They are for entertainment, not for help in the quiz.
Pb: A great visit on a budget, especially for shooting, fishing, and scuba diving. The formerly vibrant painting industry has waned since 1978.
Bi: Don't hesitate to bring your marshmallows. Fires are always safe on Bismuth, due to its very low thermal conductivity (second only to Hg).
Lv: Like East Timor and South Sudan, this newest named destination is often overlooked by mainstream tourists. But you better hurry hipsters, it has a half-life of only 60ms.
At: If you can't find Astatine, you're not alone. Astatine is so hard to find, no traveler has ever found enough to report a density or color for this location.
Xe: Don't let the noble landscape fool you, when the sun goes down, the strobe lights and flash cameras will come out.
Br: From the Greek for 'stench', visitors often say of Br, 'If the stink don't kill ya, the toxicity will.' Prolonged visitors can get Bromism, which is not as cool as it sounds.
Cl: Foodies, like electrons, are strongly attracted to Cl for it's popular salts. Steer clear of the sulfur 'mustard', though.
O: Essential for any trip involving terrestrial creatures, travelers rave about how easy it is to locate, rating it third easiest to find.
N: Outdoor enthusiasts go to nitrogen more than any other destination when they need a breath of fresh air.
Si: Though the 'valley' gets a lot of news, visitors rave about the beaches, you can't have a good beach without Silicon.
Ga: A winter visit can lead to some solid fun, but when the temperature gets above 86°F, it's hard to find a dry spot.
A winter visit can lead to some solid fun, but when the t
Zn: Brass has been a staple of Zinc's vibrant art scene since ancient times. (See Genesis 4:22 in the KJV)
Cu: In addition to sculpture and dyes, Copper is a great place for artists of architecture. Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Renzo Piano all worked in Copper.
Ni: A popular roadside attraction is the U.S. 5¢ piece, which can be melted down and sold for well over 5¢, because of the high prices in Nickel.
Rh: The peak of luxury is found in Rh. You won't get into a party here if you don't wear your finest silver or white gold jewelry or if you show up in a pre-1975 car.
Fe: When shopping for stainless steel flatware in Fe, you can use a magnet to test if you have 18/10 steel (weakly magnetic) or the cheaper 18/0 steel (strongly magnetic)
Mn: If you're looking for ancient art, the Gargas Cave Paintings in Mn are ideal, but don't forget about the Roman and Egyptian glassworks, for which Mn is also famous.
Cr: Although heavy in manufacturing, Cr is also known for its colorful landscape; especially ruby reds, school-bus yellows, and steely grays.
V: The land of V was discovered twice. First, by Andrés Manuel del Rio, who disclaimed his discovery upon dispute. Second, by Nils Gabriel Sefström, 30 years later.
Zr: Tread lightly in the bars of Zr, if things heat up, even water-drinking residents can get dangerous. Avoid 3-Mile Pub and Fukushima Taphouse altogether.
Ta: Traveler beware! The highway through Ta has no exits for food or drink! If you don't want to end up like Tantalus, stock up in Zr.
W: Better pack your fan, W can get hotter than anywhere else in the metal region. We're talking hotter than any known ceramics can handle. Actually, you better pack two fans.
Bh: Don't let the name fool you, Bh is far from boring. That's like saying the orbital atomic model or the end of the Old Quantum Theory is boring. Uncertainly not!
Hs: If you have time for a few illusions, take a drive down route Hs-270, called 'Doubly Magic' by illusionists for its intersection with magic roads Neu-162 and Pro-108.
Mt: A feminist travel guide points out that Meitnerium's namesake co-discovered fission, but was not included in the Nobel prize that her male co-inventor won for the project.
Ds: Don't stop in Darmstadtium, you're almost there!
