The Periodic Table As Underground Map
The periodic table is really a wonderful thing. So simple, yet so dense with information. At the moment it was thought up by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869, even though a majority of the elements that we know of today hadn’t been discovered, their place was already set at (or rather on) the table. The arrangement of periods and groups immediately relates like with like, and illustrates atomic differences in a simple table.
But it doesn’t illustrate all the relationships, which is why many alternative periodic tables have been proposed. Mark Lorch’s periodic table Underground map is the latest artistic entry into that category.
New relationships come to light: Life depends mostly on the downtown turquoise line, and there’s a new connector train between the metals mercury and gallium, thanks to their liquid properties at certain temperatures.
It’s.. it’s beautiful.

Oh hey. Remember this guy? Well, he managed to get an actual payout from attending college. It just cost his sanity and 15 lbs!
Continuing on my previous post, I would just like to say you don’t know true horror until you spot this grotesque insect in your rearview mirror and turn around just to make sure your not being haunted by the spirit of your previously totalled car.
And lucky for me, it was evening and the headlights were on. Go ahead. Find the headlights. I’ll wait. Nope, those are the highbeams. And check out the windows. They seem to shrink the further back in the car you are. I suppose it’s because it’s technically a “mini SUV”, whatever the fuck that means. I just- I’m so angry when I look at this.
And people are buying this! Why? I ask you, good people of tumblr, why?!
Can we talk about the surge of these cars I’ve noticed lately? I couldn’t find a directly head-on view or one from the back so you can truly appreciate the ugliness of this car if you’ve never seen it. Who has jedi-mindtricked all these people into spending money on this? I suspect it is the same people who managed to market PT Cruisers and Cubes.
I understand you want to make a “car of the future”, yet one that rebels against current conventions of aerodynamics. But stop. Make pretty cars for me to envy on the road. Not cars that make me gag!
Thank you. That is all.
My hometown. So proud <3
… it was a reminder that we must begin to seriously consider the values of our thuggish white youth.
… More important than white politicians are the white parents. I’d like to ask the caregivers of the children in these videos what they’ve been doing. When did so many white parents fall asleep at the wheel? You can complain about poor schools all you’d like, but the fact of the matter is that it’s the parents of these children who are letting them leave the house looking like slobs in their baggy board shorts and Hollister t-shirts. It’s the parents of these kids who are letting them listen to violent, self-destructive trash like “Anarchy in the UK” or “Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue”—performed loudly by noted conservative rocker Johnny Ramone.
