Mandatory Music: listen to this amazing song by The Arts and Sciences. Go on, press the button:

Nine is the atomic number of fluorine. The lightest of the halogens, fluorine is a pale yellow gas. Wikipedia says that “Many SSRI antidepressants are fluorinated organics.” Organic what?

Press the button and have a listen.
