Electron project with the vietnam war and the hippie movement as a guide
Presidents office circa December 1, 1969
Let's start a draft commander
Our army only has 60 units sir. We need a full 80 to win this war.
Davy goes off and decides that he will not fulfill his draft.
Ma I just got a draft card.
Davy arrives in New York city
Why should I join the army to fight in a pointless war?
To be a complete army there must be 80 units. Just like every element wants a full shell to be happy, and a shell holds 8 electrons.
Davy stumbles upon a hippie camp in New York City
What are you guys doing?
Oo man you got a draft card? That's tough
We're out here protesting the vietnam war
Hey man just burn it. We did
To fill those shells the elements bond with other elements and steal their electrons just like the draft took kids from their homes and threw them in the war.
So, the hippies bond and the war doesn't?
See man this is how it works: We are bonded to society but we are repeled by the war
And the army just takes us so they can be happy. They don't share equally.
Back in the president's office...
Some elements resist having their electrons taken
The draft worked sir! We now have a full army.
Davy ends up deciding that he wants to be a hippie
He then burns his draft card
Just like in H2O the 2 hippies are bonded but the other war/electrons are repelling them so they're all bent out of shape. And like oxygen the war just takes the electrons and hydrogen doesn't get to see them again.
The military diagram is also called a lewis dot structure and is used to show just how many valence electrons an element has.
