T-Rex: T-Rex presents The Periodic Table:
T-Rex: 5. BORON
T-Rex: Relatively rare because it is not part of the stellar nucleosynthesis chain. It's all formed by cosmic rays hitting other elements.
T-Rex: It's the most boring element, hence its name.
Utahraptor: Hey, you're just making that up! That's not true at all!
T-Rex: I had to! And it's still the most interesting thing about it!
