Okay, aside from being a science fiction geek, I'm also into science itself. In fact, my nieces think I'm extra cool for being a scientist. So much so that one of them wants to become a geologist too.
In a strange marriage of my fixations I have an RPG superhero character who has control over the chemical make up of things. Kind of like DC Comics' Firestorm.
I've always thought the differences in elements were cool. And now there's officially a new element. All it needs is a name.
