From: Jason
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

Billclintium  Bc
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.

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 indistinguishable from water.

Cabmium  Cb
Found in abundance, except when needed. Exists in two states, in
motion and at rest. When in motion, it cannot be stopped, no matter
what you do. Cabmium has a charge associated with it. The charge is
variable, and scientists have not determined the formula for
calculating it.

Politicium  Po
Contains a great deal of gas. Similar to radon in that it can reach
lethal concentrations in the House.

Congress Cg
Atomic number 525. Can never be found in a solution.

Snot  Sn
Bonds forever with corduroy.

From: Blandford
Goldsmitium Rf
Trace amounts found all over country, but not in Europe. Toxic.

From: Vincent Naydenov <VNaydeno#NoSpam.NRCan.gc.ca>
Lewenskium Mo
Bonds extremely well with Billclintium; inspite its effords, can never
get Billclintium to secrete.

                 though some isotopes can be as short as 4 inches.
Discoverer     : Eve
Occurance      : Found following duel element Wo, often in high
                 concentration near a perfect Wo specimen.

Physical properties :
1) Obnoxious when mixed with C*H*-OH  (any alcohol).
2) Tends to fall into very low energy state directly after reaction with Wo
   (Snore ... zzzzz).
3) Gains considerable mass as specimen ages, loses reactive nature.
4) Rarely found in pure form after 14th year.
5) Often damaged as a direct result of unlucky reaction with polluted form of
   the Wo commom ore.
6) Tarnishes easily. Needs constant polishing and attention
7) Crusty exterior but may be soft underneath.
8) Naturally found in the crude state but may be purified
9) Simple in structure.
10)Often found in the gaseous state.
11)Spontaneous polarity changes relative to surrounding specimens.

Chemical properties :
1) All forms desire reaction with Wo, even when no further reaction is
2) May react with several Wo isotopes in short period under extremely
   favorable conditions.
3) Usually willing to react with what ever is available.
4) Reaction Rates range from aborted/non-existant to Pre-interaction effects
   (which tend to turn the specimen bright red.
5) Reaction styles vary from extremely slow, calm and wet to violent/bloody.
6) Great affinity for fatty substances.
7) May react violently under pressure.
8) Low boiling point, high melting point.
9) Attraction to large quantities of iron.
10)Poorly bonds with other substances.
11)Pure substances are rarely found except when covalently bonded.

Storage : Best results apparently near 18 for high reaction rate,
          25-35 for favorable reaction style.

Uses    : Heavy boxes, top shelves, long walks late at night,
          general repairs, free dinners for Wo...

Tests   :
1) Pure specimen will rarely reveal purity, while reacted
   specimens broadcast information on many wavelengths.
2) Appearance greatly improves when placed in a sports car.
3) Easily titrates to yellow under stress.
4) Never true blue.

Caution : Tends to react extremely violently when other Man interferes with
          reaction to a particular Wo specimen.  Otherwise very maleable
          under correct conditions.

Atomic Weight : Accepted as 59, but known to vary 50-88.
Discoverer    : Adam
Occurance     :  Copious quantities in all Urban areas,
                 with slighlty lower concentrations in
                 Suburban and Rural areas. Subject to
                 seasonal fluctuations.

Physical Properties

1) Surface usually covered with sticks painted film.
2) Boils at nothing, freezes without reason.
3) Melts if given special treatment.
4) Bitter if used incorrectly. Can cause headaches. Handle with care!
5) Found in various states; ranging from virgin metal to common ore.
6) Yields to pressure applied to correct points.
7) Undergoes inpredicatable spontaneous dehydrolyses (weeps).

Chemical Properties :
1) Has great affinity for Gold, Silver, Platinum and many of the Precious
2) Absorbs great quantities of expensive substances.
3) May explode spontaneously if left alone on dates.
4) Insoluble in liquids, but there is increased activity when saturated in
   alcohol to a certain point.
5) Repels cheap material. Neutral to common sense.
6) Most powerful money reducing agent known to Man.

 Uses    : Highly ornamental, especially in sports cars.
           Can greatly improve relaxation levels.
           Can warm and comfort under some circumstances.
           Can cool things down when it's too hot.

 Tests   : Pure specimen turns rosy pink when discovered
           in natural state.
           Turns green when placed beside a better

 Caution : 1) Highly dangerous except in experienced
              hands. Use extreme care when handling.

                    Hazardous Materials Data Sheet : MAN

  Analysis:	    	Has been going on for many years. No results yet
  IMDG Code:    	Class 5, poss. 5105
  Element:          Man
  Symbol:           Bd (From the Latin 'Beerus Drinkus')
  Discoverer:       Eve

From: "John Gifford" <jgpotamus#NoSpam.hotmail.com>

Tabloidium Recent research into certain improbable, not to say implausible
events has forced the development of an explanation involving the existence
of a previously unknown element.

Research into the properties of the minerals maxwellite and murdochite has
led to the conclusion that these can only be explained by the existence of
a previously unknown element with some very curious qualities:

* This hypothetical substance appears to dramatically increase the
  intensity of any reaction it comes into contact with, sometimes to the
  extent of causing unpredictable explosions.
* If stimulated by a changing environment it fluoresces "negative
  light" spreading darkness all around itself.
* All mathematics concerning this substance involve the lowest common
  denominator to an unfeasible degree.

* The substance may be narcotic as exposed humans tend to adopt behaviours
  that are either actually or apparently (There is often confusion as to
  which.) socially unacceptable.

This element has been tentatively christened "Tabloidium" and efforts
are proceeding to fit it into the established periodic table without, at
present any great success. One group of the research team feels that
Tabloidium may be akin to the rare earth’s but with a common
touch. However, a larger group suggests the creation of an entirely new
group of elements, the "Ignoble gases" probably for want of a better

Sources of Tabloidium

It is becoming apparent that Tabloidium is not actually scarce and it is
remarkable that something so common could remain unnoticed for so long. It
has been suggested that the elements almost complete lack of substance
enabled it to escape the notice of those capable of rational thought until
growing ubiquity thrust it upon the attention of the scientific community.

The first major deposit to exploit the world (Another curious reversal.)
was a large, near spherical lode of maxwellite believed to originate
somewhere in central Europe. This remained the main source of Tabloidium in
Britain until mismanagement led to a near melt-down. Disaster was only
prevented by copious aqueous flooding leaving the deposit drowned to this
day and the consequences of these regrettable events are still felt by
those unfortunate enough to have been involved.

Tabloidium is now chiefly sourced from a deposit of murdochite of
antipodean origin. This source has the advantage that its refractory nature
makes total melt-down unlikely. The disadvantage is that the integrity of
the material (In the physical rather than the moral sense) makes it
extremely difficult to separate out the toxic by-products present with
tragic results in a number of cases.

You might need to be a Brit for some of this.
