“Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
A major research institution has discovered the heaviest chemical element yet known – Governmentium.
Governmentium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons and 11 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an “atomic mess” of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected by how it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. The minutest amount of Governmentium can cause one reaction to take four to six weeks to complete when it would normally take less than one second.
Governmentium has a normal half-life of 4 years; it does not decay, but every four years undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. And, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause some morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some researchers to speculate that Governmentium formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as “Critical Morass”.
You will know it when you encounter it. I don’t know for certain, but I think we’re there!
