*mods move to skunk works if necessary, purly sceptical just odd coinsidence
hello ats! i was watching the daily show last night while they were discussing the prep-sheets the pundents recieve to inform them of what garbage to
spew.during his jokes they tossed up this picture
(sorry for the life of me i couldn't figure out how to post this pic)
the images copies the breaking bad tv shows logo with the periodic table elements at the beginning of the words. john stewarts says "faking bad"
instead, with "F" being element 9 and "Ba" as element 56. first thing i noticed was 9, 5+6 =11. out of curiostiy i checked to see if those
elements were properly represented, and if not what were they? they were as it turns out and here is what i found from there.
Brief description: fluorine is a Group 17 element. Fluorine is the most electronegative and reactive of all elements. It is a pale yellow,
corrosive gas, which reacts with practically all organic and inorganic substances. Finely divided metals, glass, ceramics, carbon, and even water burn
in fluorine with a bright flame. It is not uncommon to see fluorine spelled incorrectly as flourine
The largest application for elemental fluorine is the preparation of uranium hexafluoride, which is used in the production of nuclear fuels. To
obtain the compound, uranium dioxide is first treated with hydrofluoric acid, to produce uranium tetrafluoride. This compound is then further
fluorinated by direct exposure to fluorine gas to make the hexafluoride. Fluorine's monoisotopic natural occurrence makes it useful in uranium
enrichment, because uranium hexafluoride molecules will differ in mass only because of mass differences between uranium-235 and uranium-238. These
mass differences are used to separate uranium-235 and uranium-238 via diffusion and centrifugation. About 7,000 tons per year of fluorine gas are
used for this application.
Barium ( /ˈbɛəriəm/ BAIR-ee-əm) is a chemical element with the symbol Ba and atomic number 56. It is the fifth element in Group 2, a soft
silvery metallic alkaline earth metal. Barium is never found in nature in its pure form due to its reactivity with air. Its oxide is historically
known as baryta but it reacts with water and carbon dioxide and is not found as a mineral. The most common naturally occurring minerals are the very
insoluble barium sulfate, BaSO4 (barite), and barium carbonate, BaCO3 (witherite). Barium's name originates from Greek barys (βαρύς), meaning
"heavy", describing the high density of some common barium-containing ores.
a compound of barium is barium sulfate, "barite" heres what barite is used for
Some 77% worldwide is used as a weighting agent for drilling
fluids in oil and gas exploration to suppress high formation pressures and prevent blowouts. As a well is drilled, the bit passes through various
formations, each with different characteristics. The deeper the hole, the more barite is needed as a percentage of the total mud mix. An additional
benefit of barite is that it is non-magnetic and thus does not interfere with magnetic measurements taken in the borehole, either during
logging-while-drilling or in separate drill hole logging. Barite used for drilling petroleum wells can be black, blue, brown or gray depending on the
ore body. The barite is finely ground so that at least 97% of the material, by weight, can pass through a 200-mesh (75-μm) screen, and no more than
30%, by weight, can be less than 6 μm diameter. The ground barite also must be dense enough so that its specific gravity is 4.2 or greater, soft
enough to not damage the bearings of a tricone drill bit, chemically inert, and containing no more than 250 milligrams per kilogram of soluble
so bit of a stretch i guesss but i did find it weird that the two elements that were used are both related to why US is at war in the middle east, oil
drilling and nuclear fuel enrichment. and that they were used in spelling the words "faking bad". other thngs that stood out to me after looking all
this up is that the picture includes the repuplican elephant with hundred dollar bill behind it. and that the elephant is walking on a graph line that
is increasing. profits rising?
Are the PTB still throwing it in our faces? or am i just paranoid? please share your thoughts!
