Periodic Table of Stuff

Today's Map on Monday is not exactly a map, or perhaps it is in a way. Click here for larger version.

I don't know what you think but this version of the periodic table makes a lot more sense to me than that one we had in school chemistry, the one with elements like Gadolinium, Terbium and Dysprosium. I mean, who has to deal with Gadolinium, Terbium and Dysprosium in everyday life? Whereas Tears, Vomit and Blood are the stuff of normal existence if you are a parent (or grandparent) of little kids. And I am sure we will all see enough of Snow, Frost and Ice before this winter is over.

The only thing I am bit confused about is where are Wd and Dt?

It's missing Dirt, Duct Tape, and Ice Cream.

WD and DT are rolling around in the back of my car. There is dirt and lint stuck to the outer edges of the tape roll, and the spray nozzle on the WD is partially broken off but still works. The red extension tube is no longer attachable though.

Duct tape isn't technically an element, it's a compound composed of denim (D) and chewing gum (Cg).

Its chemical symbol is DCg.

Compounds are substances that can be separated into elements only by chemical means, as anyone knows who has tried to extract chewing gum from denim.

I like elements. They are such intelligent animals, and they do amazing things with their trunks.
