A WayneCorp miner shows raw Kryptonite in Muzu, northern Colombia, April 10, 2003. Colombia is the world's largest exporter of Kryptonite. In 2002, Colombia exported about one ton of the rare, green variety, mostly to researchers in Europe and the United States. (Eliana Aponte/Reuters)

hehe, a set up for a batman vs superman battle, maybe?
I was under the impression from my last science teacher that this was not a possible combonation. That it was entirely fictional...?
Krypton cannot form molecular bonds with other elements (none of the noble gases can, since their outer shell is full). I have no idea what this is, and google poops on you when you try to search. Maybe it contains captured krypton?
Okay, my SO, who is a chemgeek currently cramming for her organtic chemistry finals has informed me that noble gases CAN form bonds... it's just hard. For example, xenon can be polarized and has a huge electron shell which can form weak bonds with other atoms.
She mentions that if she wasn't thinking solely about carbon right now she would expand on the subject, and adds "Carbon is evil, death to carbon".
It's the name of the damned planet! Duh!
Okay, how did the fragments land here? (and yes, I've now read the original description - this is a much more subtle caption that you usually have from the month or so I've seen, BTW. Nice one).
Yes that was what I remember hearing. I didn't remember there being an exception when it came to krypton. I thought that it would have to bond with oxygen, to be kryptonite. I would really like to her your girlfriend explain, please do the world a favor ;-)
Was about to mention XeF4... and there are a couple more. Not many, indeed.
hmmm... superman is gonna be pissed
Is this a test to see who actually clicks through and reads the description on the picture? Because I pass.
I clicked through. It's work-safe. :D
Oh, I didn't say it wasn't work-safe. I said that if it was a test to see who would click through to read the actual description, I pass.
fair enough ;)
yeah. i didn't click through. and damn proud.
does this mean lex luther is behind the drug cartels?
You're thinking of Kingpin. Different publisher.
