The Lazy Gas?

  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?! nrHVOFG2V-c
