Periodic Table of Mad Men

I am obsessed with the fantastically feminist phenom show Mad Men.  Don Draper is cool as can be and Joan is a sort of anti-hero (I love her to death but I am so glad I don’t have to be like her to be strong in the workplace).  I love this periodic table (found at flavorwire – link below).
Spolier alert for Mad Men and Sopranos!  Revealing details to come….
Element Pb (Peggy’s baby) was the most horrifying moment of television I had ever watched- well, that and when Adrianna got shot in The Sopranos.

Designers: Think you have a good eye for color? Get proof…

How good is your color vision?  Arrange these tiles by hue to find your score – (based X-Rite’s official FM100 Hue Test).
Brag: I got a perfect score (a zero), which pretty much made my week.  Guess the Color Theory class I took in the UC Extension design certificate program a few years ago paid off….  or maybe it was my compulsive color-arranging of clothing, books, and iPhone app icons (practice makes perfect).
Friends who are designers and visual artists seemed to score between 0 and 10.  Aesthetically sensitive non-artist friends reported scores between 10 and 25.  Share your reactions to the test – and your score if you like – below.

“I like the fact each one is unique and feels a bit flimsy.  They seem a bit more precious and people seem to take more care with them.”
