Fair warning, this video is an illustrated version of the periodic table set to The Can-Can. There are consequences to watching. But hopefully one of them is that you learn all the chemical elements in order without even trying, which would be a convenient, if incredibly nerdy, bar trick to bust out sometime. Even if Asap SCIENCE doesn't succeed in committing the whole table to your memory, you can at least be reminded of some classic favourites from high school chemistry. And the visuals are a helpful mnemonic aid. But if you really hate The Can-Can you might want to steer clear of this. If you forgot how the periodic table works a long time ago and it hasn't been an issue so far you're probably in the clear. [Asap SCIENCE]
