike in Obama’s speech. The language was flat, his delivery languid. The… Read more »

Both Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama began their adult lives with a leg up on the rest of America. They attended elite schools: Michelle went to Whitney Young, the public magnet school for Chicago’s upper class, while Barack attended Punahou, the private prep school for the top stratum of Hawaiian society. They were accepted to Ivy League schools despite undistinguished… Read more »
