Anyone Up for a Discussion re: Fe?

  1. Sep 3, 2011 #1
    Fe is my favorite element.

    I love her less-than-absolute, yet still high, opacity to thermal energy as well as her status as an enormously capacious reservoir for the same. (As in: "I don't want it, but I'll hold on to all I can get!"; Fe is clearly the element with ATTITUDE!!!)

    I love that fact that the earth is, to a great extent, made of Fe, and, as if that weren't enough, more rains down on us from the heavens.

    I love her many allotropic crystalline structures, which make her a lady with a large wardrobe.

    And I love her bright glow when her electrons get excited.


    What does anyone else have to say?

    I had originally forgotten Fe's magnetic properties, so I failed to include a line such as: "She has a magnetic personality". But I withheld correction of my post for a while just to see how awake everyone on this forum was.
