    PROTIP: Loud, keep your speakers in check. Mixing sodium and water causes a violent chemical reaction (my favorite kind). So what happens when you try to skip a pound disk of sodium across a river? EXPLOSIVE MAGIC. Like a wizard with diarrhea. The sodium disk doesn't re... / Continue →

    This is a simple way to help kids (or adults -- don't act like you know where bismuth is!) learn the periodic table: by turning it into a classic game of Battleship. Basically you just print out and laminate four copies of the periodic table, then play like a regular game of B... / Continue →

    The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) has announced that elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 will be added to the periodic table, completing the seventh row of the table in what was probably the most exciting game of bingo for the scientists who discovered th... / Continue →

    This is a list of the sixteen most expensive substances in the world (above, LSD). Is it accurate? No clue, do I look like a fact-checker to you? I still believe in f***ing chemtrails. I'm joking, and I judge anybody who does. # 16 - Saffron - $11/gram # 15 - Gold - $56... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for the Science channel's 'Through the Wormhole' featuring Morgan Freeman (who also hosts the show) talking on helium. Don't even act like you haven't waiting your whole life to hear what this sounds like. Now I can die happy. Hopefully in my sleep, but ... / Continue →

    These are the glow-in-the-dark radioactive element soaps made and sold by scientific supply company United Nuclear. You can buy them separately for $7.50 apiece or get all three for $19. You should buy one and scrub your privates with it real good then ask your girlfriend if... / Continue →

    Because nobody's ever happy with the way things are now, scientists are hard at work trying to create new elements. God willing, these new elements will provide the key to powering the jetpacks of tomorrow so we can all say goodbye to land-based travel and say hello to crashin... / Continue →

    This is a video of a drop of liquid mercury reacting to different audio frequencies. Sometimes it makes a blob, sometimes it makes a doughnut, and sometimes a starfish. But it ALWAYS makes its friends feel welcome and wanted because that's what good friends do, unlike mine wh... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE but follow the link back for an even bigger one (or to buy a poster). This is the Periodic Table of Middle Earth created by Emil Johansson as part of the LOTRProject (links to full-size version). It features a bunch of characters from Lord of the Rin... / Continue →

    This is the periodic table of Minecraft made by DeviantARTist egeres. Is it accurate? No clue, I don't play too many sandbox games because the last one I played was "hunt for buried treasure" at daycare and I dug up a sand-coated cat turd. I know I've talked about it before,... / Continue →

    Zero chemicals, zero fun -- just ask my brain. The Chemistry 60 educational lab kit comes with a bunch of crap/garbage to perform '60 Fun Activities With No Chemicals', making it only slightly funner than an ant farm with no ants and nowhere near as fun as a Physics kit with n... / Continue →

    Gallium (Ga, atomic #31 between zinc and germanium) is a silvery metallic metal not found elementally in nature. But that's not what's important, what's important is it melts just a little above room temperature (~86°F, 30°C). So you can mold it into whatever you want (but ... / Continue →

    They should really teach the elements song in school. Then maybe today's youth wouldn't be so stupid. No lie, I asked a kid at the mall yesterday to go in and buy me a novelty shirt from Hot Topik what his favorite element was, and you know what he said? Plastic. F***ing pl... / Continue →

    See-through metal, yo. What's next, opaque gas? "Whoa GW, you've got a mysterious brown aura about you. Also *choking* -- why's it smell like somebody died in here?" IT WAS THE DOG, I SWEAR! Stronger than glass, various military and commercial applications for this remarka... / Continue →

    Note: Full size version of the table Hr (that's the elemental symbol for Here!). Since everybody seems to have a raging Jedi boner over the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, here's the periodic table of its elements. You know, in case you were curious what kind of ... / Continue →

    That's right folks, the periodic table is getting another new addition to the family. And apparently these super-heavy elements they're creating in the lab are getting stabler and stabler as atomic weight increases. Which gives me hope Geekologieum won't fly off the handle if... / Continue →

    This is a $16 elemental bacon shirt. It spells 'BaCoN' through the clever placement of three periodic elements: barium, cobalt and nitrogen. And I think we can all agree: bacon would be a lot less popular if it actually were barium, cobolt and nitrogen. And not just because ... / Continue →

    This is the world's smallest snowman (at 0.01mm), not including the one I just made to beat it. Mine is a tenth the size and has more detail including a real carrot nose. Pfft, science -- science ain't got shit on magic! Back me up, Frosty. ...this minuscule model -- about ... / Continue →

    Sadly, it's not actually a periodic table OF cupcakes like I may have falsely advertised. Instead, it's a periodic table MADE with cupcakes. AAAAAHH I WOULD STILL EAT THEM INDISCRIMINATELY! Starting with lithium. This periodic table of cupcakes is for a chemistry nerd's bir... / Continue →

    This is the periodic table of picnic-ery. I like how the makers went the extra mile and even shaped the table correctly. Because if I'd have made it it would have just been a rectangle. On fire. I dine fiery al fresco! Table of Elements: Get Some Chemistry In Your Next B... / Continue →
