> > This new element has no protons or electrons, thus having an atomic
> > number of 0. It does, however, have 1 neutron, 125 deputy neutrons, 75
> > supervisory neutrons, and 111 team leader neutrons, giving it an atomic

> > contact.
> > According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Governmentium causes
> > one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would normally
> > take less than a second.
> > Governmentium has a normal half-life of approximately three years; it
> > does not decay but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a
> > portion of the deputy neutrons, supervisory neutrons, and team leader
> > exchange places.
> > In fact, any Governmentium sample's mass will actually increase over
> > time, since with each reorganization some of the morons inevitably
> > become neutrons, forming new isotopes. This characteristic of moron
> > leads some scientists to speculate that Governmentium is formed whenever
> > morons reach a certain quantity in concentration.
> > This hypothetical quantity is referred to as the "Critical Morass".
> > You will know it when you see it.
