    I don’t if I’m in luck or if I’m sad, but I never learned the periodic table of elements in high school.

    Sing along everybody!
    There’s Antimony Arsenic Aluminum Serenium and Hydrogen and Oxygen and Nitrogen Uranium….
    (Tom Lehrer’s “The Elements” song)
    I memorized it for 100 points of extra credit.

    Maybe it’s a calendar to track Pigita’s moods?

    Pig, tungsten is 3 weeks away. You have neon on Saturday . . . and you’ll be mostly inert.

    “It’s just another Magnesium Monday…”

    Why does that sound like something out of Schoolhouse Rock?

    actually, it predated schoolhouse rock by a decade…

    Despite taking 3 terms of chemistry, I don’t think it’s something you learn so much as memorize elements of it as you use them in other classes. I’d never be able to memorize some of the stuff about them if they were not used in so many different classes. Minerology used a mess of it. So did petrology.
    Seemed like the most common discrete metal or metal compound in the Siskiyous was arsenic. Blech. The uppermost section of Grouse Creek not far from Mt. Ashland flowed yellow from it and everything in the stream was orange tinted. No plants whatsoever for some yards until it was diluted by other streams/springs. They say don’t eat yellow snow, but don’t drink yellow water. (Or any water that lacks plants.)

    Pig isn’t reading it right.

    The weeks are longer than on a regular calendar…..
    and we don’t have names for so many days…. but

    Beryllium is quite clearly on a Monday….

    And I’d say Tungsten is definitely a Wednesday…. especially as it’s a “W”…

    Corzak is right…. Neon is Saturday… and Sodium is Sunday….
    then after Magnesium Monday this will be a surprisingly empty week!

    The following Thursday is Aluminum…. such a light workday you could go to the movies afterward.

    This one’s way above my learning. I road the short bus to school and to work..

    What happened to Goat’s use of grammer?

    “What do you got going on?”???

    He should have asked, “What do you have going on?” surely.

    Goat didn’t use his grammer and she died last year anyway. And Pig’s name isn’t Shirley!
