|Clipping of thin sheet.|
Sometimes things just fall in your lap out of the clear blue sky. This morning I heard on the radio about a girl with an incredibly thick accent in England who had a small asteroid fall on her foot. This evening a friend I've know from highschool, Donald Barnhart, called up and asked if I'd like some scandium, because he had just picked up a clipping of it and thought I might like it. I said, um, yes, it was only the number one most wanted element on my list of most wanted elements!
The rest of the story about where it came from will have to remain untold, because the source wishes to remain anonymous.
On September 17, 2002 a fraction of this strip was de-accessioned from the Table to be sent to David Franco in small thanks for the many elements he has contributed.
