I found this on the MarketWatch chat boards today from a poster with the handle dio2. This is priceless and a good way to think of something else besides your IRA evaporating into five more years of working.br /hr /We have discovered the heaviest element yet known to science.br /br /The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.br /br /These 312 particles are held together by forces called mo-rons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.br /br /Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.br /br /Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.br /br /In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more mo-rons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.br /br /This characteristic of mo-rons promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever mo-rons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.br /br /When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many mo-rons.br /hr /As a former physics major (college was so long ago), I am especially tickled. – mk
