The Manganese, Sodium, Barium, Deuterium, Phosphorus song. Or how I tried to use this AWESOME video for a science lecture.

“Mn, Na, Mn, Na… Ba, D, P, D, P…”

I was challenged by some friends to see if I could include the below video in a public talk I had to give last week on science literacy.

I think I succeeded. I used it as a prelude to demonstrating that Chemistry, and the physical sciences generally, are freaking everywhere. p.s. A warning: the video is AWESOME, but it will live in your head for at least a week if you play it.
