A stupid thing I made about Lingots.

Out of boredom and humor, I tried making a document about the chemical properties of Lingots (even though I have no idea how to determine chemical properties.) It's a work in progress, so there's not a lot to look at.

Here's the link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13kgbWsrfpBDh9_M6SmTj2eIwNO8shevIiFwcCHJ9vbs/edit?usp=sharing

If you have any suggestions about what I should add or edit, let me know!

EDIT: Added access so anyone can edit it. Don't edit anything inappropriate, okay?

According to the mass spectrometer, lingots are made of high fructose corn syrup, beet juice and a mysterious element unknown to modern science.

How comes that they still have their perfect crystalline form then? O_o One should need extreme pressure/temperature range to let the reaction run properly!

And if Duolingo is what it aims to be, the mysterious element is love. =)

This is a great thing, so I am sending you some more lingots to analyse! I would love to see a synthesis reaction and some methods of the instrumental analysis to prove the identity :D

What about how radioactive lingots are? And the freezing point of lingots?
I am a dunce when it comes to chemistry so none of that means anything to me.

Oh yeah, is there some place on Earth where they can mine lingots or are all lingots produced in a factory or a laboratory?

How does it go from the chemical formula to be in the shape of what we know as a Lingot. Do they use a freezer process or a mechanical process to shape it? What is the white dot on the upper-lefthand side? Why are some of the edges darker than the rest? Wow, who knew that there was so much to consider about a Lingot?

Can lingpts be found naturally on Earth? Where? Or do they orbit Saturn? Do they have any magical properties? Why do green owls love them so much? What's their evil plan??

Perhaps lingots might just be just plastic rubies with a painted shine on them XD
