Sent to me by my ex-coworker from the 1980s, Patrice Bourgeois, the same one who came up with those ingenious, inexpensive bookends.

Do you remember this T-shirt and the follow-up game I came up with:

Periodic Table Game: How Many “In My Element” Can YOU Make, Other Than Beer & Wine.

by Anura Guruge


Yesterday was the 182nd birth anniversary of Dmitri Mendeleev, the creator of the Periodic Table — and Google commemorated it, albeit just in a few countries, with quite a nice Google Doodle.

And then there is this VERY CLEVER “Periodically I am in my Element” T-shirt — the ‘element’ in this case Be (4) + ER (68).

Got me thinking, what OTHER ‘elements’ that we would LIKE to be in can we create using the symbols? I even provide you with a Periodic Table right here.

Yes, if I use 3 symbols I can make MY element: W (74) + I (53) + Ne (10) = WINE. Yes, that makes me HAPPY (in every sense).

I guess because of its connotation as the unknown value there is NO ‘X‘, though there is indeed an Xe (54). So that makes it hard to make my most favorite element though I can get a head start with Se (34).

Go ahead. See what YOU can make it. Enjoy.
