The Heaviest Element Known to Science

I had to share this because we all need to realize that we CANNOT rely on the government to fix OUR problems. We need to fix our own problems by being responsible and good stewards of the time, talent and treasures that God has given each and every one of us. Every thing and every moment we have are GIFTS from God that we are to utilize in the best way that gives back to God and his people. If everyone lived within their own means, stopped living under truckloads of debt and shared with those in need we wouldn't have the problems that are so prevalent today.

Thanks to Dave Ramsey who shared this with his listeners while having a good laugh. I love Dave's common sense approach to getting out of debt and "living like no one else, so one day you can live like no one else!"

Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science.

The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of morons promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.
