Heaviest Element Yet Known to Science Discovered

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California has now identified with certainty the heaviest element known to science. The new element, Pelosium (PL), 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 peons.

Pelosium is inert, and has no charge and no magnetism. Nevertheless, it can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Pelosium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

Pelosium has a normal half-life of 2 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a biennial reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. Pelosium mass will increase over time, since each reorganization will promote many morons to become isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Pelosium becomes Senatorium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Pelosium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

Please leave a comment below. I love hearing from you.

I just found you again... after a computer change where some things were lost. Yesterday I was going through my many little scraps and notes and found your address ...along with Mar. 9th...Rooster (o: I remember the story about you shooting a rooter. If it was anything like the rooster video you have on here I can see why (o:

I'm totally with you...regarding your political views!

Had a great time reading at your posts.

Your picture of the black and white paint...Is that a Gypsy Vanner? They have very full manes like that one.

Yes, that's a Gypsy Vanner, otherwise known as a Gypsy Cob. When I sold the last of my horses a few years ago I told myself I didn't need a horse - until I saw Talon. The whole problem was that I didn't sell my special treeless saddle. Guess I just had to get something to put under it!
