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.

The “If You Can Read THIS The BITCH Fell Off” T-shirt from the 1990s.

I first saw this, on the back of a biker, during Laconia Bike Week, c. 1996.

I couldn’t stop laughing for two weeks.

I could never wear one since I was NOT a biker.
Thought about getting one for the jet ski, but the lifevest obscured it.


Saw this last night, in Hanover, NH, at the “Salt Hill Pub“, after Christmas Revels 2015 (North).

It is SO CLEVER at multiple levels (at least 3).

It was been worn by a (very nice) waitress. She was KIND enough to let me photograph her back, though when she gave permission, she had no idea what part of her (very attractive) backside I had designs on. She laughed when she saw what I had snapped.

Appears that they sell those T-shirts there and the waitresses wear them, on a rotating basis, as a promotional gimmick. She wanted to know whether I was interested in buying one. Alas, I pointed out to her that I was not in the habit of wearing T-shirts that promoted things and that I no longer partook in beer (just wine).


Third, maybe fourth time, we have been to the “Salt Hill Pub” — all, of course, after a show at the HOP. We like the place. Fun place. Decent food. Decent prices. Very friendly waitresses. Highly recommended.
