Cesium wooooo!
Cyberblah
I'm pretty sure I saw this in middle school. I was disappointed that they didn't go on to Francium. Unfortunately it has a half-life of 22 minutes.
Banal Intercourse
I believe that at any given moment, there are less than a thousand total Francium atoms on planet Earth. It might be less than a hundred.

there are six alkalines, lithium, sodium, potassium, libidium, cesium,
and hash, here let me slice off a chunk

hells yeah! I've seen that. Its more or less the only cool thing I've ever seen in school, the memory has stayed with me. In fact I think I remember my friends older brother *telling* describing it to me. When you go into 3rd year chemistry you get to see this!
Robin Kestrel
I love, love, love everything about this. Especially the way he says "at all".

I hate the alkali metals. Probably not as much as water but pretty damn much for a regular guy.
jangbones
I carry a murderous vendetta against noble gasses

GravidWithHate
The transition metals killed my brother. Rich bastards got off on the charges...

It took me a long time, but I finally learned to move past the hate.

I don't know enough about chemistry to know if you just used charge the way I think you did, but good job.

Jimmyfranks
This makes me giggle with glee.
The Mothership
This is great.
jyrque
Cool.

Ah, like a refreshing antidote for those El Enin cretins. I really hope Potholer takes a slam at those guys.

Also, fuck yeah cesium!

Dumb science question: are the metals reacting to the air or to the humidity in the air?
Nyms Lives!
BI, they're reacting to the oxygen in the air.


"The 7th alkali metal, sarcasium cannot be shown as although it said it was really excited about coming by and helping, turns out it really didn't mean it."

Enjoy
SPOILER BELOW:




Cesium wins.

ELEMENTALITY

FLAWLESS VICTORY

This time, we put a safety screen between us and the reaction.

The guy pouring it is on his own.

My otes:

Reaction of Cesium with water produces impressed whistle

Progression of reaction intensity is non-arithmetic

Hypothesis: Reaction of Francium with water would produce impressed whistle in excess of 120 decibels
