Doubly-True Elements by Mike Keith

Anagrammy Awards > Doubly-True Elements


A set of thirty chemical elements, anagrammed into a different set of thirty elements.

hydrogen + zirconium + tin + oxygen + rhenium + platinum + tellurium + terbium + nobelium + chromium + iron + cobalt + carbon + aluminum + ruthenium + silicon + ytterbium + hafnium + sodium + selenium + cerium + manganese + osmium + uranium + nickel + praseodymium + erbium + vanadium + thallium + plutonium

=

nitrogen + zinc + rhodium + helium + argon + neptunium + beryllium + bromine + lutetium + boron + calcium + thorium + niobium + lanthanum + mercury + fluorine + bismuth + actinium + silver + cesium + neodymium + magnesium + xenon + samarium + scandium + europium + berkelium + palladium + antimony + thulium

 

What's more, if you replace each element with its atomic number (= position in the periodic table),
there is still equality - making this a "doubly-true" anagram.
