a magic number is a number of nucleons (either protons or neutrons) such that they are arranged into complete shells within the atomic nucleus. The seven known magic numbers as of 2007 are: 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82, 126. We hit a a magic number tonight on the dance floor. The way I look at it, we were a bunch of protons and neutrons dancing around and coming out of our shells. Too bad we didn’t have the neutron dance or the magic number song on our play list. One thing is for sure however… DJ Bran had a lot to clap about this time around. In fact, so did just about everybody. We called this the night of spontaneous clapping and rightfully so. The music had the beat. Punk, rock, 80s, soul, dance….you name it, we couldn’t contain it. We let go, we danced our faces off, and our energy created so much heat that someone shouted, “Is the air on in here”? The air was definitely on and there was some magic mixed in.
