I got to UW and the chemistry department was selling shirts my freshman year. I still regret that I never bought one because they had two boxes with chemical information being U (Uranium) and W (tungsten of course) as well as all the other information such as atomic mass, protons, etc.
One of my biggest regrets from that year is that I didn't
buy one. Tungsten is one of those elements that isn't brought up in conversation enough and the shirt could really have helped that out. It was also awesome looking, but there I was a freshman, too afraid to buy something that geeky...what a shame.
But Zinc is good too. Once during High School chemistry we had a demo of a simple battery (zinc and copper) and I was unable to resist the urge to yell, "COME BACK ZINC!! COME BACK!!" in front of a silent room of bewildered juniors.
Hey everyone (or actually so far just me). Your benevolent dictator and community moderator, Abatha (me!) welcomes you to what will surely become the greatest community on the entire internet, as we band together in our love for that irrascible scamp of an element, TUNGSTEN!
Just to start us out:
Here's a wicked cool glamour shot of Tungsten! So dreamy!This
is a pretty wicked cool test about which element you are! Unfortunately tungsten is not one of the responses, but it's still cool!
is a pretty wicked ridiculous website I read right before I started thinking about how cool tungsten was and started this community!!!!
A'ight, Seacrest OUT!
