[10:22] me: I don't know. I mean, I was typing them out into an array for a select box... And it seems easy enough to do less typing, and still be immediately recognizable. Easier than shorting the abbreviation of the states from three letters to two...

[10:27] me: Pop Quiz--how many of those are elements? ;)
