Which element is lazy?
It is Argon, named by William Ramsay in 1865 named from the Greek word ‘Argos’ – which means lazy.
But why lazy? Well, it doesn’t do anything (ie, react) so Ramsay felt this was a good name.
There is a retail store in the UK that has the same Greek name…… I wonder if they realise what it means as well?!
