Don't worry, I got it! But I wonder why it only contains the first six capitals, is there a reason?

Quite a few are missed off: what about germanium, arsenic, selenium, bromine, strontium and barium? Different ways of representing the lanthanides and actinides may cause strontium and barium to be missed off (or more to be added on) but I think germanium, arsenic, selenium and bromine are indisputable.
