    From what I see, yes, but technically since there are three distinct orbits, we should asume that one shell has 2 electrons, the second has 8, and the third has between 1-18 electrons. Total= 11/28 electrons.

    Electrons don't fly in orbits I heard.

    If I might add, the core does not look big enough for such a big atom.

    It's a ritual circle around a floating carrot.

    I had thought it was a Storm Thorgerson, but I'm not seeing it at his website. I'll have to go look it up.

    Tiassa,

    And I thought it was a Rene Magritte (although I have never seen that pic before).

    The image is an album cover; it was designed by Thorgerson but the photography is credited to one Dimo Safari.

    Mine is a character from the anime Angel Sanctuary. It's a bit perverted but really beautiful. I suggest you all look it up.

    It's lithium? Or an ion.

    Mine is the infinity symbol!

    Ahhh. Didn't think about it being an ion. Very wise...

    Actually I think you are right and wrong. Electrons have all kinds of rules that they MIGHT follow. But, electrons don't orbit. The move but their movement is very unpredictable. They do hold in shells but they may or may not be constantly changing places. One of the greatest driving factors for point mutation are electrons being where they shouldn't be. They are in a place where they CAN be. But, they SHOULD NOT be there so the base pairing gets out of whack.

    But as for my avatar it is a dead bird. I call myself the great mediocre because I am like the med-Hi setting on your stove top. I am the bourgeois. Birds are amazing. They can fly. They have tiny brains but are intelligent. The tiny brain is because of their enormous eyes that allow them to see what we can only imagine. Oh they can fly. They can also fly. And, my most favorite thing about birds.........most of them can fly. A dead bird is still a bird and inherits those amazing traits. But, it is dead so - who cares. It is great but not really. The great mediocre.

    I also like the juxtaposition of using such a pompous word to say I'm not that great.

    My avatar is probably a result of a google image search of my name. So I guess you could say it's a firefly.

    I've got the album cover to Pink Floyd's "The Division Bell". I was intrigued by the two statues simply staring at each other... it's bizarre.
