    You have guessed the element! it is Fluorine indeed! its your turn to think out a new element. Have fun!

    how do you define stable?

    Has non-radioactive isotopes.

    It seems that some members didn't got it. So, I have to mention another point of the rules. As long as the element of a certain member was not guessed, no one must not think a new element out. The member who guesses the element may think a new element out. As PythianLegume have guessed the original element, it is his turn and ONLY his one! So you have to guess his element, and only his one! the member who guessed his element may think out a new one.

    Yes but almost every isotope does have a half life.... it may be very long but it still exists..... i.e. it can be considered radioactive

    Fair point; has isotopes with half-lives too long to be accurately measured.

    I wasn't expecting to be interrogated

    Lead? It's pretty heavy and it's used as a radiation shield...

    That was indeed the element I was hinting at . Although I think it's use as a radiation shield is more due to it's ability to absorb radiation than it's lack of radioactivity.

    Is the atomic number of this element under 30?

    Too late - Deedee guessed it as Lead (so not under 30).

    Fair enough. Deedee, its your turn! think a new element out. The other members have to guess her element.

    Could it be that the element is a nonmetal?

    Lead I think is recognised as this? (but pretty much everything heavier than iron eventually decays to it apparently...)
