Fun with the periodic table

What was the first man made element on the periodic table? You guessed it, Technetium. You guessed it.

We were watching "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" late night, and the guy got this question for $250,000, and I told my husband that I would lose all the money just so I could pick Technetium.... and then I knew I missed my "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" calling after my 43rd element turned out to be the correct answer. My luck would never been that good.
