Best ever elements for 2021
« on: January 03, 2021, 12:28:01 am »
Maybe the best element for 2021 is Lithium.  It's the saviour for transport, only 500,000 gallons of water used per ton of production, and no immediate pollution where you actually live.  Also helps those completely knackered by the last year of hell.  (Other elements are available...)  As ever contributions and thought welcome.

So I'll start with:

They have....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTsrDpsYHrw&list=PLzD0K2OhbVfE5BWZ_S_LLFCePlOXdy6vX&index=23........China of course, because, simply put, they don't have a "legacy" vehicle manufacturing infrastructure to drag, kicking and screaming into the future. China has the advantage of starting a whole industry from scratch, just like Tesla is doing in America.....and China.

I quite like titanium.  Something well shady about the lithium car batteries though.  Completely knackard also covers medical uses of lithium...   Nice to have a positive song in adversity, and titanium is nice. Other elements are welcome.

It'd be nice to get the entire periodic table in songs but I doubt there are many about einsteinium or rubidium. And yes I am aware of the Tom Lehrer sing

Have to say that the David Guetta original featuring Sia is more to my taste, particularly with the sidechain compression bits turned up loud. Like the air being sucked out of the room, which is kind of apt, given the situation.

Nirvana got in there first with the lithium, though I think they were considering its use as an antipsychotic?

This is the memorial to Yuri Gagarin, in Leninski Prospekt, Moscow. It's made of solid titanium, weighs 12 tons. I stayed in the Hotel Sputnik, just up the road, in the early 1990s.

Of course, we could go for the whole periodic table in one fell swoop - over to you, Professor Lehrer!

The best one that I could have, is for the grill. It packed up a couple of days ago. :(

As a former molydenum prospector, I must admit I find that pretty terrible.
