Jessica Lee left a coded message in her yearbook photo.

Internet, meet Jessica Lee. Here's her high school yearbook photo. She seems nice enough, if you can judge a person by their smile. Actually, there's a study that suggests you can. People who make real smiles (not smile for the camera smiles) in their yearbook photos were doing measurably better in quality of life measures years later. Interesting, right? Oh, and what's her quote? Huh? It's just a bunch of elements. Okay, whatever nerd girl. I guess you just love chemistry so much you had to put down all of your favorite elements for your yearbook quote.

Just for kicks, I wonder what happens when you write out Jessica's element list by their periodic table abbreviations:

Flourine (F) Uranium (U) Carbon (C) Potassium (K) Bismuth (Bi) Technetium (Tc) Helium (He) Sulfur (S) Germanium (Ge) Thulium (Tm) Oxygen (O) Neon (Ne) Yttrium (Y)
