Chocolate and the periodic table

I was playing around with my (useless but whimsical) Periodic Table Compliance script, and decided to try chocolate. I hit the jackpot -- apparently you can map the letters in chocolate to periodic table elements in 4 different ways. That's more than any other word that I've tried. Maybe I can start a whole new mystical pseudo-science around the study of periodic table compliance :-)

The given word can be mapped to element symbols as follows:

SymbolElement NameAtomic Weight
C Carbon 6
H Hydrogen 1
O Oxygen 8
C Carbon 6
O Oxygen 8
La Lanthanum 57
Te Tellurium 52
Average Atomic Weight:19.71
SymbolElement NameAtomic Weight
C Carbon 6
H Hydrogen 1
O Oxygen 8
Co Cobalt 27
La Lanthanum 57
Te Tellurium 52
Average Atomic Weight:25.17
SymbolElement NameAtomic Weight
C Carbon 6
Ho Holmium 67
C Carbon 6
O Oxygen 8
La Lanthanum 57
Te Tellurium 52
Average Atomic Weight:32.67
SymbolElement NameAtomic Weight
C Carbon 6
Ho Holmium 67
Co Cobalt 27
La Lanthanum 57
Te Tellurium 52
Average Atomic Weight:41.80

We found 4 way(s) to map the word to symbols.

Comments

I can't think of any use for this script but it's just great! Browsing around, for no obvious reason, looking for pages with chocolate and periodic table in them and landed here. Pleased to see that beer and wine are compliant words as well. Anyway, greetings from WebElements!

and given that still the number one use of the web is for sex, have you tried the usual suspects (porn and naked) in the table?

(slightly) perverse minds want to know

Mark,
Nice to hear from you. Webelements is pretty cool and was certainly a big help in my PT-compliance script.


Martin,
Yes, I tried a variety of words, realized that a bunch of them were umm...not kid-friendly, and decided not to automatically display all successful PT-compliant words.
