    Link: Can You Name the Elements of the Periodic Table? - We all remember this from when we had to memorize them in the fourth-or-so grade, right?

    You never have to memorise them, they give you a table on the back of every exam paper.

    I kept mispelling Beryllium (I was spelling it Berillium), that was getting to me.

    I missed so many that I should have known that it was pathetic: Lithium, Aluminum, Phosphorus, Neon, Silicon, Silver, Potassium, Platinum, Tin, Iodine, Radon, Lead, Bismuth.

    Yeah, like I could SPELL the rest.

    I had to figure them out by mineral formulas and isotopes since I haven`t had to deal with a straight-on periodic table in a few years. Got about 25 or so before I realized I wasn`t going to remember all the formulas and said f-it.

    For Chemistry, I only had to memorize the important ones, the common non-metals, and certain other metals that you might use often, like lead.

    This is one of those numerous things that you learn, but unless you acutally use it in your real life, you forget it. I do recall learning these, but I never have to know them, so I`ve pushed it out of my mind. I only got 10, and I learned them easily over 12 years ago, that would have been like 6th or 7th grade.

    115/118. Tellurium gets me EVERY TIME.

    That`s Tom Lehrer for you. Plus an advanced degree program in Modern Chemistry.

    For the last time... Water isn`t an element, it`s a compound. H20! More than one element! Jeez...

    58 or so.
    Would`ve been higher, but I can`t spell these things.
    Not bad for flunking out of chemistry.

    82. Reasonable. Got most of the obvious ones, a good number of those named after people, and the systematically named 112-118. Missed a worrying number of transition metals, including Zirconium and Palladium. Should have got Bismuth and Strontium too.

    Worst group: Nitrogen`s and Oxygen`s (numbering varies and there`s none on the table). Worst period: The lanthanides, naturally.

    And Mithril`s not there because it`s not an element, it`s an intermetallic compound probably invloving a lanthanide.
