    I recently won a free cup with my name on it. What should i put on it? I want something science-ish, but it can only be in capital letters, and 22 characters max. Any suggestions?

    far too many, but funnier than hell anyway. um...................

    DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE my favorite, colorless, odorless chemical, that can be poisonous and fatal in large quantities.

    Oh... cool. That made me think about SULPHER HEXAFLORIDE - 5x heavier than water and colorless, odourless, non toxic and non flammable. You can float stuff on what looks like air... really cool.

    But yeah... the alchemy one would be cool if it wasn't too many characters. I have until thursday, so keep the ideas coming!

    [EDIT: You can't have 'THE CAKE IS A LIE' becacuse of 'profanities'

    There is no cake, only GLaDoS!
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.
    ~Jean-Paul Sartre

    The cake is a lie comes from the portal game; it was a piece of grafiti seen around the place.

    I'm just a kid - don't drink coffee. Besides, you can't have 'there is no cake, only GLaDoS' because you need it to be in capitals. What is GLaDoS anyway?

    whats the cup made of?

    maybe you could have the chemical formula of the material, so if anyone asks "what is that"

    it's a humor joke... the best kind :wink:

    Yeah. I think it's porcelain... you know the kind of stuff they make mugs out of. I'm not too sure... anyone know what the chemical formula for that might be, or how to find out?

    This won't work if profanities aren't allowed, but...

    Yeah... I can't say that any chemical formulas ore allowed. You can't have any puncutaion apart for a '-' and they all have to be capitals. Sorry guys.

    If you found an exciting new word for eccentric, then I might use it.

    Cromulence should not be underrated.
