RADIUM, n. A mineral that gives off heat and stimulates the organ that a scientist is a fool with.
2010 Update: A radioactive element first discovered in Czech dirt and shown by the Curies not to be composed of slavic souls, as demonstrated by the natural glow and comparatively mild toxicity.
I'm first? No!!!!!!
Marie Curie was one of my big heros in elementary school
I wish I had actually learned about her in school--I guess I did later but I remember picking up a Landmark book (girls books about famous people) and wow
Radium watches on hands chasing fire-flies on a dark July night... and my verifier: faticare, part of the health care bill.
Does it matter what organ?
Good hot springs out that way.
i would give you a glowing report but i'm in the dark
ovaut: eggs that don't hatch
i just read that her papers and her cookbook are so radioactive they must be kept in lead lined boxes...
What makes a stick but not a firefly glow.
Raduim: the forefather of the gas under most of the homes in Maryland.
This blog is creepy. I'm revoking my contract immediately.
This is what happens when your English vocabulary comes from different songs, I now hear Madame Curie singing "don't you know that you're toxic?" in my head.
That's funny, Ariel. The English language can be peculiar sometimes. It doesn't translate well into other lexicons, or so I understand.
Pia, how long was your book report?
Tom, I had a radium watch when I was a kid. Probably why there's a peacock at the end of my wrist.
Thom, in scientists I think its the brain. The rest of us, on the other hand, oh let's say the wallet.
I doubt it, Karma.
Tilden, can they be read through the lead?
Actonbell, that sounds like a good one.
Sauerkraut, what makes a fireflow glow? C'est l'amour!
I think that's right, Cooper. All the more reason to stay in the attic.
Public domain, Ambrose.
Ariel, is that Monty Python?
Karen, I think that's English speakers.
Karen, that's so true! Not one language translates well into an other one, the only solution would be to learn ALL. :( Although it is so funny when you find the right term for somehting in a language other than your own, and it makes you happy because finally you have words for something you didn't have words for before.
