Mankind in Periodic Table

definition of periodic table: table in which the chemical elements are arranged according their atomic numbers

guess it's rather familiar for anyone who studied chemistry before. the table itself contains all known elements that fundamentally form everything on earth.

n now wat's running in ur mind? no. u r wrong. i m not goin to talk about chemistry here. i mean. erm. nothing to do with wat u've heard in the class. it's just something that ran across my mind. to define human elementarily. using periodic table. of coz it's neither something great nor very scientific. it's just some thoughts. u can laugh at it afterall.

to continue reading. u first have to have some basic ideas about periodic table. on the planet earth. every physical material is formed by atoms which r known as the smallest compound. an atom is formed by electrons n neutrons n protons. wat determines the type of atom is the number of protons n the number of electron determines the atom's reactivity. shit. im sounding like teaching. don give a rat ass (learn this from movie...hehe) to the nerdy academically chemistry. wat i m trying to say is that actually the human beings behave almost the same way that atom reacts chemically. well, this is not scientifically proven or anything. the idea just came to me out of no where.

basically there's 2 types of elements. (i say basically) which r metal n nonmetal. then metal is divided into smaller groups n so r non metal. N so is mankind. devided into male n female basically. besides noble gases (the whole row on the right hand side), every element tends to form bonds with others. should i say besides weird people, everyone tends to form bonds with others?

the characteristics of metal (read male) n nonmetal (read female) forming bonds r as below:

a. they form bonds with nonmetal which is called ionization (read love n sex). n it's a very strong bond that can withstand high pressure n high temperature without splitting. of coz the bond can be broken. but it's one of the strongest bonds in chemical substances.

2Na + Cl2 -> 2NaCL

b. metal doesn't form strong bonds with metal unlike nonmetal. nonmetal forms very strong bond with others nonmetal. which is known as covalent bonds - they share electrons to form bonds. which explains y female can be superbly close to another female - they share gossips n secrets. well, one very good example of covalent bonding is H2O, water. by adding pressure or temperature u can only change the form of water but u cannot break the bond. u have to use electrolysis to break H2O into H2 n O2.

however metal forms metallic bonds when there's a large amount of atom. that's y metal is a very hard subtance. but it requires a lot of metal (a little piece of iron contains A DAMNED LOT of iron atoms) Males form strong bond when there're a bunch of them together. e.g. a football/basketball/watever sports team, a military troop....or those who share the same interest. usually they do great things.

c. there r always exceptions. so amphoteric elements exist. so were human beings, weren't they?

hmmm....there're still a lot more. but it's getting deeper n i have to further explain n that'll will bore u to the max so i shall just skip it.

life is chemical. right?
