just released a translation of Japanese illustrator Bunpei Yorifuji’s Wonderful Life with the Elements: Periodic Table Personified. Yorifuji has a cult following in Japan thanks to a series of cartoon etiquette posters he did for Tokyo subway riders, titled “Just Do It At Home.” The posters dance with humor and so does his version of the Period Table in which every element becomes a character, and a hard-working character at that.

    Well actually its boring name is “Ununtrium” ya-a-awn.
    Just last week, Japanese scientists were able to synthesize it for the first time (it was first “detected” in 2003-4 and it was predicted way back in 1969*).
