You may have been wondering about the growth
The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by investigators
at a major US research university. The element, tentatively, named
Administratium, has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of
O. 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. It is also surrounded by vast
quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
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.
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. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as
government agencies, large corporations, and universities and can usually be
found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.
Attempts to determine how Administratium can be controlled are not promising.
