A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. This new element has been tentatively named "Governmentium".

Governmentium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 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 as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would normally take less than a second.

Governmentium has a normal half life of four years; it does not decay but instead, it 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. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to speculate that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypocritical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass."

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element which has half as many peons but radiates just as much energy since it has twice as many morons.

Many thanks to Toren Smith in San Francisco

Star and flag because, even in the midst of a threatened NWO and all of the associated dire predictions, there is still humour to be found.

Funny,well observed, pithy and astute.

Well done!

Thank you! I just cleaned it up a little from the original.

Here is another paraphrase:

Do not go placidly amid the apathy and laziness. Remember that your silence is consent and there can be no peace where there is injustice.

You cannot please all the people all the time, shout your truth from the mountain top and don't accept nonsense from the bigoted, the ignorant or the selfish.

Avoid the loud, the angry and the aggressive people, life is for living, not crying over small hurts. Lies like nails once driven are hard to remove.

Be tolerant of the diversity that makes everyone special and be aware that there are no persons greater or lesser than yourself, they are all just different.

Don't live in the past or future. Enjoy the present. Today IS.

Don't become obsessed by your own career. It cannot give you security or possession of anything or anyone.

Exercise trust in your dealings but be careful, as the world is full of material people.

Become yourself. Express affection for all people and all species, all of the time.

Be skeptical about romance for it can be as fleeting as a summer flower. True love will last a lifetime.

Don't become tied in your ways and never surrender your sense of wonder.

Don't be defensive. Be optimistic and imaginative.

Fatigue and loneliness are born of fear. Be rigorous in accepting responsibility for your actions and their consequences.

You are a child of your less than perfect parents who were once children too. And whether or not it is clear to you, things will only work out if you work too.

Whatever you conceive God to be, also be aware that every single thing you do actually changes the world, both good and bad.

You can have a life of joy or sadness, no one can walk your life for you, they are your feet and you must choose your path.
