Never be afraid to get dirty, but be sufficiently sure-footed to avoid the abyss of contamination.

The Seventh Element

With the Nirvana reference in the previous post, I became curious about the relationship between the drug and the seventh element on the periodic table. It turns out the drug is simply the ionized version of the element, the same thing you’ll find in your iPod battery. While I wouldn’t advise licking your laptop battery, from 1929 through 1950, there was a refreshing drink that featured the seventh element in its ionized form: 7Up. Ohhhh!
