Reason for the my title. It has to do with Argon, you know the element Argon. My favorite element Argon. So here's a little information on Argon.
It is one of the noble gases, chemical symbol Ar and atomic number 18. You can easily find it on the periodic table by looking on the right hand side, it's right below Neon (Ne) and right above Krypton (Kr). Argon is present in our atmosphere and it is the most abundant noble gas on Earth. It was discovered in 1894 by Sir William Ramsay, a Scottish chemist, and Lord Rayleigh, an English chemist. Argon is used in labs everywhere. It is also used in incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs to prevent oxygen from corroding the hot filament. Also used for arc welding (form an inert atmosphere), growing semiconductor crystals. And here's a little more info for you geeky chemists ;)

So why don't more people have Argon as their favorite element?
