Brain Waves is Chlorine?

Quick one: Humbug put together a periodic table of blogs that is a take off of the period table of elements in chemistry. Check out Brain Waves placement where chlorine would be. Looks like I missed being a noble gas by one electron, a problem that Brad Delong seems to be interested in understanding more about.

Well, actually, my table is only 12 columns wide, whereas the real chemical table is 18 columns wide. I wanted it to fit on a typical monitor without requiring scrolling.

So I wouldn't say you're Chlorine because of your position on the chart, because the positions don't really match. I'd go by the symbol I gave you, Ba, which is Barium.

By the way, I was also at the Neuroesthetics conference last month, and I will be blogging about it in another week or two. Stay tuned.
