Elemental annika

i think it may be a sign of something when my blog makes the periodic table of elements. A sign of what, i don't know. But apparently i have a new elemental symbol: Na. It's on the Humbug blogroll which takes the form of a Periodic Table.

Now on the one hand, i should be flattered that i'm to be found where Einsteinium or Fermium might normally be on the real table. Bottom row of the actinide series, which would make me one of the rare earths. That sounds flattering, except Humbug has labelled that row the "obscuroid series," which doesn't sound too good.

There's no indication of my atomic number, so i'm calling "100," because it's such a nice round number.

Scorebard has a pretty cool design going, too. i like the tab navigation and i dig the baseball poetry.

Are you radioactive? Do you occur naturally?

Enquiring minds, and all that.

na = sodium, the basis for all salts..
an alkali metal
atomic number = 11

anna must mix well with halgens and she gives up extra electrons when ever she can..

I want to know what he means in the legend, where he classifies you (and many others) under "Purgatory"!

Actually, 'yote, chloride isn't present in all salts. Any compound formed by the combination of an anion and a cation is, chemically speaking, a salt. They don't have to include chlorides; potassium bromide (KBr) is a salt.

(Full disclosure: I had to look that up. Chemistry was a long time ago. Something about the chloride claim didn't sound right, but it took Google to get me reoriented.)

Definitely use caution when forming a combination with onion and salt.

Chemistry was not my best subject.
