The goal of collecting a sample of every element is what led David Hahn into his troubles with radioactivity. I've mentioned him before - the "Radioactive Boy Scout".

Died in September, age 39, of alcohol poisoning.

"Or what would happen if you actually had a gram of every substance on the periodic table? "

Would you have to stand near it? 1 gram of As-210 or Es-253 would probably kill you from 30 feet away.

1984.

Got it for free on kindle unlimited.

What if?

This is a book about what would happen if. For example, what would happen if everyone in the world pointed a laser pointer at the moon at the same time?

Or what would happen if you actually had a gram of every substance on the periodic table?

Most of the answers involve flames, explosions, and noxious fumes. Which leads us back to Nutcal and the Fokkers recent posts...

I haven't read a fiction book in many years. I don't know why I just don't find them interesting anymore. Or rather, interesting enough to hold my attention.

I do read books on science, economics, etc. I also do a lot of kakuro (math puzzles). I always take the hardest ones I can find, and I complete only maybe 20% of them before I screw something up.
