Trivia

The name "franconium" suggests an element, but it is described as a "chemical", suggesting a compound of some kind. There is an element called Francium; its existence was predicted in 1870 on the basis of its position in the periodic table, but was not positively identified and named until 1939. It was the last naturally-occurring element to be discovered and is the second-rarest element, with only 30 grams in existence at any given time in the entire Earth's crust. See more »

Goofs

West is shot five times, including twice in the back as he falls to the floor. But moments later when he rises unharmed and removes the bulletproof vest, it is clearly seen that the vest only has a chest panel. The two shots to the back would have penetrated his body. See more »
