Via Jeffrey Harris: What is the only chemical element whose name contains no symbols for chemical elements?
I’ll go so far as to hint that the answer is a very commonly known element, and not, say, Ununpentium.
Update: And look at that: Jeffrey has also posted a Marching Bands to his Web site. “Turning 27” refers both his new age (happy birthday!) and the fact that there are exactly 27 words turning within the bands.
