Periodic Picnic Table

On the campus of Wake Forest University is a "Periodic Picnic Table." It looks like a nice place to eat a lunch, although someone must have been extra hungry because Darmstadtium and Roentgenium are missing (which is unfortunate, because those elements are highly radioactive).

[John Takao Collier, 04/08/2014]

The table was unveiled April 15, 2003, by Wake Forest seniors Nazila Alimohammadi and Anna Clark.
