I need your help because my ideas are drying up.  This is what I have so far and I’ve thought of about a dozen more to add that I can think of including the SCOTUS judges, and usual rabble of right wing talking heads.  I need help identifying the lying and corrupt politicians, blowhards and business execs that destroy America.  Also if you have some creative names that would be appreciated. Don’t worry about the formatting I’ll do that last.  Here is what I have so far on paper.  Click to enlarge the PTOE.

I was browsing some old pictures to download to my phone and I came across one of the funniest and most poignant images I came across during the election.  To think that we gave the country over to this people is mind boggling and worse is the fact that we might do it again.

Periodic Table of Criminal Elements

To satisfy my scientific post of the week as well following this paragraph are a few interesting versions of the periodic table.  There are many interactive versions of the Periodic Table some including quizzes on the internet and you can find those with a Google search.   Click HERE to see most versions of the periodic table scientists have developed through the decades.  Probably the most “accurate” form of the periodic table in 2D are the spiral configurations but the 3D interpretations are best.  Click on the Periodic Tables to enlarge to full size.

Most Up to Date Traditional Configuration of the Periodic Table of Elements (PTOE)

Traditional PTOE with Pictures of the Elements in Their Native Form.

An Interesting Classic Version of the PTOE Showing Electron Orbitals and Their Wave Functions

Early Spiral Version of the PTOE

Latest Spiral Version of the PTOE (this Spiral Version of the PTOE is actually a phenomenal on line interactive Shockwave version you can access by clicking HERE)

Another Spiral Version That Represents how the Electron Shells Form

This was my personal favorite of the PTOE but it never took off after it was developed in the mid 70’s

I’m digging that people are digging the archives.

And yes, welcome Bluebird!

Thanks guys, I was checking the place out and I thought I could hide out and make a quiet little test post, but it appears there’s this front page thing going on. I saw “Chemistry” and I couldn’t resist, then I saw this and couldn’t resist even more. I suspect there will be more elements we’ve yet to discover so this should have quite a few periodoc updates.

Ha! These are great, KQ! I especially love “delirium”.

Sen. Shelby, Riptornium

O’Keefe – Twinkite, Pimpliteum

Lou Dobbs needs something more ‘zesty’ – Iberophobium, Chorizophobium, Xenonphobium?

(for old time’s sake) Sanatarium – Santorum, because it’s too easy.

Gosh, I’m gonna have to think about this. So many people I loathe and disdain, and yet I don’t have a ready-to-go enemy’s list. We might need a ‘consensus’ on the biggest ass of them all though – that prime gaseous element, Rushbo.

I like plain old Xenophobia for Lou. Good one, Khirad.

K — your update is off to a great start. I’d add Beck as Delirium!

I love the last one — the interactive table on the link. Makes me wish I’d studied more chemistry.

Hilarious.

Someone should update this table with all the new elements that have come on the scene — Palin, Beck Wilson…

insanium, delusium, jackass …

That was worth it just for ‘obnoxygen’. You know I’ll be easing this into rotation and trying it out in antidotal ripostes against those with a toxic level of ‘lieum’.

BTW, I like the one with pictures. I only had one science teacher in summer school that really connected with my right brainedness. I always found science fascinating; but dry, binary and impenetrable the way it was taught. I know I slacked off memorizing, but I wondered why I should care about a letter I couldn’t touch, see or connect with.

This is hysterical, KQ. I’m gonna have to print it out.
If you’ve never taught a college class, you really should(have). You would be great in the classroom. Humor and real chemistry together? Who would have thought of it? But–for you–it was “elementary, my dear Watson!”

You are a master –
This is like a map to me, I could stare at these images for hours
I think we could update the Criminal map with some fresh crooks
There is a whole new crop of crooks
What would we call
Beck
Bohner
Palin
Bachman

Palin + O2 = Bachmann + S

Beck + H20 = Boehner + S

No matter what, brimstone is produced.

K, this is the coolest article you’ve ever posted on PPOV — from my own POV, of course.

I’ll be checking this out all week.
