    At least you don't have to update all the flasks containing Lv and Fl compounds 8]. If those things actually existed for more than a few nanoseconds, it would be such a hassle with the confusion potential between Fl and F(lourine)I(odine)...

    Good to see 2 new official members admitted to the periodic table club.

    Re: Livermorium

    I don't think this name is appropriate. If you held an ounce of it, you'd actually Livelessium.
