“Checkin’ off the Elements….Fair Weather Birthday ….. The Oxymoron that is Oxymoron”

Our bodies contain 60 of the 118 elements on the periodic table, or about 51%.  But there are only large quantities of six of them:  Oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus.

Every British king or queen has a second birthday assigned to them if their real birthday isn’t in the summer . . . so there’s good weather for their birthday parade. Like, Queen Elizabeth the Second’s real birthday is April 21st, but her “official” birthday is held on a Saturday in June.

The word “oxymoron” is actually an oxymoron.  It’s the combination of two Greek words:  Oxy, meaning sharp and keen . . . and moron, meaning dull and stupid.
