WE’VE GOT YOUR (ATOMIC) NUMBER…

If you’re anything like us monkeys at ThinkGeek, your education about atomic particles evolved in the same order that the different models occurred chronologically. When you’re very, very small and someone shows you a representation of an atom, they show you something that looks like this – the Rutherford model. As you get a little older, maybe 5th or 6th grade, you graduate to the Rutherford-Bohr model. Finally, sometime in high school you’re introduced to the electron cloud model. This is unconfirmed, but a certain copywriter monkey might have possibly burst out in tears (just a little) in the middle of physics class when introduced to this version. Our teachers had already admitted to lying to us intentionally once on this subject. Now we’re to believe they’ve lied to us about the same thing twice? And why? Because they thought we couldn’t wrap our heads around the truth? WTF? Give us the idea. If we can’t integrate it, we promise to fall back on another mental model. Just give us a chance, at least.
