I may not be very nice if you hold me,
But I could tell you the time.
My melting point is rather low for a metal;
Only mercury has one lower than mine.
Expose me to water and very angry I'll be,
Though some of my friends would be angrier than I.

Hm. I was think sodium, but I knew that couldn't be right. Good to learn something new!

doesnt sodium do the same? or similar? I recall touching it....once. excellent

Sodium is very similar! The things that distinguish Cesium from Sodium in this teaser are their meltings points, reactivity, and the fact that Cs is used to register time in official government atomic clocks.

If you attempted tohold a handful of Cs, the reaction would cause youto cesium and desistium!
Good Teaser!

If the metal has such a low reactionary rating, then at what point is anger (fury) so prominent? I thought the level of reaction displayed the furious nature of the element or anger level? Excellent Teaser, Good to learn something.

oh, no, it is low in the group in the periodic table--Cs is actually very reacive.

Oh and thanks.

Thought it was rubidium because you say "some of my friendS" which I thought ruled out Cs and Fr. I think Fr has a lower boiling point than Cs as well

Yay!! I got that!

Small factual error: You have stated Lithium as being the most reactive of the alkali metals, but the intensity of the reaction goes UP along with the atomic number. So lithium is the leastt reactive.

When I heard the part about the low melting point, I thought, Mercury! But then I read that it wasn't mercury and I was, like, oh.
