Too soon, subby. Too soon.

Not getting this reference. Ozzy's still alive (he just doesn't seem like it some days) and the bat died over 40 years ago. Are you somehow confusing this with Meatloaf?

Perhaps he's just eaten a rate and really couldn't bear to think of squeezing in another one.

Just enough heavy metal is what you need.

Awww.  Is this not an article by that science author who caused the stem tab flame war the other day.  I was hoping for a redux of that.

Don't denigrate china's official soup. They might take you away.

Honestly, I would be far more interested to see a periodic table of elements that can ONLY exist inside the heart of a star due to temperature and pressure requirements. Wonder if we will ever be able to figure out what those are and how high the periodic numbers for them would be

About 90 percent of all the lead on Earth, for example, was made in low-mass stars

I have to call bullshiat on this.  Lead can only be made in supernova explosions (or neutron star collisions?), which require fairly high mass.

Yep! I was struck by the way the article contradicts almost everything I know, or think I know, about element formation via fusion.  I ain't no scientist, but i could science write better than this
