    Diana Rigg. needed neither gun nor umbrella.

    17. British people are all great mathematicians.


    and then over the quoted post here.

    And for me Markow is a great mathematician.
    When I looked up Georgi Markow I found out he was not the mathematician...

    you are sure about that?

    I give you the Noble Gases, but what else?

    I think the Swedes rank quite high as do the French and the Germans.

    Please give your source. I have a book ready, but would have to look up more than 100 elements.

    So what British chemist found a number of Elements like Scheele. (Answer Ramsay with the noble gases, but what else?

    Some don't count, those known since ancient times: copper, Iron, Gold, silver, lead,

    US researchers have created some elements (Seaborg et al) but probably not mire than 10 in sum. (We also have Russinas and germans creating elements)
