Hey everyone. Well the part I need help in isn't exactly the chemistry part. My assignment was to research an element, and at the end, come up with some creative picture/cartoon. The problem is... I'm not exactly the creative type. My element was Mercury, any ideas? Humor and creativity is strongly encouraged.
Example: Polonium was represented by a shirt with the polo symbol on it.
Another place you can look is
www.webelements. Click on Hg and scroll down the right side. There are a number of cartoons at various stages of the screens. When I was a student (MANY long years ago), mercury was shown as a runner (as in jogger but running), with wings on the shoes and clouds of dust behind. That is fitting considering how elusive "quicksilver" is when handled.
