The Drama of Science! Really, who can say science is boring when you have scintillating news stories like the one about the renaming of the quixotic and somewhat baffling Ununhexium to the bland and tasteless Livermorium! Livermorium, really? Can't they do better than that? I mean, why would I want MORE liver? I don't even like Liver.
I could do so much better naming elements. I would call one Meganfoxium, for example. That would be cool. Do you think she would call me up if named an element after her? On second thought, HURRY UP AND FIND IT might not like that idea. But still the possibilities are endless and the best they can do is LIVERMORIUM? Sheesh. What about Sharknosebunnium? I like the sound of that one. Or what about auctioning off the naming of an element on E-Bay and giving all the money to some tireless, humanitarian charity deeply embroiled in saving the world, like the MNGCA? That'd be cool. Sigh. Sometimes the world just lacks imagination.
And tell me why the guy in the photo comes up when I search for Livermorium? Is he telling how he discovered Livermorium, by shaking his hands at the speed of light? Or is he just karate chopping some helium and nitrogen?
But I wander. This is a really easy cache, but even then I'll give you a HINT... but only if you promise to tell me in your log what YOU would name an element if got the chance. Deal? If it's not deal, don't read any more. If you read any more you must tell me what you'd name an element, okay? If you don't, I'll send the ice weasels after you. At night. When you're sleeping. Ready? The hint is this: IT'S IN THE SIGNPOST!!! There, you so owe me. Tell me what you would name an element in your log!
Lastly, this cache is part of the Cache vs. Winter series of easy winter hides designed to help people keep streaks alive over the long snowy Minnesota winter. Easy find, near parking, and most definitely winter friendly. Enjoy the quickie!
As always, use caution when caching and stay within your comfort zone. Be careful, and have fun!
