The periodic table has enjoyed a rejuvenated coolness ever since Breaking Bad. Personally, I always thought there were loads of interesting stories associated with the elements (ie: Copper and clean air/water systems and the 1976 outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease OR Iodine and Mahatma Gandhi and the British salt tax. Apparently the British have an inspirational way with taxes and revolutions.). So I’m “breaking” out the elements again- this time to celebrate that jolly, old elf. How does he know if we’ve been bad or good? NSA?
