The Heaviest Element Known to Science

I got this in my email this morning and couldn’t stop giggling. Yes it’s foolish but it’s also funny.

Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element yet
known to science.

The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant
neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving
it an atomic mass of 312.
