I Want: This Periodic Coffee Table

August 5, 2008


This $8,550 Periodic Coffee Table features actual samples of all 92 naturally occurring elements.

By embedding all element samples in clear acrylic, they are beautifully presented and also protected from tarnishing. This format also helps to addresses health and safety issues, as all potentially toxic or corrosive substances are permanently encased in a thick layer of robust resin. Argon gas and mineral oil is further used to ampoule reactive samples and preserve their freshly cut appearance.

Sweet, but back when I went to school there were only a few elements: earth, wind, water, fire, and aether (which I always felt was a bullshit element to begin with). Anyways, I failed a test once because I wrote rain, sleet, snow, hail and tornadoes. I demanded partial credit, but my professor refused. So you know what I did? I got elemental on his ass. Specifically, I set his car on fire.

Thanks Aaron, now lets order a whole bunch and then chisel the elements out and make a bomb. We can detonate it in the woods behind my parent's house.
