Science Has Disappointed Me

I was all excited when I heard that Jermaine Jackson was cutting a new album, until I realized that I had just misunderstood this story. It's about cutting an atomic element, Germanium.

I guess that they need Germanium for solar cells, so the story is good news as far as alternative energy goes. They'll be able to produce solar cells more efficiently with less waste and at a lower cost, but it's kind of a crappy consolation prize for me.

There is no atomic element named Jacksonium.
