Now that we are 4 months into the current administration’s tenure it is fairly clear that it will adhere to the basic nature of governmentium:
Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 to 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium’ s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.
Thanks to the eldest modulator child for bringing this back to our attention!
Back in 2005 governmentium showed up in our humor category and was certainly created both as a little bit of truth about government and a lot of truth about the bush administration.
