Lethargy (Reaching Critical Mass)

Administratium (Ad)

by William DeBuvitz

(This bit of humor was written in April 1988 and appeared in the January 1989 issue of The Physics Teacher. William DeBuvitz is a physics professor at Middlesex County College in Edison, New Jersey (USA). He retired in June of 2000.)

"The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by investigators at a major U.S. research university. The element, tentatively named Administratium, has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have one neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75 vice neutrons and 111 assistant vice neutrons, which gives it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons.

Since it has no electrons, Administratium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Administratium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second.

Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.

Research at other laboratories indicates that administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.

Scientists point out that Administratium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising."

Further Research:

"Since Administratium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Administratium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete when it would normally take less than a second. Administratium has a normal half-life of 3 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons and assistant deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Administratium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization causes some morons to become neutrons forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that Administratium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass." You'll know it when you see it."

Administrontium (Am)

by Ellin Beltz

"The first photograph of crystals of a newly discovered element were taken using special equipment developed by Physics Non-Department Professors recently, according to a press release distributed by University Disinformation Tuesday.

The element, called Administrontium by its discoverers at California M and M University, is the heaviest element yet discovered by scientists. Created in their massive confusion reactor, the element has no protons or electrons and an atomic number of zero. However, it has one neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75 vice-neutrons and 111 assistant vice-neutrons giving it an atomic mass of 312. The higher level particles are held together by a continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons, while lower level particles are held together by peons. The absence of electrons precludes covalent or ionic bonding, but Administrontium has a different form of bonding, referred to by some California M and M workers as a sort of "old boy network" or male bonding.

Dr. Inrico Squirmi of the Physics Non-Department said that the discovery of Administrontium answers questions long unsolved by physicists such as why certain reactions take immeasurably longer in atoms with high numbers of neutrons. He said it appears that even elemental samples considered pure may contain traces of Administrontium. "Even a little Administrontium is enough to slow down a simple reaction," he said, adding that one reaction which should occur in less than a second required over four days to complete after exposure to Administrontium.

Squirmi explained that since Administrontium has no electrons it is chemically inert and has a normal half-life of approximately three years. However, Administrontium does not actually decay in three years, but undergoes a reorganization during which the assistant neutrons, vice-neutrons, and assistant vice-neutrons exchange places. He added that the atomic number may actually increase after each reorganization although scientists have never been able to find the additional neutrons but their presence can be inferred by an increase in mass and inertia.

California M and M scientists reported that they found Administrontium occurring naturally, once they knew the unusual nature of the element. It has been found most significantly in excellently appointed office buildings in the Western nations, South America, Africa and parts of Asia. In addition, archaeologists have discovered concentrations of it in the ruins of Egyptian and Chinese cities. Russian scientists report that levels of Administrontium in Moscow actually fell slowly after the Chernobyl disaster, according to sources in the former Soviet Academies of Science. American researchers point out, however, that the Russian results have not been confirmed by independent testing.

Another Physics professor at this institution, Dr. Far Out Om, said that although Administrontium has been considered toxic in any concentration since it slows or destroys productive reactions, new research indicates that the pathway of its effects is similar to that of calcium/strontium replacement. "Administrontium replaces the skeleton, if you will," he said, "It is a very, very nice reaction. Very slow, but irreversible." He added "Once Administrontium takes over, you will never, never get rid of it, no matter how much money you can spend."


Bureaucratite

"Scientists have released the secret of the source of Administratium; Administratium is refined from a repulsive amorphous material similar to a thick petroleum tar but much more viscous and sticky. This substance is known as Bureaucratite.

Bureaucratite should be avidly avoided as it almost completely freezes progress. Anything unfortunate enough to venture into a deposit of Bureaucratite is instantly trapped and becomes entirely coated with the bituminous mess, although it may take weeks or months to sink out of sight into a deposit. Many creatures, long extinct, have been discovered within such quagmires but better preserved than those found in ice or tar pits.

Extraction from a deposit, should one be so lucky, is always excrutiatingly long and painful and rarely completely successful. Many unfortunates are haunted by innocuous bits of the stuff which always turn up in the most unexpected places and inconvenient times. People unlucky enough to have been exposed to bureaucratite have exhibited dangerously raised blood pressures, heart rates and bodily temperatures along with extremes of emotion."

Bureaucratritium (Bs)

According to work done slowly by the National Institutes of Disease in Bedstead, Maryland, Administrontium can decay into a compound they have named Bureaucratritium. The toxic effects produced by Bureacratritium result in headaches, dizziness, bloating, an insatiable appetite, massive weight gains, inability to concentrate on work, compulsive copying and faxing, and eventually paralysis which ends after 15, 20 or 25 years. Persons suffering from Bureaucratritium exposure are recommended to take jobs in small, private companies where its effects can be mitigated by enterprise, initiative and risk-taking."

Governmentium (Gv)

Research has led to the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction normally taking less than a second, to take from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2-6 years. It does not decay, but undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes, not to mention multiple oxymorons.

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. That hypothetical quantity might normally be called "critical mass" but, in this unique case it is known as "critical mess".

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium (Am), another just-discovered element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

Update: Professor Lesley of the Grunhaus Project has studied the new element and advises on what happens when Governmentium is subjected to Fission reactions Two new elements are created: Agencinium : Atomic Mass: 200 Inquirimoronium: Atomic Mass 198

The location of Governmentium deposits is found in every US state capital, with a mother lode in Washington, D.C.

A UK correspondent comments: Governmentium may have just been discovered in the USA, but vast seams of it have been mined in the district of Westminster, London for several hundred years and has been exported to every city and town in the UK. Everyone who comes in contact with it becomes morose and apathetic. There is no known cure for an overdose, other than cutting it out and dumping it in mid-ocean.
