10/10 I'm waking up from ashe and dust....I'm radioactive- a song for me? Wow, didn't realize how highly respected I am.

10/11 Everyone has minor exposure to me :D. Maybe it's because I'm highly contagious.

10/13 Found out I'm so awesome they named a spring after me; radium springs.

10/30 Still single here. I was going to ask out oxygen, but another element asked her out right before I had a change. Oh well. @4evralone

Activities & Interests:

Back in the old days- around the 1900s people used me for all sorts of things. Because of my mysterious blue glow, I was used in hair products, toothpaste, ointments, and more stuff like that. I was really popular with the clock community because I made numbers glow up! Unfortunatley my fame soon vanished after it was discovered that I posed many health issues.

Radium was first discovered by Pierre Curie and Marie Curie. They were both respected physists.
