Surprised people aren’t tincorporating multiple puns. Their puns are nonetheless fun neonestly, zinc they’re the best jokes I’ve radon and xenon the site. Lead me to tears of laughter. However, people inevitably argonna roast them. Some of them are boron, but the other ones take the gold, unironically.

I just starts from H and then check the length of the names mentally. I was so freaked out when I reached the lanthanides; they are where I often get confused. Luckily still got all with 2:38 left.

This was kind of fun. It inspired me to make a swedish version: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/25526/grundamnen-med-korta-namn

Didn't expect there to be so many elements with short names!

weird how low radon is, you'd expect it to be close to xenon and argon. Boron on the otherr hand is much higher than I expected (but I guess that is because it is closer to the start of the periodic table)> My thoughts went, metals, noble gasses.. what else am i forgetting...
