    What makes up a B.Ra.In.Y. C.H.I.C.K. & B.Ra.In.Y B.O.Y.?

      BRAINY BOY:

        B. Boron is found in the common mineral borax, but is rarely seen in pure form.

          Ra. Radium was widely used in self-luminous clock and watch hands, until too many watch factory workers had died of it. This antique watch is still quite radioactive, and will stay that way for thousands of years.

            In: Indium's major uses are in low-melting-point alloys that replace mercury in thermometers, and in flat screen televisions.

              Y. Yttrium is rarely seen in pure form and has no applications as a metal. Yttrium-aluminum-garnet (YAG) is important in lasers and yttrium is also used in the phosphors of color television sets (the old CRT kind).

                B. Boron is found in the common mineral borax, but is rarely seen in pure form.

                  O. Oxygen makes up 21% of the atmosphere, and is what you breathe in to survive!

                    Y. Yttrium is rarely seen in pure form and has no applications as a metal. Yttrium-aluminum-garnet (YAG) is important in lasers and yttrium is also used in the phosphors of color television sets (the old CRT kind).

                      BRAINY CHICK:

                        B. Boron is found in the common mineral borax, but is rarely seen in pure form.

                                C. Carbon- A diamond is forever, unless you heat it too much and it burns up into Carbon Dioxide gas. Graphite is also pure carbon and widely used in pencils, but not nearly as pretty.

                                  H. Hydrogen- By weight, 75% of the visible universe is hydrogen, a colorless gas. In space, vast quantities interact with starlight to create spectacular sights such as the Eagle Nebula (seen by the Hubble Space Telescope).

                                    I. Iodine sublimates into a beautiful violet vapor when heated. Iodine and iodine solutions were used as disinfectants before better antiseptic agents were found.

                                        K. Potassium is the 7th most abundant element on earth, making up 2.4% of the earth's crust, by weight. Potassium is not found free in nature.
