A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the
heaviest element yet known to science. This new element has been
tentatively named "Administratium."

Administratium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons,
and 11 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.
These 312 particles are held together by a force called morons,
which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called

Since Administratium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be
detected, as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.
A minute amount of Administratium causes one reaction to take over 4
days to complete when it would normally take less than a second.

Administratium has a normal half-life of 3 years; it does not decay but
instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant
neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Administratium's
mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization causes
some morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of
moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that Administratium is
formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration.

This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass."
You will know it when you see it.

Ha ha ha... :D I just read that joke today, but instead of "Administratium" it was "Governmentium"... It's a good joke.... 8)
