In case you forgot, I’m a geek

The other day, I was in the car, and on a whim I tried to rattle off the names of all the Presidents. I know there’s a song or two, but I don’t remember the tune, just that there’s a rhythm to it. Here’s how my little ditty went:

Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Boron, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen

That’s about the time I realized something was wrong.

I tell you, though, I am counting the days until President Technetium is out of office.

    So funny — but now the elements song is stuck in my head.I should’ve just trusted your geekiness, but I glanced up at the periodic table in my office to see if 43 really was Technetium. It said “Ma” – what the heck is Ma? Apparently in 1937, technetium was called masurium. Maybe I need a new periodic table.
