New addition to the periodic table of chemical elements:

Element Name: MAN
Symbol: XY
Atomic Weight: 180+

Physical Properties:

Solid at room temperature but gets bent out of shape easily.

Fairly dense and sometimes flaky.

Difficult to find a pure sample.

Due to rust, aging samples are unable to conduct electricity as easily as young samples.

Chemical Properties:

Attempts to bond with WO any chance it can get. Also tends to form strong bonds with itself.

Becomes explosive when mixed with KID (Element: Child) for prolonged periods of time.

Neutralizes by saturating with alcohol.

Usage:

None known.

Possibly a good methane source. Good specimens are able to produce large quantities on command.

Caution: In the absence of WO, this element rapidly decomposes and begins to smell.

Element WO:

Often utterly inert, unless in the presence of alcohol, in which case it can exhibit base characteristics. If exposed to eostrogen, it can be volatile, if not totally unpredictable. It is known to be difficult to bond with, and will usually only do so under elaborate (and often irreproducible) conditions. When, however, it does bond, it can be very difficult to eradicate, with a tendency to linger around other elements long after rigorous extraction processes have been performed. It's only known use is that of a temporary charge acceptor, although even in this context it's often debatable as to whether it's worth the effort. [Wink]

While we're on the topic of chemistry...

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
