I'm tellin ya, it's the answer
I mean, it's named after Thor. How epic is that
I just learned that “jet black”
Refers to the mineral “jet” who would have figured, I thought it was airplane black....
It is the answer, and the Thor connection adds to the epicness. Clean, sustainable, inexpensive electricity where just about every country has sufficient reserves to be self-sufficient, where Thorium is an unwanted product in the desirable rare-earth mineral hunt. Can't be weaponised, fails safe ( no Fukishima/Yerknob'lldropoffs), can be a modular replacement in existing infrastructure.
Hmm, it's the answer to so many problems. I doubt democratised power generation will be allowed in what remains of my lifetime though. Vested interests and all that. Still, fascinating tech.
And here I thought this was going to be a thread about TIG welding.
Yep- the powers that be sadly will never allow it (vested, as you say, in their various fossils/ancient tech)...until we get to the point that it's the only option.
Which will happen.
Have you guys not been paying attention, fossil fuels are out
And EVERYONE IS GOING ELECTRIC....
Oh! Wait! Fossil fuels create the electric!
It’s a scam!
Hey I thought drugs were a taboo subject around here!
Isn't he a character in Lord of the Rings?
Oh come on!! We'll find a way to weaponize it. At the very least I can see that if I threw it at someone's head it would leave a nasty gash. If I hid it inside a snowball as a stealth weapon it would be devastating...leaving another nasty gash. I think that it might also make pretty good arrowheads. So, maybe you wanna rethink your declaration, hmmmm?
Named after Thor...duh, it was discovered by a Norwegian and named by a Swede. Hello? You already have Thor's day on the calendar every week. Obviously "Odinium" was was out as they knew the Brits would likely mispronounce it like aluminum...and Lokium was too crazy for science. And what's up with "protactinium", "praseodynium"? Can we get something more pronounceable, please?
Sounds like an arcane element from a sci-fi movie that can be harnessed to create planet-destroying intergalactic death rays.
Meh. My favorite is Chromium. Sure, it makes stuff look cool. But it’s also known to reduce cholesterol, improve red blood cell efficacy, and manage your weight.
And best of all, the primary dietary source of Chromium is beer!
Then again, Thursday (Thor's Day) is named after him, too.
Also don't forget
Monday likewise comes from Old English “Mōnandæg,” named after Máni, the Norse personification of the moon
I like Cobalt Thorium G myself.
It may be the answer, but what is the question?
Heck, they've all Norse roots. Sunday comes from Máni's sister, Sol. Where's cancel culture when we need them? Rename the weekdays!
No...stop having weeks altogether, move to the fortnight system and call them "strongdays" (less homophonically challenged). That way we keep some of the old day names and add 7 more. The calendar gets wider but flatter...refrigerators doors will go back to being singles instead of side-by-side. Referencing days only 6 back will not require an adverb, like "last Wednesday". If it is Tuesday and you say "Wednesday I went to the store" everybody will know that was 13 days ago. No wonder you're out of eggs and shaved ham.
i always thought it was Jest Black, so you'd know it was only black, not no white or gray or anythin.
"what the heck are we gonna do now?"
